Spike and Dru: The Queen of Hearts is a one-shot from Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series. Written by Christopher Golden and illustrated by Ryan Sook, it was originally published on October 13, 1999 by Dark Horse Comics.
When Joss Whedon saw the final copy of the first Spike and Dru, he said, “This is what the comic should look like every month!” We decided that called for a sequel. On their way to Sunnydale, the demonic duo stop off in sultry St. Louis, to try their hands at some riverboat gambling. They soon learn, however, that their rest and relaxation isn't quite as peaceful as they'd hoped!
