    How could I forgot that?!

    I say Buffy needs to learn how to drink elegantly.

    Continuing in mini review mode, how Spike is drawn seems to vary wildly from page to page. At times he almost looks bnbbutju u - excuse the cat, she wants to join in - his usual beautiful self, at others he remains recognisably Spike but rougher in depiction.
    But I love the artwork as a whole. And the tourist who lands the beetle in the opening sequence reminds me of something comedic that I can't put a name to.

    Alas no. But she reminds me so much of a character in a show I remember seeing years ago. It may or may not come back to me. Sorry. Irrelevant, as Seven of Nine would say. Also unhelpful.

    Chapter 2 What Happens in Vegas...

    Well, Spike has taken a beating and has no plan. He also doesn't know, yet, the forces he's up against. But that will change here.

    I like his face as he stares out at the nightscape.
    Poor Jeremy, he doesn't deserve to be possessed. Wasn't he just on his way to propose? I suppose that's what happens when the city you live in goes to Hell, literally.
    I like Beck's ripped jeans. Oh George - won't call him Betta anymore out of respect for our Betta - what a hoot, the Hellbutt!
    Wow so obvious The White Room would be a casino. Of course! Again Spike is flying by the seat of his trousers but he still manages the pithy one-liners.
    I really hope that rug is not the former conduit, as I'm partial to all kinds of cat, even evil ones.
    Ugh John.
    Something odd going on with Spike and John and not in a sexy way, could it be a Dru mind read?
    Again the emphasis is that human evil is the worst kind. John is a sterling example.
    Takes a LOT to scare Spike but the sight of Hellfire will do it. He should know.
    A very nasty thought occurs while I do this- could Spike be considered an employee of W & H? Could they exert some control over him?
    Yeah Groo and Dragon Cordy - if this had been onscreen I'd have been punching the air by now.
    You know what I am. You've always known. You come to me all the same.

    Chapter 3 Everybody loves Spike

    He best not mock me, Angel. He he Groo - dream on.
    Why do evil characters always tell the truth? Clean up is a bitch. The artwork is such fun and I love the dragon.
    Dru still gets bits of people stuck in her teeth and nails.
    George's comment about who are we to judge and Groo doing his flyby.
    Love Beck's declaration of faith and purpose. Dru looks strange here.
    And Spike grumbling about not being able to crow in triumph - priceless.
    Poor George, no wonder he's knocked out.
    And that last panel - love that burns and consumes. Beautiful picture.
    You know what I am. You've always known. You come to me all the same.
