From 2007--2011, Creator/IDWPublishing published a series of tie-in comics based on ''Series/{{Angel}}''. The first arc, ''Angel: After the Fall'', picks up in the aftermath of the last episode of the TV Series. ''After the Fall'' was penned by series creator Creator/JossWhedon and is considered canon to the Franchise/{{Buffyverse}}. Everything else is more up for debate as ''Season 8'' comics show what happened with Angel right after L.A. is restored to normalcy by the Senior Partners.

This page is intended to cover all ''Angel'' and ''Spike'' comics between "After the Fall, Part One" and "Stranger Things", inclusive; for the subsequent Creator/DarkHorseComics series, see ''ComicBook/AngelAndFaith''. Also, keep in mind that spoilers from the televised Buffyverse are not tagged.
