Wesley and Illyria reunited? So it appears. But then, nothing is at it seems in Angel: Old Friends. Angel learns that he can't even trust his own eyes, and the situation in Los Angeles-grim to begin with-takes on a new and desperate hopelessness. Written by Angel novelist and comics writer Jeff Mariotte (Angel: The Curse) with full art and colors once again provided by David Messina (Angel: The Curse).
