Al Simmons continues to work his plan and both the forces of heaven and hell are aligning to stop him.
Spawn has gone after two of the biggest things both parties have prized for years, their anonymity and finances. One of the next parts of Al’s plan is to attract the attention of an assassin from heaven. One who has similar powers to Al.
Their resulting battle will not only test whether Al is ready for the battles to come, but it will also signal the next part of his plan. One that has higher repercussions for everyone.
This proactive, calculating and methodical Spawn continues to impress me. It’s an awesome thing to see Al taking control for once and attacking an enemy with precision. Todd McFarlane has crafted a story that always seems to be moving and changing in new and exciting ways. This issue is another example of taking established expectations of a character and changing them to give the reader a sense of uncertainty about where the story is going. I continue to enjoy this story arc and its ability to be unpredictable.
The art by Jason Shawn Alexander is rough and gritty. Making it absolutely perfect for both this story and its tone. The visuals are a perfect match to this story.
