Asylum, Part Five is the fifth and final issue of the Spike: Asylum comic book miniseries. Written by Brian Lynch and illustrated by Franco Urru, it was originally published on February 7, 2007 by IDW Publishing.
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!
