Following the events of “Spike: A Dark Place” #1, lovesick Spike is on his way back from the dark side of the moon and headed straight to Sunnydale with his crew of oversized alien-cockroach minions, and stranded demons. Returning to the place he helped the girl he’s hung-up on destroying might not be the best cure for Buffy heartache. Or perhaps, facing his troubles in the hometown where it all began is what this mopey vampire needs to finally move on. READ MORE
Dark Horse Comics delivers more Buffy the Vampire Slayer goodness with a new five-part mini-series starring Spike. Who better to write it than Spike fanboy himself, Victor Gischler? Taking a fan favourite like Spike and giving him his own adventure away from the BuffyVerse is very risqué, but it proves to be a great choice for the brooding vamp.
The once terrifying vampire villain, “William the Bloody”, who relished in the murders of two slayers, falls in love with Buffy Summers; which, ultimately, leads him to fight to regain his soul… Intense stuff. The last time Buffy and Spike were together, he told her: “I don’t want to be the dark place you run to when things aren’t working.” Gischler, along with artist Paul Lee, work that concept cleverly into the miniseries. As the title, “A Dark Place”, suggests, Spike embarks on a journey to the dark side of the moon… Literally.
Eight strangers with no memories find themselves trapped in an abandoned facility. As they desperately try to find answers and escape, their own Shadows attempt to consume them from the darkness.
