Spike: Shadow Puppets #1
By: Brian Lynch & Franco Urro
Covers by: Franco Urro & David Messina

Angel once put a stop to an evil children's show, but not before being turned into a puppet during his fight. Now, fresh out of the Asylum, it's Spike's turn! Writer Brian Lynch and artist Franco Urru reunite for a miniseries that sees Spike and Lorne heading off to Japan to stop the latest Japanese kids' show... Smile Time! Will they become "puppetized" themselves? And along the way, find themselves in a fight with hundreds of ninja-puppets, reuniting with fellow Asylum inmates, and be at extreme odds with one other? We're not telling (but, um, yes)!

Spike: Shadow Puppets #2
By: Brian Lynch & Franco Urro
Covers by: Franco Urro & David Messina

The evil puppets of Smile Time are back and taking over Japan and Spike is going to bring them down. All that stands in his way are thousands of puppet ninjas. Fists will fly, cotton will spill. But Smile Time isn't going down that easy... and by the end of the issue, Spike's going to have more in common with the evil puppets than he thought possible. That's right, Spike goes through the big change, courtesy of the Spike: Asylum team of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru!

Covers by: Franco Urro & David Messina

Well, now they did it. Smile Time has turned Spike into a puppet. But if they think that's gonna stop him, they don't know Spike. Half as tall. Twice as mad. Five times as adorable. It's wall-to-wall, puppet vs. puppet, hard-hitting action courtesy of the Spike: Asylum team of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru!

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!
