  • Angel: Blood And Trenches

    john byrne is writing and drawing angel: blood and trenches, the 4-part wwI flashback series.

    note: the first two definitely have no angel in them, but is that a touch of hobo-angel?:

    I love the drawings, but what is an Angel flashback series without Angel himself?

      i fear john byrne might not know btvs/ats as well as he should before writing this. i hope to goodness he's familiar with why we fight. he needed some help finding pictures of david boreanaz. (and connor rocks!!!)

      done right, this would explain why angel is reticent about joining the human fight in WWII, but actively scouring newspapers and being "patriotic"--but with no human contact.

      to me, that should be the basis of the story, rather than... 'hey, i've always wanted to do a WWI story!' hopefully, this takes in account the various flashbacks we have and how they deal with angel's relationships with humans.

      this flashback obviously fits between angel arriving at ellis island in 1902 and angel in chicago in the early '20s... going from rat-eating hobo-angelus to more or less up with the times until the late '70s (going by the music on the jukebox), when he became a bum again.

      willing involvement in WWI until perhaps he was found out would explain angel's reaction and humanless, hands-off preference in why we fight.

        Oh lord, I soooooo agree with you here. I want some real connection with what came after those events that helped shape Angel emotionally rather then (as you say) 'Look at me Ma, I'm in a Tank!"
