Set in the aftermath of the After the Fall storyline, Only Human is a miniseries starring Gunn and Illyria. The summary makes rather more of the story than is actual there. If you believe the copy, it's about Gunn and Illyria struggling to return to their former lives after hell, and Illyria coming to terms with the legacy of Fred. Not so much. Neither seem terribly bothered by what came before (the mainline book does a much better job of dealing with Gunn's guilt, and Illyria never seemed that [...]
I'm always skeptical as to whether an ultra-powerful god can team up with a human street-fighter. The imbalance makes it so awkward, but this managed to pull off the unwieldy Superman-Batman team-up. Although I think I'm just about done with I'm-a-psychopath-but-I'm-trying-to-fit-in-with-normal-people-unless-someone-tries-to-kill-me, but maybe that comes from watching Dexter and reading about OOTS's Belkar.
I liked it a lot. Fred/Illyria are one of my favorite characters from Angel. I was glad to read a story about her.
I wasn't sure if I should read this book or not, as if follows after the Angel: After the Fall storyline, and I never had a chance to read the second half of that story. However, once it arrived in the mail today, I simply couldn't resist and jumped in almost right away.This is the story of Gunn and Illyria, after everything is over. They're both at crossroads within their lives and trying to find a role for themselves in this new present. Fred's parents call to tell her that there's been a deat [...]
Gunn and Illyria go on a road trip after 1) LA's return from Hell and 2) news that Fred (the human body the demon Illyria inhabits) uncle has died. While Illyria decides to explore what it is to be human (and apparently not caring very much about it) we get added info on both her and Gunn's past. An attempt is made here to give demons actual personalities and understanding of their motivation. While creator Joss Whedon has back away from this series because of recent online controversy over this [...]
For a change, I thoroughly enjoyed one of the Angel comics again. Yes, the fight sequence was a bit too drawn out and I would have liked to see more of an interaction between Illyria and Fred's parents, but that aside "Only Human" has a lot going for it, and I flew through it.The place Gunn went to made him so interesting, he was never one of my favorites on the TV show but his arc in the comics I find rather fascinating. And Illyria was one of my favorites as soon as she took over, what a shame [...]
I wasn't expecting this to be quite the standalone story that it was, but it wasn't bad. The writing was more to my liking than the immediately preceding volume, even if it was narrowly focused on Gunn and Illyria. It might not move the overall series along right away, but it does give some more character background and explain how they are coping with their memories of the non-history of events "after the fall."
A spin-off volume following the events of Angel: After the Fall, involving Illyria and Gunn and them dealing with the after-effects of the finale. There were some interesting glimpses into both of their histories, but overall this just fell flat for me. There really wasn't much depth here, and it was disappointing just how much of a standalone this wound up being.
A road trip with Illyria and Gunn, where they happen to come across the Scourge. Some really nice character bits, and it does feel like an Angel episode. You can literally hear the characters speak in your head. A good read. Nice and self contained, just the odd mention about 'After the Fall'.
I loved this volume definitely my favorite one of the Angel series so far. The storyline for Ilyria was amazing and had a great outcome. It was nice seeing her and Gunn together and working as a team.
Better, much better. It had a nice juxtaposition between uber powerful and merely human, enjoying an exploration of what it means to be both or neither. The art was much better, too. This one was quite enjoyable, but then, I've always loved seeing old ones fight.
Continuación de Tras la caída.
This was a really rich story featuring Gunn and Illyria. The visuals are just stunning and the story is solid. Must read for fans of the Angel tv series and these characters.
2 stars. Disappointing. Illyria arcs are usually my favourite, but nothing really happened here? It was just pretty blah. She's better off teaming up with Spike.
I enjoyed this. Call me a fanboi but I'll take and excuse to go back into the Buffyverse. Who wouldn't want to go on a road trip with Elder thing blue and Gunn?
