Peter David announces new Spike comic. Peter David is set to follow up his Spike one-shot with a Spike Vs. Dracula miniseries to be released next year.

How very cool...maybe now we'll start getting more Spike comics. Just wish we could get some future Spike stories though, but still, this is great news. Now if they are smart they better PRINT enough copies this time !!!!!!
This sounds absolutely mad, can't wait to read it. I'm wondering if we'll see a reference to 'Why We Fight'/'1943' in it.
Present or future Spike would be good, but I've got to say I like the sound of this one.

Simon Maybe Hitler was at the Free Virgin Blood Party.

Ed Wood. Yay!
I do think this one sounds like a good one. I wondered why Dracula owed Spike money.
The only thing better than more Spike comics is more Spike comics written by PAD!!!
Great news. I loved 'Old Times' and was hoping that PAD would do another Spike story at some point - lynnie, you could well be right !
Peter David is excellent.
Hmmm. I loved Buffy's Dracula episode, but this one...
Anywho, we know Spike was a Nazi so this actually could be good. I'll get it. But I'm not buying anymore variant covers unless Joss' name is on the front.
More Spike is always good. I hope he goes with a different artist though. Maybe the guy doing the Angel comics. He's a bit stiff and sometimes it's hard to follow, but otherwise he's decent.

Spike wasn't a Nazi! He just ate one and likes the coat...
I bet Adolf is revealed as a demon in the book.
Ooops! Served with the Nazis? Or something like that. I've actually only seen that episode once. I didn't mean he WAS one. Sorry about that. I just meant he was hanging out during WWII -- a plot twist I greately enjoyed.

Are you sure you didn't just watch the trailer?;-) Nope, he didn't 'serve' with the Naizs either. He'd gotten kidnapped by Nazis who wanted to experiment with vampires. So he and some other vamps killed a bunch of them.

As for this comic, eh, I was let down by PAD's first one, (certainly by the art) and I could do without the constant Bela Lugosi references but the story of Spike and Dracula is an excellent choice of topic so here's hoping.
Spike has a thing for black leather ;0) and so when he ate one of his vampnappers he kept the coat. That's all.

With regard to future Spike comics, if they want to avoid doing any post NFA stories they can still do ones of him souled during S5 of ATS. I'd love to know what he got up to away from W&H. There would be plenty of stories of how he was helping the helpless, and listening to the Sex Pistols, while the others were working for Evil Inc.

Therefore, not post NFA but with a souled Spike. Two birds, one stone.

Maybe a scene or two in Accounts Receivable's poker games. :0)
I was looking hard at Drusilla -- Bela Lugosi -- Ed Wood enumeration until saw a droll pattern: in the movie "Ed Wood" actor Bela Lugosi has been played by Martin Landau, Juliet's father.
Juliet Landau was also in Ed Wood, as I recall.

I'd like to see the bit where he apparently rescued some gals and asked if they wanted to get some 'hooch' and listen to music, hehe....

That would be great! Someone should suggest that to PAD ... oh, hell ... I'll do it!
