In the Spike Omnibus you will find the following comic series collected and put together for you in one place for your reading enjoyment.

Spike: Old Times
In this story Spike meets Halfrek in a local Bar and after catching up with her discovers that she is there on a vengeance job. Spike decides he’s going to do everything he can to help her target survive his 30th birthday, which no other male in his family has been able to do.

Spike: Old Wounds
Fred is abducted on her way into work one morning, and her abductor is a retired police detective who is using her to gain access into Wolf, Ram & Heart to see Angel. The detective can’t rest until he has solved the Black Dahlia murder and he has his suspicions that the murderer was Spike, since he was in the area the time it occurred. Spike insists he’s innocent and teams up with Fred to prove it.

Spike: Lost & Found
There is a Vampire on a killing spree but the unusual thing about it is the crimes are happening in broad daylight. Angel gets Spike to think back about the time he had the Gem of Amarra, and it turns out there was more than one Gem and Harmony had sold the second one on e-bay for some cash. The team has to work together to bring down the Vamp.

Spike vs. Dracula
This series tells the story of the long standing battle and hatred between Dracula and Spike, and how Dracula came to owe Spike eleven quid.
Some of the illustrations in this series where okay, but some were just dreadful. In some of them I had to really double check back on dialogue to figure out who the character was supposed to be as they looked nothing like Dru or Spike. Horrible!


Spike: Asylum
I really enjoyed this story.
Spike is enlisted to find the daughter of a rich couple who has just found out she’s half daemon and has gone and checked herself into a clinic for daemons looking for a cure. When her parents receive a phone call from their daughter telling them she’s okay while sending them subliminal messages that she needs help because she can’t leave, they decide they will stop at nothing to get their daughter back.
Spike checks himself into the clinic and finds he’s gotten in way over his head. Once you’re in you can’t get out. Now he’s on the inside, can’t seem to find the girl and he’s in deep trouble as his fellow inmates are not too happy he’s there with them.


Spike: Shadow Puppets
Well Angel had his turn as a puppet so it’s only fair that Spike get’s his. He does look so cute as a peroxide puppet in black leather, I think I want one.
Smile Time is back and they have moved to Japan. With the help of Lorne, Spike is on his way there to shut them down. Smile Time is ready for him though, and after battling Angel they have learnt from the experience and have some new tricks up their sleeve. They have also decided that it’s time they go global. 
