Live Through This is the tale of retribution and atonement after Angel, Whedon’s popular vampire with a soul, commits a horrific act in the previous novel. Faith, the rogue vampire Slayer with a tumultuous past is the only character that will stick by him – and for good reason. During the TV show, Angel was the only person who stuck by Faith during her crash-and-burn phase.
The artwork in this graphic novel was amazing. The characters all felt as if they’d never gone off the air. The dialogue was also spot on, and all the way through reading I could hear the TV actors’ voices quite distinctly.
Angel and Faith make a fabulous pair – Faith is still a slayer, after all, and she’ll do her duty if Angel goes too far in his atonement. It was very entertaining seeing both of their growth through this graphic novel.
