4.0 out of 5 stars Good enhancment 1 July 2001
After writing mostly Fantasy-influenced stories with throlls, faeries and wizards which worked out good for him, Neil Gaiman takes a risk here with the further creation of a character who later turns out to be one of the most popular members of the cast of a superhero title according to many. I myself take quite some characters over her (Billy Kincaid, Violator, Jason Wynn) but as a character that's supposed to be the perfect opposite of the Hellspawn she's indeed a very satisfying new (at the time) character. Luckily most of the story stages in Heaven and Hell, places Gaiman is familiair with since he explored them many times over already and THAT shows. His writing is being aided by the art of Greg Capullo who I think started here in showing himself to be worthy to take up drawing Spawn after McFarlane. It's obviously NOT the perfected art Capullo shows of later when he gets to draw 'Spawn' yet though, to be honest. I don't have a specific word for it but it's showing that typical "Image-look' that most Image books had in their early days.
About the story: The Angelic warrior Angela is celebrating her 100.000th birthday in her own unique fashion when all of a sudden the Hordes of Heaven come to place her under arrest. She's being put on trial for treason and conspiring with a Hellspawn (See the events in Spawn #9 to see what happened), among other things. It soon becomes clear to most that she's being set up and her friends attempt to help her. In doing so they need to get Spawn from earth and take him to heaven un-noticed to testify for Angela, the woman who once tried to kill him.
This story takes place right after #10 and is really a very good enhancement to the early days of the ongoing Spawn series.

By Eli
This is a filler story between two of the main spawn books from about a decade ago, explains how spawn goes to heven, meets an angel, gets funky and somehow fails to develop as a character or learn from his experiences.
If you have the rest it's a good addition as the story does fill in blanks and if you like looking at drawings of improbably proportioned ladies then it's a winner.
It is by no means a classic though, also, being made by the same company who print well with good inks on nice paper but seem to not understand how to make a book that doesn't fall apart, Reading carefully and not being careless still yeilds after maybe the second read clumps of pages just falling out or becoming loose.
