Spawn comic not as serious as the toon/movie?
Hey i've read some of the first spawn issues (issue 1 up to 10 i believe) but i find it a little silly.
Spawn getting drunk and singing the Flintstones intro, Spawn admitting he will miss those tramps (in a weird way).
Not really the spawn i loved from the movie and the toon.
I was expecting him to be more... cocky, silent and kinda a bastard instead of a silly person.
Will this change or should i stop reading if i dont like it now?
A movie/TV show interpreted the tone of source material wrong? IMPROBABLE!

Guess we're on the same boat lol.
It gets more serious later on. Especially when Todd tried to distance it from the rest of the (then) Image Universe.
In fact there are times when the brooding goes on waaaaaaay too often ;)

It becomes much darker / mature later in the run.
It gets more of a realistic horror vibe when David Hine starts writing it with issue 166, and then becomes even further grounded in "the real world" following issue 185.
Not necessarily more like the cartoon, but less like a typical superhero comic (which is what the early issues were).
Sounds good, but are you saying that it gets "better" only around 166?

The current stuffs good to. If you wanted you could just jump ahead to 185, 201 or 220.
As i say the series becomes more grimm once it got separted from the rest of the image U. Also around the time Greg Capullo took up art duties.
Im going to reread the comics again.
Last time i've read them was i think 3 months ago and stopped ever since that odd wizard guy came into the comics.
Sadly it becomes more serious.
I think if it had stayed with its original vision and been more about monsters and character designs and a little more fun it would have been a better comic overall. The first two years are by far the best material.
