Spike comics refer to the meta-series title published by IDW Publishing, as well as publications from Dark Horse Comics in which Spike is the title character.


These first comics were stories published in 1999 under the “Spike and Dru” title, as Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic spin-offs.

When IDW Publishing got the Angel license in 2005, they started putting out Spike titles of their own, including a main series. These comic books used a logo based on the Angel’s typeface.

In 2011, the license moved back to Dark Horse Comics, creating a new logo for the character. Their first Spike comic was published in 2012 as a Season Nine spin-off, and finally a solo Spike graphic novel.
