Beautiful book, fun read 8 septembre 2006
Par J. Nygren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a Spike fan, I'm always on the lookout for new stories with Spike, but as a rule I avoid graphic novels (or as they used to be called, comics) because I usually find the drawings bare little resemblence to the people they are supposed to represent. I was thrilled with this Spike graphic novel, as the pictures do look like the actors - they are some of the best graphics as I've seen, with most of them very photorealistic.

Besides the graphics, I also really enjoyed the stories. The first story takes place in Season Six BTVS, after Buffy's birthday party. "Old Times" brings Halfrek and Spike together with an explanation on how they know each other, and some closure for Spike. The next 2 stories takes place in ATS season 5, after Spike has become corporealized and before Fred becomes Illyria. "Old Wounds" flashbacks to Spike in LA in 1947 to solve a present day murder, while "Lost and Found" brings Angel and Spike together on a quest to find a second "Gem of Amarra" ring. I found the stories entertaining and enjoyable, with the personality of each character accurately portrayed. The collection of stories is printed on glossy, high quality paper, and there is a classic Spike photo at the start of each story. I would consider it a must have for any Spike fan.

Good stories, but disappointing art 31 octobre 2008
Par Mariet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As the title of my review shows, I have mixed feelings about this Spike comic book. In a nutshell, I liked the stories but not the art (at least not half as much as I had hoped I would).

After having seen some Spike comic books where the "hero" (well, protagonist) hardly bore any physical resemblance to Spike as we know him from the Buffy TV series, I was really looking forward to the "photo-realistic" art of this one. The cover really looked promising in this respect. However, when I read it I was disappointed. Not because the art is not photo-realistic or because Spike doesn't look like James Marsters - it is and he does, on 95% of the panels at least - but because it is a bit TOO "realistic". It is clear to see that the procedure followed by the artist was simply to paint over Buffy / Angel vidcaps that showed Spike in some position appropriate for the story. Many of the shots that were used are very easy to recognize, for example in the story "Lost & Found" that has Angel visiting Spike in his apartment while he is playing a video game. The entire scene is based on vidcaps from the Angel episode "You're welcome", when Lindsey visits Spike. The images have been copied in every detail, except that Lindsey has been replaced with Angel in some of the panels. I don't like this; it just feels like a cheap trick. I would much prefer to see original art. Also, the limitations of the procedure are clear. In cases where the artist had no full example to copy, the art clearly deteriorates. For example, in the post-WW2 flashback scenes in "Old Wounds", Spike's face and body look like they don't belong together at all (which is of course due to the fact that no vidcaps of Spike in a contemporary suit were available, so his face had to be "glued on").

On the positive side, I did like the stories, in particular the first and the last one. "Old Times" gave a satisfying closure to Spike's history with Cecily/Halfrek; I particularly liked the twist at the end. The only thing I didn't find very believable about this story is that Spike would leave Sunnydale and travel to LA in the middle of his relationship with Buffy in Season 6, but that's a very minor detail. "Lost & Found" I liked, among other things, because of the interaction between Spike and Harmony (the "e-Pay" thing was just hilarious) and because of the end, which showed that Spike really had come a long way since "In the Dark", the Angel episode referenced in this story.
Features one of the best Angel-Spike stories... 31 mai 2008
Par Sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This graphic novel collects 3 previously published stories, "Spike: Old Times" by Peter David, and "Spike: Old Wounds" and "Spike: Lost and Found" by Scott Tipton. The art in each of the stories is by Fernando Goni. All of the stories are set during Angel: The Series. Spike is living in Los Angeles as a vampire with a soul. If you found his portrayal on A:TS a bit lacking, I think you might enjoy this book more.

First of all, the artwork is superb. There is nothing worse than reading a Spike comic that draws Spike ugly or as having little or no resemblance to James Marsters. Fear not, Goni's artwork is painstakingly accurate to ALL the actors from the series. Some of the expressions that he gives Spike seem straight out of BTVS, like choices that James Marsters would actually make as an actor.

The first story, "Spike: Old Times," pits Spike against the Vengeance Demon Halfrek, who used to be Cecily, the woman that Spike once loved and wrote "bloody awful poetry" for back when he was the human William. Cecily once told Spike he was "beneath her". This is an amusing little revenge tale for Spike.

The second story is "Spike: Old Wounds". Spike teams up with Fred to prove his innocence in a gruesome murder from decades past. We get to see a lot of Spike's backstory here from his Bad Boy days. More importantly, perhaps, we see his relationship with Fred, and conversely, the lack of trust he receives from the rest of the "Fang Gang".

The final story is also the best, and the most compelling reason that I am recommending this volume. It is "Spike: Lost and Found," and it reads like the best episode of Angel never made. In Angel Season 1, Spike guest-starred in an episode where he goes to LA to steal the Gem of Amarra from Angel, a magical ring that makes the vampire who wears it indestructible and impervious to sunlight, crosses, stakes, etc.

"Lost and Found" is like a sequel to that episode. Complete with humorous flashback to Spike's short-lived relationship with Harmony, we discover that, unbeknownst to Spike, there were actually TWO Gems of Amarra. Now a vampire has his hands on the Gem, and is using it to commit murders in broad daylight. It's up to Spike and Angel to find the vamp and take back the Gem.

The best thing I can say about this story is that it does read like an actual quality episode of Buffy or Angel. The characterization, plot, and humor are all there. The interaction between Angel and Spike is brilliant, and possibly better than anything we saw in Angel Season 5. The story, besides having a good plot, is all about the CHARACTERS and the tension and guilt between Spike and Angel. Fighting against a vampire with the Gem of Amarra reminds Spike of the vampire he used to be, and also of the torture he had inflicted upon Angel when he was after the Gem.

Perhaps the best part of the story is the ending. The question is, if Spike regains the Gem, this time what does he do with it? Does he use it to become invincible, does he use it for his own selfish purposes (such as visiting Buffy), or can he make the same choice Angel once made, and destroy it? Exactly how much has Spike grown and changed since his earliest days on BTVS?

Fascinating read, excellent dialogue. Scott Tipton treats these characters well, and you'll thank him for it!

This volume of stories portrays Spike as a Good Guy and a Hero, without watering down his snarky attitude or Bad Boy persona. Highly recommended for all Spike fans.

Beautiful to look at, fun to read. 1 septembre 2006

The first story, Old Times, is fantastic. It gives us the satisfaction of seeing Spike get a little of his back. The characters were written true aside from the fact that this is definately post=Buffy, and we all know that Halfrek, the vengence demon died in season 7. But that really doesn't matter because the story was just too satisfying to worry about it. Old Wounds and Lost and Found are also well done. Both writting and Artwork are great throughout the book. Well worth the time, and if you are an Angel/Buffy fan, it is a must have.
Spike - the graphic novel that didn't quite make it for me 11 janvier 2009
Par Todd R. Jordan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Spike, the graphic novel, could have been a solid four star book or maybe even a five.
The graphics are fantastic. In most places they are presented well, but beyond that they drawings of Angel and Spike turned out quite well. Really enjoyable visually.

The stories though, kinda odd bits. One a bit on its own and seemingly pointless. The other two very loosely tied together.

I did feel that the authors capture Spike's personality well though, and his appetites. Of course, there was more action than dialogue that added value.

Bonus to me were the extra photos and drawings included in the book. The materials are solid and slick, and a welcome addition to a graphic novel library.

Looking forward to more Spike books.
