J.J. Kirby – Artist
Todd McFarlane– Writer
August 17, 2016
We are one day away from New Comic Book Day and I wanted to take the time to play some catch up on some titles for today. Back in August of 2016, I picked up a title because it looked interesting just from the title and I like what Todd McFarlane (Todd McFarlane’s Spawn) brought to the table. The man has wowed me as far as the feature film of Spawn, his work on Spider-Man, and even the action figures that he was producing. So, I decided to take a chance on the book Spawn Kills Everyone! #1 which also featured J.J. Kirby (Mutant X) as the illustrator for the title which was also a one shot comic. Haven’t you ever wondered who the strongest superhero in all of the galaxies was? I mean across every company that has ever existed? Well, a pint sized figure that looks like Spawn is at the San Diego Comic Con convention to announce that he has a new movie, but there is one problem. What happens when a bunch of cosplayers think that he is just another rude cosplayer and what is his reaction going to be? To read more about it, just click here to go to Image.
This was definitely a fun little story to run because Spawn doesn’t realize that these are not the real superheroes. One of the cool things about this comic is that he makes fun of what has happened to his character over the years and some of the changes that were made. One of the best parts was his confrontation with “Deadpool” because then he is throwing all sorts of claims at him as far as his ego is concerned. The whole comic he is just trucking through everyone as he literally murders everyone in his path. It’s an absolute bloodbath and no one is safe from Spawn not even his creator. So, if you like tons of bloodshed in your comic to go along with the action then this may be the title for you. I liked the artwork, I didn’t love it, but I liked it because it fit the comic. It fit the mood and tone of what the comic was about so it won some points there. It’s definitely a fun comic to check out and have some laughs with so if you can find it then check it out.
