Hellmouth #1

Hellmouth #1 officially begins the five-issue crossover event that has been building in both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Drusilla has the key and the Hellmouth is open. Get ready, 'cause Hell is literally set to break loose. And if you missed anything, Cordelia is here to sum up things for you.

The first issue of the mini-series offers the first official meeting of Buffy and Angel as the ground underneath Sunnydale cracks open and all manner of creatures begin to pour out. Hellmouth #1 also explains why Drusilla needed to stab Spike with the key (other than her being bat-shit crazy).

Hellmouth #1 ends on a cliffhanger. This time around Buffy isn't fast enough to prevent the Hellmouth from opening, and now she and Angel (who she doesn't yet know is a vampire with a soul) have no choice but to follow Drusilla down into Hell (where another character from the show's First Season may be waiting?). Worth a look.
