Comics fans from around the world are settling in to absorb all of the great titles they were able to pick up during Free Comic Book Day, with offerings from just about every comics publisher out there.
Spawn #1 made the rounds again, with a splashy new cover from Francesco Mattina. It’s kind of a trip down memory lane to thumb through this issue again, but let’s not panic about missing this issue- you’ve seen it before, and it’s been reprinted in its entirety multiple times.
So, unless you were really sweating it over the new cover, your Spawn collection should be just fine. If you’re interested in reading this story for yourself, the first graphic novel collection of the Spawn comic book will give you plenty of story for your buck!
One thing’s for certain, though- the art is still as fresh and innovative as it was when Spawn was originally released. It’s easy to see how McFarlane essentially gave comics a swift shot of raw adrenaline with this title!
