Spike: After the Fall released in February and follows the vampire, Spike, through his first few months in hell. Congratulations to Brian Lynch (w) and Franco Urru (a&c)!
novel adaptation of the classic Jungle Book story has made
the list in its first full week on sale! Writer Jean-Blaise
Mitildjian and artist TieKo bring Rudyard Kipling's original tale
to life in a whole new way. Congrats!
Here's what the NYTimes had to say about Spike: "Fans of the 'Buffy the Vampire' television show know that they can turn to the comic book series published by Dark Horse to know what would've happened next in her life. If the adventures of Angel and Spike, two of her vampire friends, are more your cup of tea, you can turn to Spike: After the Fall, which picks up threads from the final season of the "Angel" television show."
