4.0 out of 5 stars A very bright and cheerful story, 19 May 2014
This review is from: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike - A Dark Place (Paperback)
The 5-issue dark Horse Comics' `Spike' mini-series `A Dark Place' is collected as Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike - A Dark Place. We are told that it takes place after issue #10 of Buffy Season 9 (which I haven't read). It is an excellently written and illustrated story that takes Spike and the Bugs from moping about Buffy (just Spike doing that, not the Bugs) on the Far Side of the Moon, which coincidentally happens to be the Dark Side of the Moon when this story takes place (but could comic-book writers please read up on the difference for future stories). Anyway, there are some stranded demons there, who want to go home, and so hijack the ship and crew to go to Sunnydale crater to look for shards of the Seed (destroyed at the end of Buffy Season 8) to use to reopen the Hellmouth. That leads on to more and more complicated adventures that bring Spike out of his moping, until at the climax of the story, he is able to go about his heroic business over in [spoiler].

This is a very entertaining story that has nothing much to do with the rest of the Buffyverse, but there is a great frog-monster, and the Bugs get to share, if not dominate, the story, before making their exit from the storyline, and Spike goes back to the regularly-scheduled series.
