    McFarlane does a great job in this issue of building the tension in every scene until Spawn is ready to be unleashed. It's an exercise it narrative restraint to allow for the background action and side characters to drive so much of the narrative. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Brandon S Aug 4, 2018

    As a whole, the chapter was a bit of setup while allowing Spawn to show her terrifying and powerful he was. At the same time introducing yet another form for his costume. But beyond that and Overt-Kill at the end not much happened. The art was still nicely stylized and we only got two of the three usual reporters in a surprising change. But it felt slow and gave an odd feeling I can't quite describe. It's not bad but it's not the best either. Read Full Review

    Spawn unleashes a lot of chaos after he returns to prison in this issue, but there's incredibly little tension to be found in the proceedings. Read Full Review

    Unless you already read Spawn and are a fan for some reason of this character, there is nothing in this book. It's not newbie-friendly, it's not exciting. It's darker than a Warner Bros. DC film in a bad way. I couldn't recommend this series to anyone who didn't already A) like Spawn, or B) appreciate McFarlane and everything he does Read Full Review
