Library Journal Review

Steven Niles (30 Days of Night) and Spawn scribe David Hine chronicle the plight of the Hellspawn once known as Al Simmons, condensing the narrative of the long-running image comic and providing insights into the dramatis personae. Unfortunately, even though Niles has the reputation of a horror master, his prose is disappointing and ultimately bores. Furthermore, as the majority of the considerable Spawn canon is covered here, the authors are limited to touching upon major plot points and characters, eschewing the details that might have proved more satisfying. The layout is poorly executed as well, with text broken up into single lines and awkwardly placed blocks ruining continuity. Where this does shine is in Ashley Wood's (The Official Metal Gear Solid Comic Book) paintings. From the tiny single panel insets to the majestic full-page splashes, his vivid artwork seems to breath a menace of its own. Verdict Spawn fans and genre enthusiasts are better off buying the collected volumes of the actual comic book.-George Sun, New York (c) Copyright 2010.
