Spawn 20 Years Later: Looking Back at the Quintessential 90s Comic Book
For nearly 30 years, Al Simmons has been doling out justice and revenge to guilty parties in the pages of Image's Spawn comics. It marks a solid run for a comic book character, but becomes nearly unparalleled when you consider that the antihero's creator, Todd McFarlane , has been writing Al's stories every step of the way. All his hard work will pay off this summer with the release of Spawn , a momentous milestone issue that will tie the record for longest-running creator-owned comic on the planet with Dave Sim's Cerebus. That's the story to me over everything else I'm gonna be an example and Image Comics is gonna be a glowing example.

It did not end well for either of them. Spawn was the flag-bearer of an infant Image, but things have not gone well since then. That many issues ago, it was the beginning of the Image era, and a new dawn for creator-owned comics. Since this soul-trading business usually involves something priceless, and the one thing that Al wanted above all else was to be reunited with his wife Wanda. Alas, this emotional premise dragged on for way too long, resulting in an overload of melodrama. Spawn is a character that looks sensational on paper, and is even more awesome as an action figure.
My favorite issue was Spawn #, which to me is CLASSIC. Back when Angela I figure, that many issues, there must be a good arc or three.

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.
