This review is from: Spike Omnibus (Paperback)
This is a very large volume of Spike graphic novels, which is most notable for containing the two cult classics Asylum and Shadow Puppets - both of which are now considered official cannon episodes of the Angel universe - but also contains four other stories that link in to various characters and stories from the Buffy / Angel TV series. One of these four stories is in fact five stories in itself - all concerning Spike's various run ins with the hilariously self-important Wheedon take on Dracula. Not only do they fill in some of the missing time periods in Spike's long life, only glimpsed at before, but they are incredibly funny and Spike's distinctive dialogue and attitude are spot on - it's what makes him such an incredibly apt character for the transition to graphic novels. Asylum is where Spike really starts to hit his stride though, and it's no surprise you can't get the originals now for love nor money.
