Taking off from the hit TV show, this volume traces the evolution of two of the most deliciously devious villains to hit Sunnydale – William the Bloody, otherwise known as Spike, and the mad but oddly endearing Drusilla, the vampire Bonnie and Clyde of the Whedonverse. Moving from happier days at the 1939 World’s Fair to the dissolution of the relationship in heat- drenched Argentina, this volume contains all the wit, adventure, and horror Buffy fans have come to expect. The best aspect of these Buffy graphic novels is how they fill in what’s left out of the show’s story arcs, and often they are written by the writers of the show, and so the canon and sense of whimsy are all well maintained. The artwork here is especially beautiful and gothic, and it’s fascinating to see each artists’ take on these two demons and their world — especially considering recent happenings on the show.
