While created as part of licensed material, the comic mini-series Fallen Angel: Reborn is a crossover with IDW's Fallen Angel. It has not been confirmed as part of the "real" Buffyverse.
It consisted of 4 issues in which Illyria tried to find her icons to restore her powers, with the presence of Liandra, whose intention to help or stop her was not always clear.
The writer Peter David, said: "The story is set early in Illyria's involvement with Angel & Co. Having been deprived of her power by Wesley, she is drawn to Bete Noire as a potential source for not only becoming what she was before, but even achieving her previous status. Remember, what we see of her in Angel is not her true appearance."
