Parody one-shot SPAWN KILLS EVERYONE! written by Todd McFarlane, President of Image Comics and the creator of SPAWN and featuring art by J.J. Kirby is being rushed back to print. The satirical story made waves upon publication and in order to keep up with increased customer demand, Image Comics has fast-tracked SPAWN KILLS EVERYONE! to a third printing.
Who the heck is SPAWN you ask? Well, after CIA trained assassin Al Simmons is betrayed and murdered by his employer/handler/friend Chapel so he can move in on Al’s wife Wanda, Al makes a deal with the devil. Malbogia, to be resurrected into a powerful mystical entity a “Hellspawn”. But with his nearly limitless powers he can never be reunited with his lost love and must serve as Hell’s General eternally.
It doesn’t take.

It’s usually a much darker, gritty book than this, which is why SPAWN KILLS EVERYONE! is such an aytipical treat! Spawn kills, well… everyone. In this laugh-out-loud farce, Spawn clears a path from one side of the show floor to the other leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.
SPAWN KILLS EVERYONE!, 3rd printing (Diamond Code AUG168735) will be available in stores on Wednesday, October 19th. The final order cutoff date for retailers is Monday, September 26th. I hope to interview Mr. McFarlane at New York Comic Con which I will be covering again this year!
