    Are there any more Spawn fans here?

    They're missing a lot if they don't see these. :)

    I think it is just you and me - then again since we are in between issues you can't blame the masses. Let's see how the discussion proceed after the next issue (#176 "The Monster in the Bubble" Part 1 of 2) is released in a couple of weeks.

    I am a little shocked there were a lot of comments about the preview pages but then again I know people are a little reluctant to admit they still are interested in a book that is associated with McFarlane.

    Would we cause trouble if we made a separate thread that shows these previews for the next issue? Maybe once we find out the date for the upcoming issue, we could make a separate thread for it.

    Oddly enough they have not - and that is why this thread is here. I am fairly certain that everyone, including my grandma, has owned a copy of Spawn #1 at one time in their life. Many people base their opinion of this book on those early McFarlane issues. That would be 100% wrong as this is a well written book and it keeps getting better. David Hine and Brian Haberlin are exploring the depths of a truly unique character each and every month.

    I would suggest for those of you that normal don't pick up a copy to get issue #176 that comes out this month and see what you think. I know we have extensive pull lists but really can't you find another $2.99 for a single month and check out a book that has found a way to evolve and change for more than 14 years and keeps getting better?
    • If you don't like it you are out $2.99 (send a note to Todd I am sure he would refund you :p )
    • If you think you like it then get the next issue as this is going to be a 2 issue story arc.
    • If you really like the book, as I trust you will, thank me later.

    I wonder when we'll ever see the Curse. I think he is an interesting character, able to combine advanced technology and weaponry with supernatural power to bring something completely different. I wonder how much he has changed since his last appearance. I think he'd be more powerful now since during Armageddon's he probably found a lot of raw materials to experiment on and make himself stronger.

    He would be a great character to reappear here in the near future. I think as the cracks between Heaven and Hell start to open he could be a good character to appear again...

    You're on. I'll give it a shot, but do me a favor and bump up this thread with a reminder post when the issue hits so I don't forget.

    Consider it done - heck I will even shoot you a PM and remind you the day before it drops. If you don't like it come back and tell everyone I am crazy... I don't mind the haters, as long as they give the book a fair shot.

    :D one down - 29,999 more to go before I can double this thing.

    Talking Gunslinger Spawn - Inside Look

    For those of you that did not get to see any of the recent Gunslinger Spawn 2 issue story arc, what were you thinking? Here is a treat for you. Below is a copy of the pencil art that was done on this issue by guest artist Bing Casino. As amazing as the pencils look you should have seen it colored... AMAZING.

    I was really into Spawn till about issue 40 or so (around the intro of the "Freak" I think). It's nice to see that it's still delivering a good read, from what I've read here.

    One thing about current Spawn I have to ask: is Chapel still around at all? I know Liefeld created/owns the character, but he KILLED AL SIMMONS!!! Is that still canon? If it was retconned, what's the new story of Al Simmons' death?

    When it was first revealed that it was Chapel (in issue 12 or so), I thought that was so cool! Liefeld created this "bad-ass" type of guy for his team book, and McFarlane goes and makes him an actual bad-ass by having him be the guy who originally killed Spawn! (And remember, this was within the first 2 years of Image, so (imo) it all just seemed so much bigger then, you know?)

    No Chapel is long gone and so is the concept that he killed Al Simmons. This really came to a head with the release of the movie. Since Rob owned Chapel's rights Todd decided to change the killer because either (a) he and Rob could not agree on financial terms or (b) he was too cheap to pay him. I would think the later.

    Jessica Preist was a government operative that was on the mission with Al and she pulled the trigger that killed him. Ultimately it was Jason Wynn that made the call. Long confusing story but we are over 100 issues past that so it is no longer a concern.

    Issue #176 should be out in the next couple of weeks - I would encourage you to give it a try.
