Hunting Ground is the third trade paperback of Angel, collecting issues eight to nine of the comic book series, as well as Lovely, Dark and Deep. It was originally published on August 29, 2001 by Dark Horse Comics.
There's a killer tossing dead bodies out of L.A. sewers like hot potatoes, and all the evidence points Detective Kate Lockley towards one man: a certain vampire named Angel. But Angel knows there are a lot more monsters in L.A — he just doesn't know which one's trying to set him up. In "Lovely, Dark, and Deep" (from Dark Horse Presents, colored by Matt Hollingsworth) Cordelia lands the starring role in a Blair Witch rip-off about three filmmakers searching for the legendary Helm of Haraxis. But what she doesn't know is that the film is a sham and the Helm's the real thing. Angel, who smelled a rat from the beginning, has to rescue Cordelia and her fellow filmmakers from a cabal of Hollywood demons and angry forest spirits, who all want to keep the Helm of Haraxis and the power it gives them.
