Mars Attack Spike variant cover revealed at New York Comic Con

Overall, the variant that maybe best embodies the spirit of the project is one Ryall didn’t expect to happen. “The one I was most surprised happened was that it was only a little over a year ago that the rights for ‘Angel’ went over to Dark Horse. That wasn’t necessarily something we wanted to see happen, so we thought we could have some fun with that and tweak both the fans and Dark Horse a bit if they’d allow us to do a ‘Mars Attacks Spike’ cover. And so we got Franco Urru who was our big artist on those properties to do the Spike cover. I’m glad Scott Allie at Dark Horse had a good sense of humor about this, and we go to do one last cover with Spike where the Martian is about to crush a bug that Spike’s hanging around with in ‘Buffy.’ It’s all about, ‘How much fun can we have with this thing?’” (X)
