Angel #4

The first arc of the re-imagined spin-off comes to a close in Angel #4 as Angel is transported to a demon realm to do battle with Amarkax (who has been feasting on victims in California through social media). Despite being haunted by his past and visions of a future featuring a certain blonde Vampire Slayer, Angel is able to take down the demon after learning his name and providing the final ingredient in a spell to bind him for the next 10,000 years or so.

The issue doesn't include any flashbacks to Angelus to help further explain the mysterious woman who the vampire turned. With the comic moving forward to a big crossover event with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I guess we'll have to wait and see just what role she may play down the road.

The comic also features a scene between the victorious Angel and the more lucid Fred who foreshadows more trouble to come as well as the next member of the gang to be introduced to the fight. Worth a look.
