ComicNewsi Reviews Angelus #1

Angelus is another one of Top Cow's supernatural characters like Witchblade and the Darkness. In fact, the Darkness and the Angelus are the primal forces of light and darkness, and through a truce created the Witchblade together as a balance. Angelus first appeared in the pages of the Darkness in 1997, and received a one-shot in Top Cow’s acclaimed Pilot Season title in 2007. Now Angelus has a new mini-series; let's see if it's worth a look.

Following the events of Top Cow's “First Born” limited series and “War of the Witchblades” storyline, the Angelus force is now within Danielle Baptiste. But unlike previous hosts, she still maintains her free will. And, apparently there are those who have a problem with this in the first couple of pages. After a quick side trip to hell, we join Dani and her companion Finch as they're settling into their new home in New Orleans. Supernatural hi-jinks are not far behind, as Dani struggles to figure out just what is it she's supposed to do now.
