"Earthly Possessions" is a trade paperback collecting issues five to seven of the Angel comic book series.
Angel attempted to drive a demon out of a possessed lawyer; Father Noe was an excommunicated priest- apparently cut off from the church because he refused to play along with the popular line that possessions as depicted in The Exorcist were fictional- who gaves him a hand. Noe seemed to hold expert knowledge on removing demonic forces. He was known to some as "The Exorcist to the Stars", but Angel became suspicious that there was more to his success. The team's investigations were temporarily put on hold by Doyle's death, but a subsequent encounter with a possessed actress prompted Angel to note a comment the demon made that suggested previous contact with Noe. Using one of Doyle's old contacts, Angel learnt that Noe was excommunicated for practising dark magic rather than for exorcisms, the subsequent discovery that he was previously acquainted with both of the people he exorcised the demons from allowing Angel and Cordelia to deduce that Noe was summoning the demons as well as exorcising them. Using a mystical sword enchanted for this purpose, Angel managed to vanquish Noe's demonically-summoned bodyguards, subsequently enlisting Harry to help exorcise the remaining spirits, although Noe managed to escape to England.
