Spawn: Endgame Vol. 1

October 19, 2009 | Trades

The rumours of Todd McFarlane’s demise appear to have been greatly exaggerated.

The one-time king of comic book artists, responsible for several of the bestselling single issues in history, returns with a flourish to one of his greatest creations in Spawn: Endgame Vol. 1 (Image Comics, $14.99 U.S., 132 pages).

As co-writer alongside Brian Holguin and eye-popping inker, over fellow Image Comics founder Whilce Portacio’s pencils, McFarlane helps set a new direction for his hellish character with the apparent suicide of long-time protagonist Al Simmons and the rise of a mysterious new Hellspawn to take his place.
