Angel: Illyria - Haunted GN (Angel (IDW Unnumbered)) - Scott Tipton;Mariah Huehner I think this is the last of IDW's Angel related comics that I'll be reading. That's probably good. This one isn't even particularly interesting on the surface: Illyria's apparent interest in the meaning of life, the universe, and everything isn't a stunningly original concept, and the execution is a bit lackluster. And let's face it, Illyria is not exactly a character capable of carrying a miniseries, even a short one, by herself. Which must be why she's teamed up with Spike, to bring some life to the pages. But he can only do so much, and the end result can best be described as "meh". The art is some of the best I've seen in these IDW comics, though. At least all of the characters consistently look like themselves, which is a huge step up.
