Crown Prince Syndrome is the eighth volume of the Angel hardcovers, collecting issues thirty-three to thirty-eight of the comic book series. It was originally published December 1, 2010, by IDW Publishing.


Angel is back righting wrongs, but quickly discovers that one of the crew is not at all what he seems. When it's revealed that James is not only not an angel, but has demon farming plans for L.A., Angel must stop him. Except that Connor goes missing, Spike may not have a soul, and the demon warrior women may have something to do with at least some of it.[1]
