One of my absolute favorite things about “BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER” and “ANGEL” to me has always been the frosty-haired hardass Spike played to perfection by the ever talented James Marsters. (Dragonball Not Withstanding) There have been many occasions when I have sat and thought ‘Ya know, I really wish he had his own series. I’d totally buy that.’ and I wont lie when I say I was really bummed when the rumored “SPIKE” television show was nixed by the CW. Well for those that are as big a fan of the vamp as myself you will be pleased to hear that the character will be getting some much deserved face-time this June as IDW Publishing has announced plans for an all new monthly titled aptly, “SPIKE: THE DEVIL YOU KNOW”. Read on for all the details.
