When Todd McFarlane created the tortured anti-hero, Al Simmons, AKA SPAWN back in 1992, the character instantly became a fan favorite and has remained so for years. Now, Image Comics is about to launch a whole new series that sheds light on Mcfarlane’s original Simmons character and we can’t WAIT!
New series writer and Eisner Award-winner Paul Jenkins (Revelations, Batman: The Dark Knight) teams up with artist Jonboy Meyers (The Savage She-Hulks, Marvel Adventures Spider-Man) to shed light on Al Simmons’ tragic past in the collectible issue, SPAWN: RESURRECTION #1. Al Simmons’ highly-anticipated return to the series will then pick up with SPAWN #251.
Five years ago, Al Simmons removed himself to a state of limbo by means of suicide. But what tragic revelation could persuade him to finally return to the city, and how is this connected to the very creation of humanity? Featuring a special guest character: God. Trust us: you’ve never read a SPAWN comic like this before.
Spawn: Resurrection #1 blazes into stores on March 11th.
