Angel returns to Dark Horse

Dark Horse Comics has revealed that it has regained the rights to Angel.

The surprise announcement appeared in the back of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Riley one-shot, reports Robot 6.

Dark Horse senior managing editor Scott Allie teased "the return of the Angel series to Dark Horse in late 2011, in tandem with our Buffy Season 9 relaunch" in a column at the end of the issue.

Dark Horse published Angel comics from 2000 to 2002 before IDW Publishing acquired the rights in 2005. Its Angel title is still ongoing.

"We'll be addressing this soon, so please bear with us," wrote IDW publisher and editor-in-chief Chris Ryall posted on the publisher's official forum. "Thanks, for your patience and your support."

A conflict arose between the publishers in January when Angel appeared as a key player in the events of Buffy the Vampire Season 8.
