Just picked this up today and I thought it was a very good read. I was disappointed when we first learned it would be a Spotlight: Spike, but as Costa has shown, he can really get inside certain characters' heads when he wants to. The issue hints that Spike has some dark secrets, and his actions at the end certainly confirm some dark tendencies. Very interesting read, especially for anyone who doesn't like Spike, even since AHM. This issue doesn't make me like him by a long shot, but it does add some needed layers and fleshes out his character a bit more. I dig Saltares's art. His humans are slightly reminiscent of Don's, but less cartoony I think. While the facial expressions might be exaggerated, I thought they were still well done. Great read.
