Spawn: Blood and Shadows

SPAWN
BLOOD & SHADOWS

There is a great introduction from Spawn creator Todd McFarlane explaining what this take on his classic character is all about. You see Todd like most of us loved the "Arkham Asylum" classic and he felt like a lot do in that it was what was the closest to the Batman character that you can get. He had always wanted to do the same with his character, he had always wanted the Spawn character to be much darker than it had been. So when writer Paul Jenkins came with this story he knew he had his chance to bring Spawn to a much darker place.

The story follows the lives of some of societies rejects living in a broke down building. This is a building that seems to have drawn them all here, one by one. None know each other and never really meet, but their destinies all have one thing in common, this place. Each person lives there lives the only way they know how but each is hiding a secret that haunts them, but that is not the only thing haunting them. Something is lurking in the shadows, watching, waiting, and only one person seems to know that someone is there.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this story from front to back, this is a great and dark tale. Paul Jenkins did a marvelous job here with this story crafting a tale full of darkness and great characters. Each person in this story has a secret that is killing them each slowly, some don't even know it. Couples, singles, it does not matter as the Hell Spawn is coming for those who deserve their fate. And if the story wasn't great enough you should see the style and art work of this book. It looks, feels, and flows like a horror movie which only adds to the atmosphere of the overall presentation.

I really enjoyed this book and I think that most of anyone who reads this will as well. If you are a fan of comics, Spawn, and graphic novels then you should be into this one. From the characters to the drawings this is a great read. One of the better Spawn books not in the normal storyline.

You are very welcome. There's a good review of the Maidana fight and others on the Las Vegas card in my section on Contact Sports.
