Product Description

Amazon Review

Todd McFarlane, one of the comic industry's true mavericks, now stands regularly accused of creative negligence and an overt interest in corporate gain. Yet, his seminal dark superhero creation Spawn still has much to offer and interest, if you can bypass the series' inadequacies, commonplace in this 12th volume comprising issues 59-64. The bulk of it focuses on Spawn's plot to avenge himself on his former boss and murderer, Jason Wynn. In the midst of his vengeful plans, Spawn must save baby Cyan from the rancid clutches of Clown and, what does his impromptu meeting with the fallen angel Angela hold for the future? While Greg Capullo still provides excellent artwork (Spawn is the visual equivalent of an explosion of black glass), McFarlane is now forcefully proving that he is a far from effective writer. Cloying sentimentality, ham-fisted religious debate and narrative waffle consistently undermines the flow of the series' hard stories. Yet, when Spawn suddenly regains his true face, McFarlane shows he is still capable of maintaining the intense torment and anger that makes Spawn so intriguing. Even so, Spawn's military precision attack on Wynn's stronghold and his confrontation of his nemesis is excellent stuff and most rewarding to see the all-powerful Wynn finally have the squeeze put on him. Spawn taking control of his situation rather than being consumed by it has been long overdue as is seeing the tormented hero finally getting some payback--or is he succumbing further to Hell's rule? This far in, the key to enjoying Spawn is loyalty and patience, but will it be rewarded with more Spawn toys? Danny Graydon

"How long can you go on with this thing?"My friend asks me as I walk out of the bookshop with the latest Spawn saga collection, Devestation. He asked me that when I bought Damnation and corruption also.He simply can't appreciate the first class work that has gone into the story of Al Simmons and his tormented existence caught in between the "cold war" between Heaven and Hell.I couldn't wait to see what Al was doing witn those monstrously sized guns he's brandishing on the front cover. It turns out he's ready to carry out his vendetta against his former superior, Jason Wynn.I knew that Wynn wouldn't be easy to kill, I also knew that Al wouldn't be prepared to finish things quickly. It is all heading toward a confrontation that will not end for quite some time yet. I truly enjoyed reading this book, it diverted back to the primary agenda of Al Simmons, to avenge his death, and maybe win back his wife, Wanda. It also reveals more about a Hellspawn's seemingly limitless abilities, and how they can sometimes stab you in the back.I have ordered the next episode form this service and judging by the reviews other readers gave it, "Termination" should be just as good as this. In my opinion, Spawn is the best adult aimed comic around, offering more depth and feeling than others, with a story that you can't help but continue to read.
