‘Willow: Wonderland #3’ Review: The Calm Before the Storm?

The third issue of Willow: Wonderland was released this week, and while writer Jeff Parker finds himself joined by Angel & Faith writer Christos Gage in the writing credits department this month, after two intriguing and engaging chapters, Willow: Wonderland #3 feels a little lackluster. Let’s hope it’s just the windup for the “punch” that’s coming in Issue #4.

‘Angel & Faith #17:’ Comic Book Review

This week saw the release of Angel & Faith #17 and the second part of Christos Gage’s “Death and Consequences” arc. I have been consistently and extremely complimentary of both Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs’ work on Angel & Faith (mainly because their work has been consistently and extremely fantastic), but the current “Death and Consequences” arc is pushing us to a place in the season where not only is the plot of Angel & Faith hitting a new high point on almost every level, but so is Gage and Isaacs’ mastery of Joss Whedon’s characters and the now magic-less world in which they exist!
