NEW TEAM! NEW DIRECTION! The return of Al Simmons, and the start of a brand new era for SPAWN! No one quite knows where Al’s been all this time, but it’s clear he’s come back a changed man. Wiser, stronger, and with the memories from an experience that’s he’s still struggling to understand. Tucked away in a crime-ridden corner of New York City, he’s beginning to forge new alliances, preparing defenses, and testing out his newly acquired powers... because there’s a battle coming, and it’s something that makes the Heaven/Hell thing seem like a petty squabble. So just who did Al piss off so badly while he was away?

Paul Jenkins has replaced Brian Wood to be the next writer of SPAWN. Comics veteran Jenkins will be joining artist Jonboy Meyers starting with SPAWN: RESURRECTION, before the team takes over the regular series with SPAWN #251!

Taking the form of a dog was…..interesting. I enjoyed the reintegration of Al Simmonsinto the titular role of the Spawn series.There are more soft reboots in this book than I can keep up with. First Wand...

Al Simmons Returns! 0

I don't often create reviews (in fact, this is my first), but I felt that I needed to create a review for this amazing return to the mantle. It also didn't hurt that no one else had created a review yet, so fresh ground for breaking. As a huge fan of Al Simmons in his role as Spawn, I'm a tiny bit overjoyed at his return, but at the same time I find myself just as confused as every other fan of Spawn as to where he has been all this time. Omega Spawn's appearance in the short-lived "Image Unite...
