Todd McFarlane's creation Spawn made a huge splash in the comicbook
industry when the first issue sold 2.1 million copies. The art is
amazing, storyline is a good read and Spawn happens to be black.
your average black superhero since most of the storylines revolve
around hell and most brothers would agree that you don't have to
travel that far for a taste of purgatory. Tormented, and tricked
into becoming a Hell-Spawn - Al Simmons has one goal which is to
return to the living and protect his lovely wife Wanda. A big mistake
since one of his closest friends already put the moves on her, which
adds to his rage.
books strong points lie in the human struggle of Al Simmons as he
tries to conquer those demons (no pun intended) in his life. Yes,
Al has been given power beyond his wildest dreams yet each time
he uses it he is one step closer to returning to hell. Currently,
Spawn has migrated into multiple comic series, he's had an animated
series on HBO, a feature-length movie, toys, and a playstation video
game (yes the game sucks).
