Spike is one of the most popular characters in the Buffyverse, and the new mini-series debuting on Wednesday sounds like it’s gonna be a pretty wild ride! You Buffy fans might remember that news of this series came out after it was announced that the planned Drusilla series would be put on hold. At any rate, Buffy books have been very strong of late and this series, written by Victor Gischler, looks like it will keeps up the trend!
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER SPIKE #1 (OF 5)

Having fought to regain his soul after falling in love with the Slayer Buffy, the once-terrifying vampire villain Spike has been a bit less fearsome (to humans, at least). On his own adventure, Spike is forced to examine the man he once was, the man he is now, and the man he still hopes to become.
As master of a steampunk ship filled with loyal, oversized alien cockroaches, Spike embarks on a journey to the dark side of the moon, setting into motion an adventure filled with demons, witches, and others who brew new evil in the world without magic!
Dark Horse Comics’ Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike #1 comes out this Wednesday!
EDIT: Well, in the Dept. of You Never Know What’s Gonna Happen, we did not receive our copies of this one. Sorry to get your hopes up, but hopefully we’ll get them in next week!
