Who Is In Control? The Man? Or the Monster?

"Complex Messiah" is an epic new story arc, serving as a jumping on point for new readers, as well as the next phase in Spawn's evolution. As the worldwide fervor around Jim Downing's miraculous gifts continues to grow, the darkness that lives within him begins to threaten his newfound fame.

Meanwhile, a small group of online friends gain insight into their understanding of the Hellspawn, slowly piecing together a dangerous new theory about the world's newest "messiah."

And, somewhere in the shadows, an old enemy lurks.

Also featured: Detective Craig Rowand came to New York looking for clues. That journey brought him face-to-face with evil in the form of the demonic temptress, Hel. Haunted by the encounter, a good man's steady spiral into madness begins here.

    Overall the issue further sets up a story that I’m anxious to see explored and a character I can’t get enough of- the way Spawn rips Jim out of bed, comes over him and transforms him into a monster is really cool and makes me want to see the inevitable point where the man Jim Downing and the Demon symbiote Spawn butt heads. The setup of the corrupt Vatican and the traitor in the midst subplot of the demon inhabited Susan all make me want to stick around to see what comes of it all. I just wish it would move a little faster or at least that a few more heads would get split along the way. Read Full Review

    The story isn't very exciting and all the dialog is a chore to read. The art style is awesome though. It's very dark and shadowy giving the story a dark feel but not enough to keep me interested as a whole. I know it can't be like the Spawn of old but more than one page of action wouldn't kill anyone. I take no joy in trashing this title I just want something more for such a classic character.
