    If I had one wish, though, I would ask for Sam and Twitch to return. Maybe next month this wish already comes true. Who knows. Here is to 300 issues of Spawn and 300 more! Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Roy Buckingham Sep 5, 2019

    The look and feel of the artwork " from both MacFarlane and his collaborators " is simply amazing to look at, with each page dripping in artistic valor, even in moments where the art seems simple. The hype is real, folks. All hail Spawn! Read Full Review

    Spawn #300 represents a milestone for the series that few other comics will ever live to see, and just one read through will be all the evidence you need as to how it's reached this remarkable accomplishment. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 5, 2019

    The art in this issue is splendid. Not only does Jason Shawn Alexander keep the dark, ominous tone that this story needs, but J Scott Campbell, Greg Capullo and the man himself Todd McFarlane remind the reader why their visual styles are so perfect for this character. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Dec 31, 1969

    Despite a superfluous prologue and epilogue, Spawn #300is a solid celebration of the hellish antihero. The next issue will seeSpawnbecome the longest-running independent creator title, and I hope that McFarlane can continue to keep the character going for another hundred issues. Read Full Review

    Spawn #300 is a fun celebration of a long-running series, though the art is the main selling point. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Sep 5, 2019

    If you are a Spawn reader this should get the salivary juices flowing in anticipation of where the title is headed. Big time writers coupled with big time artist can't hurt. Though I was hoping the Cyan would have showed up here, but most interesting is even though this is a big issue, apparent #301 is supposed to be even bigger and better if that's even possible. Well I for one can't wait. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Sep 10, 2019

    One thing that hasn't changed since the first issue is that each issue seems to have been written in a rush. There's a plan and a plot. That's easy to see. But a little bit of proofreading would go a long (LONG) way to improving the storytelling. But SPAWN fans are unlikely to notice, as they get caught up in the visual spectacle of the greatest battle of Al Simmons' afterlife. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Sep 6, 2019

    The individual stories are flat and boring, while the issue as a whole is jumbled and confusing. However, the artwork is fantastic and theres a goofy sincerity to it that reminds the reader why this character has been able to last this long. Read Full Review

    One of the best comic books made this year, and one of the best storylines to boot. Visually it’s stunning! Capullo continues to be gold on anything he touches, and it’s nice Greg came back to Spawn. Todd’s art is still amazing! It makes me wish to have more special issues to get more McFarlane pencils and full renderings. Alexander the current monthly artist section of the(which there are 5) book works really well with the story told in his sequential art. With all of the variant covers, and guest spots this has a little something for everyone. I can’t wait for Spawn #301

    Spectacular 300th issue, indeed. Let me tell this first, I have never read a Spawn comic before and since this is a historic issue I thought I'd take a look. I was stunned by the development of the character, McFarlane and Snyder tells a consistent and modern story - the beginning of something exciting. Art is terrifyingly good, it proves McFarlane has come a long way since 1992.

    Honestly, I read this to see how Scott Snyder would revitalize Spawn... only to find out this was mostly written by Todd McFarlane and if the book didn't say so, the Scott Snyder story wouldn't have even stood out as Scott Snyder. This still did its job of getting me interested in Spawn again. The story where Spawn is covering himself up without the symbiote is pretty damn cool looking. Congrats to Todd on being the longest running indie book! Although tbh I thought that was Cerebus? I have mad nostalgia for Spawn from when I was a kid, it's nice to be excited again.
