"Auld Lang Syne, Part Five" was a comic story based on Angel. It was written by Scott Tipton and edited by Chris Ryall.

Angel has taken up his job in L.A. again, but is quickly faced by mysterious figures from his past, and they seem to be quite real. Similarly, Spike is faced by the ghosts of his pasts, and the two accidentally meet each other, placing the blame for the occurrence with the other. A fight ensues, but they soon discover that they are being manipulated and are forced to work together again. The culprit turns out to be a demon both men have wronged in the past, who hoped they would kill one another. Angel and Spike are able to defeat her however, and both go their own ways again. Features the IDW comics debuts of Skip, Holtz, The Master, Nikki Wood and the Chinese Slayer (Xin Rong).

The Story So Far

Angel and Spike have been manipulated and they don’t like it. Duped into nearly killing each other by Liltu, a mysterious mystical entity, the two are determined to find out who’s behind it and exact a little retribution. A slightly-less-than-smooth museum heist garnered them the relic they needed to take the battle to Lilitu, but upon their arrival to the other dimensional realm, they’re met with an unexpected “welcome mat”…


Angel and Spike have tracked down the culprit who's been tampering with their minds! Will they be able to free themselves from her influence? Or will Spike be too busy putting the moves on her? It all ends here!
