We get some fantastic gladiatorial action & cultural context for the slaves of War World in Action Comics #1039, a wonderful take in a no-nonsense Peacemaker from Garth Ennis, Superman '79 #6 concludes a series worthy of the world Donner and Reeve brought to life and we get GREAT cliffhangers in Detective #1050 and DC vs Vampires #4. Human Target #4 continues the transcendent artwork & charming story that we simply cannot get enough of while the Batman-Catwoman special is a worth tribute to John Paul Leon.

Spawn is still far form home, Not wanting to use his energy to teleport back to New York he is traveling by foot through the South when he encounters members of the KKK terrorizing local Black farmers.

Just what until you see how justice is served in this story.

DC Spotlight January 11, 2022 Releases

Jan 18, 2022

Spawn #29 - Story - Todd McFarlane, Art - Greg Capullo & McFarlane, Letters - Tom Orzechowski, Colors - Steve Oliff

Fresh off a battle with Angela (No, we haven't read that yet either), Spawn finds himself in need of a place to hide out and gets help from an unlikely ally. As it turns out though, this person may need Spawn's help more than Spawn needed his. It's an emotional story and one that broaches an uncomfortable subject.

Jan 17, 2022

Spawn #28 - Story - Todd McFarlane, Art - McFarlane & Greg Capullo, Letters - Tom Orzechowski, Colors - Steve Oliff

Spawn decides to use Curse himself as a living warning sign for all the psychos who may came after him next. Meanwhile Curse has abandoned his faith and swears he will have his revenge on Spawn.

Jan 15, 2022

Spawn #27 - Story - Todd McFarlane, Art - McFarlane & Greg Capullo, Letters - Tom Orzechowski, Colors - Steve Oliff

In this episode of Spawn Daily we meet Curse. A fanatical believer in God who has sacrificed a lot in the name of finding Peace. Don't ask us how his love & desire for peace means blowing a huge hole in Spawn's chest because we're not sure either.

Jan 14, 2022

Spawn #26 - Story - Todd McFarlane, Art - McFarlane & Greg Capullo, Letters - Tom Orzechowski, Colors - Steve Oliff

It feels like a shift back to the Heaven vs Hell narrative that we saw the series focus on in the early issues. So much of the recent storylines have focused on the mob angle and Al Simmons past. Now it's time to lean back into the supernatural.

Jan 14, 2022

Spawn #25 - Story - Todd McFarlane, Pencils - Marc Silvestri, Inkers - Batt & Billy Tan, Letters - Tom Orzechowski, Colors - Brian Haberlin

The legendary Marc Silvestri joins Spawn for one issue during October 1994 for the Image Creator Crossover month. We wonder if the issue itself has a bit of a different narrative feel because McFarlane played to Silvestri's strength, but this is a quicker read than a lot of the early Spawn issues.

Jan 12, 2022

Spawn #24 - Story & Art - Todd McFarlane, Letters - Tom Orzechowski, Colors - Steve Oliff

We get the conclusion of The Hunt storyline as all the thread that have been running the last three issues come together. It's a bit of an abrupt ending but ultimately it wraps up everything. We just wonder a bit about some of the decisions Spawn makes.
