IDW Publishing has announced that Spike is getting a new monthly ongoing series beginning in October.  Brian Lynch and Franco Urru will return with a tale that explains Spikes appearance in Buffy #35.

Spike’s first solo series will be his biggest adventure yet, jam packed with battles, action and romance, and explain how he ended up covered in bugs in Buffy. Spike will feature appearances by Angel, Illyria, plus a special guest appearance by Willow! And what vampire adventure would be complete without a villain? This time, a familiar face from the past will arrive, looking to destroy Spike’s future.

“With Brian and Franco back on Spike we’re going to see some incredibly important leaps for the character,” said editor Mariah Huehner in a prepared statement. “Brian’s outline for this series actually shocked me, in a really good way, with where he wants to take the character. It’s ambitious, important, and truly epic.”

Spike #1 has a cover price of $3.99.

  1. While I’m happy that Spike is getting a comic of his own, I’m still more interested in buying Dark Horse’s comic because it’s continuity.
