Questions Pt.1 last edited by pikahyper on 01/25/19 06:31AM View full history

While a strange assailant stalks the city, ripping out human hearts, another otherworldly being arrives. As his mind reels, our tortured hero remembers that he struck a deal with the devil in order to return to his beloved wife - five years after his death. The man who was Al Simmons is no more. He has become Spawn.

This issue was a wild success selling 1.7 million copies during its launch.

Amazing. Spectacular. UBER PWNAGE! All these words describe it. I loved it and have bought #1-4 of Spawn Origins, and have never looked back and sure as hell (pun intended) don't regret it.

Less Is More 0

Meet Spawn, a hero with no memory. He is a hero with no past, no secret identity, no idea who he really is. That means he has no baggage. This is the perfect jumping on point!
