Synopsis[edit | edit source]
The inmates are running the asylum, and only one thing stands between them and freedom: a smart-ass vampire with a soul. Spike: Asylum ends with a bang — numerous bangs, in fact. And stabbings. And stakings. Fists will fly and heads will most definitely roll! Spike's latest adventure concludes, courtesy of screenwriter Brian Lynch and artist Franco Urru!
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- Spike mentions avenging Betta George, mystically killed by Saje in Asylum, Part Four. Although, the demon appears alive during the fall of Los Angeles, in After the Fall, Part One.
