Ha, these comics are just so ridiculous now.
First off, I just wanna clarify that the "everyone remembering Hell-A" thing wasn't from Aftermath
, it was in After The Fall
, in the last two issues.
So now even things are plotted by Joss aren't canon.
(Also just wanna geekily point out that Aftermath was only the name of the 5 issue story after ATF, there were still 20+ issues after that.)
Again, the whole plots of both these comics, Dark Horse's Buffy and IDW's Angel, and now even the combined ones, are so convoluted as to be unreadable. I guess I may as well still pick them up, but I think in my head now I'm going back to Buffy the Vampire Slayer
ending with "Chosen" and Angel
ending with "Not Fade Away" and that's it. Its much easier
