The Curse

Long Night's Journey was a comic book mini-series from Dark Horse Comics.


Angel was looking for a kidnapped child and stumbled upon huge powerful forces of evil. Angel fought some of the most threatening monsters around, including a vampire known as "Perfect Jheung" who had a surprising connection to Angel's past.


The story was set after "First Impressions", but before "Untouched".



The mini-series consisted of 4 issues, which were later collected in a single self-tiled trade paperback.

Behind the Scenes

  • Artist Mel Rubi also penned comics such as Witchblade, Aliens, Darkness, and Predator: Mindhunter.
  • Promoted as "Angel retooled and reinvented" by Dark Horse Comics, the storyline represents an attempt to make Angel a comic-book hero in a more traditional sense, battling against huge behemoths of monsters.
  • These were the final Angel comics until IDW Publishing began publishing them in 2005.
  • The title is presumably intended to evoke Long Day's Journey into Night, the classic drama by Eugene O'Neill.
