Doppelgangbang is the fourth and final issue of the Spike: Shadow Puppets comic book miniseries. Written by Brian Lynch and illustrated by Franco Urru, it was originally published on October 3, 2007 by IDW Publishing.

SynopsisEdit

He's been kicked, beaten, stabbed, blown up, and worst of all, turned into a puppet. Now Spike has to battle Smile Time for the fate of every child in Japan! But Smile Time has one more trick up their adorable, murderous felt-covered sleeves — puppet versions of ALL of Spike's friends and foes! It's a battle royale, puppet-style, courtesy of the Spike: Asylum team of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru! David Messina provides a variant cover, and Sean Galloway offers up a puppet-laden incentive cover, too![1]
