Spike Shadow Puppets by Lynch and Urru (GRADE: C+)
I've finished Spike: Shadow Puppets by Brian Lynch and Franco Urru. I grade this a C+.
I loved the Angel TV show. And I like Spike as a character. What I liked most about the show was the character development. And I wanted some more of that in these comics but alas, I was disappointed.
This comic is about Spike trying to thwart the plans of a group of demon puppets. The puppets were first introduced in Angel Season 5, episode 'Smile Time'. NOTE: Smile Time may be one of my favorite episodes in the Buffyverse.
Overall, the story was interesting enough but silly and campy at times (and not in a good way). I didn't mind reading it (it was pretty short), but I was hoping for something better. I grade this book a C+. Average/nothing special and at times entertaining.
