One of the most vile and horrific villains in the SPAWN mythology returns:

Billy Kincaid…now, simply called KINCAID.

But his new campaign to murder is more than it seems. Like everyone else in SPAWN’S UNIVERSE…battle lines have been drawn, and all-out war is about to be unleashed.

    This is the #2 issue you want on your shelf right now. The art work alone is worth every penny, but the story lines are rich. The return of Kincaid is simply horrifying. I thought that Scott Snyder created some villains, but Billy Kincaid was terrible in the 1990s".and this new horrific version is a billion times worse. Gunslinger #1 is going to be awesome and the return of Haunt inserted into the Spawn Universe"well played Mr. McFarlane! Read Full Review

    I'm really enjoying the dives into Spawns past and true to form storytelling. Read Full Review

    There may not always be a ton of action, but things are going to move at a brisk pace. So far, that approach has made the book feel much smoother than the average Spawn book. Read Full Review

    Overall, King Spawn #2 is another satisfying bloody offering that will send chills up your spine. As a long-time Spawn reader, I wasn't sure how these new titles were going to be. I was picking them up regardless as they belong with the other 300 plus issues in the long boxes. I wanted King Spawn to be good, and it turned out great. Read Full Review

    In the same way that a buffet line might offer an attendee a few choice items in a row for their plate followed by several dishes no one wants, King Spawn works in spurts when allowed to break free from the 300+ issues of continuity and work as its own series. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 21, 2021

    King Spawn #2 moves the plot along just enough to keep your interest. Some might take issue with it connecting to the Capitol insurrection, but it is done in a way that carries emotion that doesn't feel cheap. This book also has multiple gorgeous panels and pages, but can also feel clunky, overly wordy, or oddly laid out. That all adds up to a book that is less than perfect, that isn't quite kingly, but the crown can still be attained. Read Full Review
