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.

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.
