This huge compendium collects the first 50 issues of spawn by Todd Mcfarlane. They have been reprinted in black and white, which might put some people off but I advise you not to be. Even though there is no colour it is the amazing artwork and the story which stands out. I am a fan of the walking dead which is also in black and white and that is still an amazing comic. I have never read spawn so I decided to buy this compendium which is a lot cheaper tham buying all the other collections individually. The story of how soldier Al Simmons is killed by a member of his own team and ends up in hell, where a demon tricks him into being one of his soldiers, a hellspawn blew me away and I was kept hooked all the way through. I can't wait for the next one!.

I love the black and white artwork, love reliving the early 90s. It's a great book for the price. Worth it for Spawn and McFarlane fans.

Format: Paperback
Spawn was the first "adult" comic book I picked up after a lifetime of spidey and 2000ad ,then I found this, a dark tale of a man murdered and selling his soul to a devil for one chance to see his wife again...at first it plays like batman if he had no morals and only gets better weaving a tale of cia and mafia plots whilst exploring a unique take on the classic good vs evil god vs the devil ...
Spawn is a classic anti-hero up against such monstrosities such as the clown,a short fat clown in bright blue make up who shows his true form the wonderfully designed violator a true denizen of hell who is supposed to be training spawn but wants to discredit him so the "boss" will stop using humans as generals in his army...to a mafia don (renamed for this collection following a lengthy court battle) to a child-killing paedophile who uses a child's fingers as a collage whilst wearing her scalp a reminder that this aint a book for younger readers as it does explore the darker side of the world ...
there are some weak points in this collection the "simmonsville" arc being the main one with Jason wynn creating a town over a portal to hell out of al simmons' (spawn) memories the art suffers a bit too and doesn't help this weak link in the chain...
The black and white art is stunning by both todd McFarlane and Gregg capullo (you get to see quickly how Gregg's work evolves into what we know and love) and with stories included written by such luminaries as neil gaiman and alan moore with a weird little one shot by dave sim featuring his Cerberus character.
Again don't be put off by the no colour thing ,I grew up in a time when colour was a luxury! Ok,sometimes the art can be sooo detailed it can look messy and confusing but this doesn't happen much but it should encourage you to LOOK at the panels and take it all in ...
Great characters in a great story with great visuals roll on compendium 2!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Good introduction to spawn! 11 Jan 2013
By o00o00o00o00o - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a way to get the first 50 issues of spawn without being too expensive, and I found this. However, it's all in black and white. It definately gives a diffrent edge to the spawn comics, the artwork is still great, although it can be hard to understand what's going on at times, especially during explosions. If you want color, that's what the origins series is for, which is the reason why image didn't decide to make the compendium in color.

New or Veteran Spawn Fans 3 July 2013
By Rogu3 Knigh7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've just recently started getting into comics. Wasn't really interested years ago due to the fact it felt like you had to travel the four parts of the world for one expensive issue. But that change when the compendiums and omnibuses came out for both books, Manga and Comics. The Spawn Compendium collects issues 1-50 so it is a great read for both those who are getting into Spawn and for those long time fans who were unable to get the sold out issues. And at these prices its worth picking up.

Great 21 Jan 2013

I got this as a gift for someone who is a big fan of Spawn and he sat down and read the whole thing in two days. It is in black and white but that just shows off the detail of the characters and environments.

Great 21 Sep 2012
By Tomy the Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For the shade of black color, this black and white collection is better than the last one. Compare with essential or showcase presents, 10 bucks are for gloss papers. Although i have first 25 issues, i m happy 2 collect this thick book. Yeah~ it is so heavy, heavier than 3 volumes of knightfall.
