Spike is never better when written and drawn by the team of Lynch and Urru, so if you want this but can't get it, fear not as it will be included as part of a forthcoming Spike Omnibus.

"Spike, Asylum" is targeted for the more mature fans, unlike the several paperbacks on the market, a fact that I find mildly ironic. But that has little to do with an assessment of this story.
The story consists of the results of our hero infiltrating a demon asylum in search of a missing girl' The inmates both know and hate Spike, which provides the excuse for all the action contained between these two covers.
The writing and artwork are adequate, and the title character reacts to his surroundings much the way as the one created by James Marsters, and there are quite a few inside jokes scattered throughout the story to make it a fun read for dyed in the wool Buffy fans, though those not familiar with the "Buffy," and "Angel" series may be somewhat lost. Keep that in mind when buying and reading this story, and you won't be disapointed.
I liked little touches such as a nod to the Gentlemen from BtVS S4 and some of the references to times past (particularly the eyepatched smartass). I think the thing that made the comic enjoyable is that I there's a sense that Lynch really enjoys writing for this character.
The storyline itself definitely casts Spike as a hero who, however reluctantly embarking on this mission, nonetheless quickly develops a sense of responsibility about the people he encounters and what he feels needs to be done in the demon asylum. It's also nice to get a cameo appearance from Lorne, who Lynch will later pair (to great effect) with Spike in Shadow Puppets. The artwork is also quite good and serves the story well.
