Angel never impressed me as much as Buffy did.

For one thing, the hulking vampire-with-a-soul lacks the obvious assets of a young, blond, former cheerleader. For another, he broods too damn much.

In The Curse, Angel's first collected tale under the IDW banner (Dark Horse representatives have already bemoaned the mistake of giving up the rights to the title, especially now that the new run of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is doing so well), our brooking, hulking hero is off in Romania seeking the descendants of the gypsies who cursed him with a soul. He wants them to turn off the switch that reverts him to bloodthirsty mode if he achieves perfect happiness, a condition that manifested itself only once before, when he made the big happy with Buffy, turned evil and started killing people -- including the very gypsies who thought a turn-off switch on his curse would be a good idea.

Now that Angel is dating Nina, a lovely blond werewolf (apparently their relationship survived the uncomfortable closure shown as Angel's TV series drew to an end), he wants to be sure that doesn't happen again. Getting on the gypsies' good side means getting involved in a coup against a ruthless despot who (you might see this one coming) has an army of vampires in his employ. And, of course, it turns out only one of the gypsies has the ability to alter Angel's curse....

Although IDW's take on Spike in his own series of books has been pretty impressive, Angel falls short. The art matches the tone -- gloomy, brooding, bleak -- and sometimes you just want Angel to get over himself for a few minutes. The story also lacks the ensemble feel that made the TV series a success; Angel doesn't do nearly so well on his own, in part because it was his merry band of sidekicks who provided the humor and the human perspective.

I'm sure this isn't the last we'll see of Angel. Let's hope he pulls himself together in time for the next story.

Angel travelers to Romania in search for Clan Kalderashto to ask them to amend the Ritual of Restoration to allow him happiness without losing his soul.

It's been ages since I saw the TV-series or read an Angel book so it was nice to find Angel graphic novels on Scribd. I actually don't have time for reading graphic novels right now since I need to finish some books. But boy it's nice to take a break from all the books to read a graphic novel instead.

I liked the story in Angel: The Curse. As usual nothing goes as Angel wants because the clan Kalderashto is fighting the regime of Corneliu Brasov. Angel needs to help them fight Brasov to get to Natalya Kalderash because she is the only one that can help him with the curse...

In this first of IDW's Angel mini-series, our favorite dark haired vampire with a soul journeys to Romania in an attempt to have the curse placed upon his head amended so he can have true happiness with Nina, the beautiful blonde werewolf from Angel's fifth season. On the way he encounters a rag tag band of Rom fighting for their very lives against a genosidal dictator, and must decide if lifting the curse is worth siring a new vampire and having that on his conscience.

I think because it's written by Jeff Mariotte, this series has the right `feel'. You can hear the character's voices in your head, and it feels like a continuation of the Angel series. Furthermore, fans that used to read Angel under the Dark Horse banner will be pleasantly surprised by this beautiful treatment. The art alone is to die for. David Messina uses heavy black lines to keep a noir mood while staying true to the character's look.

Overall, I recommend this for any Buffy or Angel fan. Long time fans will like small cameos of some old, favorite characters in Angel's memory, but any newcomer can buy this graphic without knowing anything about the character and still follow the story nicely.

This graphic is a great addition to any library.

Highly Recommended.

This was my first Angel graphic novel to read, and it didn't disappoint. The story was really cool, finding our hero back in Rumania looking for a cure to his curse. I have no complaints about the story at all, and it had some good action in it, and felt like Angel all around.
As far as the artwork, I have a couple thoughts. The inks were great; nice bold, solid blacks and Angel actually looked like Angel, which is no easy thing to do, artistically. Now, as an amateur artist myself (who loves comic art) I had a little bit of an issue with the coloring. The gradients used on the faces were too smooth and unnatural looking. It ended up making the artwork look rather flat because the planes of the face and skull weren't taken into consideration. So, I'd like to have seen some better colors in this.
Overall this was certainly worth a read for any Angel fan, and I'm getting ready to read "After The Fall" next.

The art work is decent, but not great. It is a good thing they told us that it was Cordy in the poster, or I would never have known. The story didn't dawdle, but never really dragged me in. I really wasn't disappointed, I guess I was just expecting more (I had just read "Spike" which was exceptional in both art and storys). It takes place post fifth season and gives no clue as to whether anyone else survived the black thorn. Have to read elsewhere for that. It was good, and I do reccomend it. Just don't expect it to be more than it is.

The plot for Angel: The Curse is interesting, Angel goes to Romania to remove the curse the gypsies placed on him(not to remove his soul, but to remove the block preventing him from experienceing a moment of true love). It supposedly takes place after the events of the final episode of the TV series "Not Fade Away", but if your hoping to discover the final results of the series finale your looking in the wrong direction. Though Angel: The Curse lacks answers to the many questions going through the heads of fans, it does serve as an intriguing Angel story, and is recommended to all who still long for the show.
