The cover and interior artwork is done extremely well and in true classic spawn style, and in and of itself could be something that you can just enjoy just looking at the artwork. It was eye pleasing and eye catching at the same time making it a visual pleasure!

The story itself holds just as much weight as the artwork, while not visually stunning, it does keep the reader’s attention and makes them seek more. While I myself am not a big fan of spawn I do enjoy a good story, and I rate this among them.  The story while spawn based does feel a little like a suicide squad story of sorts, since the main Spawn leaves the group to their own devices until the last minute.

While my knowledge of the spawn is limited, this particular story makes me want to follow this book series just to see how it turns out at the end of the arc!  When the artwork and the story does that, the book itself becomes a treasure that is worth reading!  This is definitely going to be a heavy contender for my follow list!

Growing up in the 80s and 90s I grew up as an eclectic geek, a fact that still holds true today. I grew up watching all the classic cartoons of the 80's and had many an adventures with the toys that went with. Played tabletop RPG's and still enjoy computer gaming as adulting allows. On top of making time to read comics, and spend time with family and friends.
