===Production===
Brian Lynch's ''Spike'' series is considered canon due to Joss Whedon's involvement and the fact that it ties into the "[[Twilight (story arc)|Twilight]]" and "[[Last Gleaming]]" story arcs of ''Season Eight''. Brian Lynch stated on a fan forum:
+
*The title is a parody of the television sitcom series ''[[wikipedia:Everybody Loves Raymond|Everybody Loves Raymond]]'' (1996–2005).
:”''Yes, it's canon, yes, it matters, and yes, it's the best SPIKE story I've told.''”<ref>http://slayaliveforums.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=spikeon&thread=11447&page=31#244990</ref>
 
IDW writer and editor [[Mariah Huehner]] reiterated this:
 
:''"Brian's [''Spike''] series will be "canon" and lead up to his bug ship story in ''Season 8''. And that's not all. So, fans needn't worry. They're going to get 8 amazing issues of ''Spike'' that'll show him as the hero he is.<ref>http://buffyfest.blogspot.com/2010/08/exclusive-interview-chris-ryall-and.html</ref>"''
