Spike: After the Fall
Author: Brian Lynch, Franco Urru
Genre: Graphic novel
Got it from: Library
Why I read it: Liked the Angel graphic novels
Poet, vampire, murderer, lover, hero, prisoner, slave-- Spike has been called a lot of things. But by the time this fight is over, he'll have one more name: Lord. Or "dust"-- maybe we'll just call him dust, considering how it seems things are going in his immediate future. But after enjoying this collection of the four-issue Spike: After the Fall series you'll be looking at the events of Angel: After the Fall in a whole new light, courtesy of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru!
This was a quick read (graphic novels usually are), but I laughed my way through the whole thing. Even if Spike was never a favorite character throughout the Buffy or Angel series, I sure enjoyed him here. He brings the funny. The artwork was good, story was great--definitely would recommend this to graphic novel fans, or even fans of the Buffy or Angel TV series.
