Sneak Peak at cover for Spike: Shadow Puppets:
Cover

I've really been enjoying this Spike series by Brian Lynch. So, while I'm anxiously anticipating seeing how Spike gets out of this mess, I'm also sad that it will be the last issue.

Saje, I also would like to see Brian's comments included in the upcoming TPB. Brian, are there any hints you can offer us?

OMG!!! I can hardly stand it!! Last week C Barkers Great & Secret Show came out and I was waiting to go to the comic book shop when something else came out and now on 2/7 there is not only S Kings Dark Tower, but also Spike: Asylum (final issue *sniff*) and Auld Lang Syne all on the same day!! How can I sleep tonite?!? Life is good.
OMG cover number 2 of Angel! Could that be any slashier!!!

Loving Spike Asylum, and I will be dreading it's end. It's been one hell of a great ride!!
Will be picking them both up later this week.Chris Ryall over at the IDW board just posted that they are preparing the next Angel centric comic with big plans for it but he can't talk about it yet other then it's coming later in the year and they are working on the details.

So more will be coming after Angel:Auld Lang Syne and Spike:Shadow Puppets.
Big decision. Which one shall I read first ! Asylum #5 looks awesome, so does Auld Lang Syne #4. This will be a wonderful dilemma.
Cool, mentioned in the post blurb. Makes me feel slightly less totally evil for never having posted a link (ahh, moderately totally evil, how i've aspired to your heady moral heights ;).

Looking through my TBR pile it seems like i've somehow contrived to miss Angel: Auld Lang Syne #3. Must remedy that.
Hey hi! The collected ASYLUM will, I do believe, have all my notes and stuff from my myspace/whedonesque board/idw board postings. I love when collected editions have text and so forth in the back, so I'm very happy.

And though ASYLUM is ending, keep in mind, AULD ANG SYNE is going strong, and Spike and Lorne return in SHADOW PUPPETS in June, so you won't go without ANGEL goodness.
Just don't wait too long before supplying me with my much needed Spike fix. Thanks!!!!
Spike Asylum and Angel: Auld Lang Syne have been my two favourite mini-series so far and I can't wait to see how Spike Aylum finishes. I'm also glad to hear there's another Angel comic in the works for after Auld Lang Syne finishes.
Also out this week is the trade paperback of Buffy artist Georges Jeanty's last project, 'The American Way.' It got pretty rave reviews when the issues were coming out, so I'm looking forward too it.
Brian...we can't thank you enough for all the wonderfull Spike goodness. I have enjoyed Spike Asylum VERY much...am a little sad to see it end...but Auld Lange Syne is good too...love the boys together...they're so darn cute when they bicker.

Looking forward to the Spike and Loren story...wee little puppet men...heeeee. That should be awesome.

Please tell us that there will be more Spike in the future. I know I sound greedy and probably very uhmmmm needy.....but I just can't get enough of the guy.
The collected ASYLUM will, I do believe, have all my notes and stuff from my myspace/whedonesque board/idw board postings. I love when collected editions have text and so forth in the back, so I'm very happy.

I'd hoped that'd be the case Brian, cheers for letting us know. I'm also a fan of added text as well as art, it's kinda like the same insights into the writer's process as sketches give for the artist's (as with the back of 'Fell' where Warren Ellis adds script snippets and the - usually very depressing - newspaper stories that inspired him etc. though obviously more for budgetary reasons in that instance). Sometimes i'd almost rather have that than another 2-4 pgs of comic.

('collected ASYLUM' has a nice ring to it, BTW. Who knows, maybe one day we'll be looking forward to the forthcoming 'Absolute ASYLUM' ? Presumably with the usual 'Ultimate' in between ;).

'The American Way' sounds pretty interesting Telltale, might well have a look (and it'll give a better idea of what Jeanty can do with full panels etc. for the extremely spoiler averse. *shuffles feet, looks shifty* Those maniacs ;)
(as with the back of 'Fell' where Warren Ellis adds script snippets and the - usually very depressing - newspaper stories that inspired him etc. though obviously more for budgetary reasons in that instance)

Last issue of Fell that came out, I finished reading that shaking my head at how twisted Warren was for writing that story. Reading in the back matter that it was based on a true incident left me slightly nauseous. Great that there's a comic that can do that to me, but man do we live in a twisted world. New issue out this week, too!


And also a thanks to Brian from me. Look forward to any extras.
Oh Jeez, agreed Telltale. You know sometimes you get that feeling of 'species pride' when you hear about one of us doing something really cool or heroic like saving a child or sacrificing themselves for their friend ? Well, reading about that news story was the complete opposite of one of those moments. Disgusting in every way.
Does anyone know if the 'Angel: Auld Lang Syne' series will be available in some kind of omnibus edition when it ends? Comic book series do eventually end, don't they? I would love to have/read the whole thing, but I have no patience for trying to hunt down individual issues.
'Auld Lang Syne' is a miniseries, yeah. And IDW has been collecting them all so far...
I'm on my way to get my haircut and then pick up these comics (the comic store is a convenient 3 blocks from my hairdresser). I can't wait to read them.

This thread probably will fall off the front page soon. I'd really like to hear what everyone thought of Spike: Asylum, the whole series. Maybe you can comment on the thread over at whedonesque.org once this is off the front page.
