    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Oct 19, 2021

    This is the #1 issue you want on your shelf right now. The art work alone is worth every penny, but the story line that contributes to the Spawn timeline as well as provides a real "fish out of water" tale is beyond description as you have to read this comic several times over to love both the script as well as appreciate the art. McFarlane has created a dream team of characters, but he has recruited a dream team of writers, colorists, and artists. And of course, Tom Orzechoswski remains as a pillar to all things Spawn! BUY THIS BOOK! Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Oct 18, 2021

    By the end of the issue's main story, readers learn quickly the stakes are going to be high in this series. And that's probably McFarlane's greatest strength as a writer " the plotting. The dialogue is good enough here, but narration leaves a bit to be desired. (That's what makes King Spawn stand out so much.) Still, the constant mix of kick-ass art in every Spawn book makes up for it's flaws, especially when the plot has direction. Read Full Review

    Gunslinger Spawn continues the beautifully hellish trend that started 29 years ago. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Oct 21, 2021

    Gunslinger Spawn #1 gives one of the most popular characters in the Spawn mythology his own title, favoring style over substance for its debut. Spawn fans will no doubt enjoy it, though other readers may prefer the various other Spawn titles. I hope that future issues flesh out Gunslinger more and craft a compelling story. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 22, 2021

    Much like the Spawn franchise as a whole, Gunslinger Spawn #1 is a novel theory/concept but a bizarre execution at best"and a poor attempt at mimicking better stories at worst. Thanks, but no thanks. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - T.W. Worn Oct 20, 2021

    Gunslinger Spawn #1 is an underwhelming addition to the overall Spawn Universe, so fans, and new readers alike, may find this first issue to be more sluggish than a typical Spawn book. Read Full Review

    In the end it's another Spawn book, and that's about all that can be said. Read Full Review
