    Short summary describing this issue.

    Untitled (200th Anniversary Special) last edited by toxin45 on 01/16/20 06:49PM View full history

    Spawn has reach 200 issue and to celebrate Todd has invited many old friends to contribute variant covers: Jim Lee, David Finch and Ashley Wood to name a few.

    Besides the variant covers, this is an over-sized comic with over 50 pages of content with only 3 ads at the very end of the comic, to not interrupt the story.

    Issue #200 is a huge moment for the Spawn series because it is meant to officially close the door on the Al Simmons Chapter of Spawn. Changing gears to the new host of Spawn Jim Downing, Spawn as a series is both visually changing after issue 200 and in the way it is written. New interior artist Szymon Kudranski is given the final story page to transition to the new look Spawn is heading too.

    As the Al Simmons door closes Jim Downing is introduced to new readers. Being a milestone issue, the creative team decided to use this issue as a grand opening, if you will, to the New Spawn in town. The key players as well are all addressed: from Clown to The Omega, the Spawn universe was explored in this issue.

    Man I've been away from Spawn for a while.  I went to the comic shop, it being Wednesday and all, looked at the new comics and saw stacks of Spawn comics.  First I noticed it was issue #200, then I noticed all the nice variants.  Picked a random one up, thumbed it and saw a white guy in the Spawn costume.  I was like WTF?  Where's Al?  It seems like no one reads Spawn Monthly anymore since no one could answer my question. At $4 and already past my budget, I was like only one cover.  That was har...

    I guess I had big expectations for this issue, being the 200th issue and so, but unfortunally reading this was just a reminder of why I quit reading Spawn back in the 90´s (I think I´ve only read it ´till # 25 or so). This book was boring, all those borind dialogues about Hell, controlling the suit, Violator Vs The Freak dude, the whole Al Simmons´suicide and becoming an Omega Spawn, nah, this kind of material just don´t work for me anymore. I really respect Todd McFarlane for all his work, but ...
