Spawn #25

by Todd McFarlane & Marc Silvestri & Matt Banning & Billy Tan

Dedicated To: The Spirit of Independence

Not Overtkill. Not SPAWN. Not GOD. NOTHING’S going to save Vito!

You people have become LAZY! Always turning to me for help. Well I don’t have the answers. I can’t solve ALL your problems. I’ve got a few of my own.

It wasn’t long ago that Vito forced me to be his guinea pig… The combination of chemicals, microsurgery, who knows what sort of radiation and anti-rejection drugs transformed me.

Spawn #24

by Todd McFarlane

“The Hunt” Part 4
Dedicated To: Joe Sinnot

It looks like someone burned his face off. God… what’s this guy been through?

Jason Wynn has become consumed with this case… He knows Fitzgerald is no traitor, but circumstances made him the logical suspect. Rather than admit his error, Wynn continues to conduct a brutal investigation.

And… if he so much as looks at you cross-eyed, make sure his death looks like an accident. Do you read me?

Bloodstrike: Brutalists #0 (2018)

by Michel Fiffe

Project: Born Again.

We’re… reanimating a civilian?

Bodyslide’s finally patched through– we’ll have to come back for Deadlock. Aw, he was just a pity recruit anyway.

Bloodstrike #1-3 (1993)

by Rob Liefeld & Dan Fraga & Eric Stephenson & & various

It’s been a long time coming, Battlestone, but it looks like we’re finally gonna get the chance to settle our differences once and for all– brother to brother!

Brigade #1-3 (1993)

by Rob Liefeld & Marat Mychaels & Norm Rapmund & Eric Stephenson

It’s been three months since the members of Brigade last set foot on their native earth, although as their ship silently arcs toward their base of operations in Malibu, California, it seems more like a lifetime.

Nice shooting, Cabbot, you nailed the little bimbo right between the eyes! Precision like that almost makes me wonder why they even bother sending the rest of us on these little road trips! I mean, in these recession-stricken times, a solo act of your caliber would definitely be more cost-effective, no?

“The Hunt” Part 3
Dedicated To: Don Thompson

Since his reconstruction, Overtkill has been programmed to believe he’s now faces Spawn, who nearly destroyed him a few weeks ago.

Yet for all his effort, Terry is only human– not nearly fast enough to outrun a bio-laser stream.

With uncanny accuracy, the bullet enters Overtkill’s body through a small opening in the ear cavity…

Violator #1-3 (1994)

by Alan Moore & Bart Sears & Greg Capullo & Mark Pennington

by Todd McFarlane

“The Hunt” Part 2
Dedicated To: Frank Miller

As for Joe Sakic, three days from now, his body will be found under the George Washington Bridge, with his hands and feet viciously severed. Decapitated. Even his genitals will be missing. The police will conduct a full investigation, but in the absence of anything identifiable about the body, will have to close the case of John Doe 1994-714. Such is the life of a trusted employee of Vito Gravano.

One of the bums he knows says our hero usually hangs out in the same four block radius. I’ve mapped it out already, sir.

God, no. Vito thinks I’M Terry.

Supreme #7-18 (1993-1994)

by Eric Stephenson & Kurt Hathaway & Rob Liefeld & Ripley and Shawn McManus & Brian Murray & Pedi & Cedric Nocon & Dan Fraga & Todd Nauck & Marat Mychaels with Norm Rapmund & various

…Your lack of control over the G.A.T.E. sponsored super-team Heavy Mettle… the public… and I… distrust them… Consider the team disbanded as of this very moment!

I will bring the entire Reich– indeed the whole of Germany to its knees until Adolph Hitler is brought to me! Know that I mean what I say– for Thor does not make idle threats!!

Welcome to Eye On Supreme. I’m Maxine Winslow, and tonight we’re talking with… the first of his super-powered generation to appear in this century.

Today everyone looks at me with suspicion– as if they seem to have forgotten how I saved their butts in the Big One… Only to find that I’d been replaced by others— the Youngbloods. They thought the world had outgrown me. The fools.

“The Hunt” Part 1
Dedicated To: Mike Grell

I don’t want your pity… I just don’t want you turning out to be like me or the other guys. We look up to you… the boys and I like like having you around. Makes us feel a bit cocky, if you know what I mean. If you can’t pick up the pieces, then you ain’t any better that us.

The matter of that little fat Clown, the dismantling of that hired gun Overt-Kill, and the invasion of your office by a costumed vigilante. Calling in The Admonisher to deal with the clown was a brilliant move, sir.

…the costumed invader… he’s Terence Fitzgerald, an operative for some ultra-covert agency.

Youngblood Strikefile #4 (1994)

by Rob Liefeld, Eric Stephenson, Jeff Matsuda & Danny Miki

Overtkill was one of my greatest creations, as well as being one of my most dramatic failures.

So, whaddya think, Al? Are these guys what hi-jacked the space station gonna take over the world, or what?

To summarize the situation in the simplest of terms… we won. The Liberty II is now free of Cybernet influence and the satellite network Giger had sought to control has been restored to its proper working order.

Is it true that Psi-Fire and Brahma are no longer with the team?

Among the dregs of humanity, Batman listens– for any scant clue… now and then he hears legends of one of their own named “Al”– a bum possessed with magical powers. Nonsense, he thinks.

It’s not just a story. It was Batman. And if he’s working for Nadia Vladova– or Margaret Love, as she’s calling herself– then he’s not the hero everybody says he is…

Elsewhen/where: The place is known as The Overlap. It is a reality that intersects all planes of existence. It is the birthplace of what’s called magic.

Bring you back to Themiscrya and lead a revolt against me, Andromache, the ruling Majestrix of The Coda!

The most brutal war on the planet– at the moment– is the one between Yurgovia and Kasmia in Eastern Europe. The Kasmians are poorly organized, poorly armed– all but defenseless against the armies of the Yurgovian Baroness Destine.

High above the world, in the silence of space, the being known as Jereb, Child of Future Light, bade farewell to the Creed hybrid whose body and mind he shared for so long.

Over twenty-six ground-based armor units and twenty air combat units are being prepped as we speak. We’re modifying forty battlesuits for our ground troops. The alpha and beta class psychics’ battle gear is also being upgraded… After this battle, there may no longer be a Connecticut.

Ever since you showed up, my whole life sucks!
