Angel & Faith Season 10 #6 Review

How will Faith’s new found interest in Deepscan go, and how will Angel react when an old face turns up? Read on to find out.

The official description from Dark Horse:

Faith’s next mission for Deepscan is one she can’t resist—tracking the missing Riley Finn in South America. The girl has got some residual guilt over that military demon hunter . . . Meanwhile, in London’s Magic Town, Angel is confronted by yet another old frenemy.

Angel & Faith Season 10 #6 variantAngel & Faith Season 10 has been a fabulous addition to Dark Horses’ Whedonverse series, with it at times being even better that Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10. Jumping into a brand new story titled Lost and Found, the series sees Faith get more involved with Deepscan, as she helps them in their quest to find Riley Finn. Meanwhile Magic Town’s protector Angel sees a face from the past, as Amy Madison asks for his help.

Victor Gischler has been doing an awesome job of this series over the six issues that have been released so far, as though like most series some issues have been better than others, it’s always been entertaining. Getting this latest story off to a great start, Gischler allows enjoyment for both new, and old fans, following on from the last story, whilst making it new reader friendly. Despite being exciting the issue does suffer from the common problems that new arc first issues have, with the set-up sometimes overpowering the general atmosphere.

I may sound like a broken record when it comes to Will Conrad‘s art, but nevertheless it yet again impresses. Being some of the best work throughout his career, Conrad give us a very detailed and dynamic feel to this series, bringing the energy that a Whedon related series needs. He also as ever captures the character likeness from their actors perfectly, and along with the wonderful scenery it really helps to give definition to his art. We also get wonderful colours from Michelle Madsen, with her vivid palette livening up Conrad’s art even more.

Angel & Faith Season 10 roles into a new story arc, giving us yet more tantalising developments. Highly recommended.

  • + Will Conrad never fails to impress with his art.
  • + Faith gets right into the Deepscan spirit.
  • + Victor Gischler sets up an intriguing tale.
  • - Like many arc openers the set-up takes away from the atmosphere.
