Spawn Origins, Volume 1 by Todd McFarlane
Sometimes, when I go on vacation, my old comics packed upstairs in the dusty webbed attic of my summerhouse on the mountains call me begging to be read again... this year its McFarlanes Spawn turn.
This mix of Millers Dark Knight (the representation of tv journalism, the cape and some drawings), Howard Mackies smash-hit Ghost Rider (The Pact with the Devil, the chains, the hellish powers), same drawn by McFarlane Spider-Man (look at the mask and some prospectives) and everything crossing the authors mind (Detectives Sam and Twitch are a cocktail of Oliver-Hardy- and Batmans Bullock-Alfred) is just as not as good as I used to remember (the movie is far worst, thrust me), but artworks aged much well, the Danny De Vito/Joker-Violator always made me laugh a lot, the Billy Kinkaid children murderer issue is a brutal politically incorrect sick-fest and this 90s comic-book shocked american comic-dom being first good quality creator-owned one after years of authors/artists slavery from major editors.
And reading Spawn again was like meeting again a long time lost friend, so four stars are totally deserved for me.

Spawn is a fictional superhero appearing in a monthly comic book of the same name published by American company Image Comics. Spawn was adapted into a feature film and portrayed by Michael Jai White , an HBO animated series lasting from until , a series of action figures whose high level of detail made McFarlane Toys known in the toy industry, and a reboot film starring Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner , alongside a sequel animated series. Spawn enjoyed considerable popularity upon its initial release in the s. Comic book collecting was enjoying a marked upswing at the time, fueled by the speculator boom looking for the next hot book that would jump in value after its release. McFarlane's subsequent break with Marvel and the formation of Image Comics was seen by many as a sea-change event, changing the very way in which comics were produced. The first issue of Spawn was very popular with sales of 1. The popularity of the franchise peaked with the Spawn feature film , the pre-release publicity for which helped make Spawn the top selling comic book for May ;  in addition, the spin-off Curse of the Spawn 9 came in at fifth best-selling for the same month.
