SPIKE: INTO THE LIGHT (James Masters / Derlis Santacruz)

En conclusion du deuxième numéro de Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season 10, le responsable éditorial Scott Allie a dévoilé la couverture et les premières images du “Roman Graphique” Spike: Into the Light scénarisé par nul autre que son interprète, l’acteur James Masters, et illustré par Derlis Santacruz.

L’histoire ramènera notre héros aux évènements de la saison 7. S’étant racheté une conduite à l’aide de son âme nouvellement gagnée, Spike tente de faire amande honorable jusqu’au jour où il tombe sur une paire de grolles qui lui plaisent.

Spike: Into the Light sortira le 16 juillet 2014.

[quote=“James Masters”]The story that i had started years ago. Joss called me up and wanted to know if we could do a TV movie on Spike," said Marsters. “I said, ‘Man, I’ll do anything that you want to do. What do you got?’ and he said, 'I’ve got no ideas at all. I’ve got a line from a movie. … From ‘Lord of the Rings,’ something about ‘I have no hope for myself, but I have hope for you people’ before he goes off to war. I’m like, ‘Well, that’s very serious, Joss.’ And he said, ‘Well, what do you got?’ ‘Well, actually, I have this idea.’ I wanted Spike to proactively have a plan and implement it. As a secondary character, you’re mostly reacting to other people’s plans. That’s your job and that’s fine, but I thought it’d be fun to have Spike wake up in the morning and say, ‘I want this’ and go out and get it. I thought it would be cheesy if he accomplished anything too large, so I thought he should accomplish the smallest thing I could think of. I had an idea that Spike, having just gotten his soul and just broken up with Buffy, that he would be having a hard time surviving because he can’t really mug anybody for what he needs and he will not get a job. He’s homeless, he’s starving to death, his clothes are falling apart, and his boot is so mangled that he’s almost losing fights because the sole is flapping around. What if there’s a story where he loses the girl, he loses the fight to the monster, he tries to play hero, he gets his butt kicked, but he does find a way to get a new pair of boots without hurting anybody, without stealing them and without getting a job.”

"Joss said, ‘That’s a wonderful idea. That’s cheap to film!’[/quote]
