Gunn and Fred show up. Gunn is a big guy with one eye who can apparently turn into a dragon, and Fred is a black woman in skin-tight suits who shoots lightning out of her fingers because of her I.L.L.Y.R.I.A suit. Hee. They offer to let Angel join with them, but he decides to take on the devil alone and abruptly hooks up with a demon woman. What? Oh James Bond randomness. Spike/Sarah beats him up and throws him out. He decides he can't do this alone.
In an epic last battle with the team, everyone bands together; Spike turns sides; and the world is safe once again. This is a hilarious story, and any Angel fan will crack up from the changes to the characters. This really does seem like something a Hollywood company would think to green light, and because of that it completely works. It also connects with the regular series because Angel is well known in LA now and famed for saving them from Hell. So, of course, it was only inevitable a movie would be made about him that would be grossly inaccurate! It gives readers an idea of how the common folk in the comic look at the hero now that he's in the open and also lets the audience snicker at the ridiculousness of the story and dialogue. The art is great — and doesn't Nicholas Cage look like a great Angel wannabe? Ha! There are also Angel cereal solicitations that will crack the readers up.
The Angel Annual #1 is on sale December 23rd, so fans keep an eye out. This is worth getting; it's laugh out loud funny in several places.
