Synopsis[]

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![1]
