Spawn #10

by Dave Sim & Todd McFarlane

“Crossing Over”
Dedicated To: Don Heck

There is a line of men. Their hands are bound behind them. They are hooded. Helpless… Without them Spawn (I… He) could not exist… Beneath their hoods they are weeping.

OUR POWER IS YOURS, SPAWN.

TAKE IT!

Their creators. The ones who sold them. Like Cerebus said. It’s best not to think about it.

Infiniti

by Eric Stephenson & Richard Horie

“Awakenings”, “Awakenings Part Two”, “Strange Interlude” & “Bull Rush”

Trans-dimensional jump successful. I have arrived on Earth… and my readings indicate that these crude attempts at constructing artificial life from existing genetic matrices will suffice our needs.

On Capitol Hill today, Senator Edward Rife continued to push for renewed investigation into the dealings of former CIA Director Jedemiah Hagstrom.

Memory or no memory, I’m here for a reason. And no matter how self-righteous it sounds, it’s my duty to protect people. I bet Enigma knew it all along.

Spawn #9

by Neil Gaiman & Todd McFarlane

“Angela”
Dedicated To: Harvey Kurtzman

Oh, poor little hellspawn. You have been hunted… Now you’ll never be a captain in the army of the Malebolgia.

Count Nicholas Cagliostro. At your service, Mr. Simmons.

You did a deal with the devil, huh? You hadn’t even stopped to think about which one?

Men call me Angela.

Angela #1-3 (1994)

by Neil Gaiman & Greg Capullo

“Angela”
Dedicated To: Mike Gaiman, Jack Kirby, Susan Alston and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund

I’ve been decorated a dozen times in the battle against the forces of the Malebolgia… I’ve personally destroyed over thirty hellspawn. No one has ever questioned my integrity before. No one who wanted to keep their vital organs intact and inside them…

This is Gabrielle, Director of Terran Affairs, reporting formally to The Metatron via The First Dominion… concerning the missing dimensional lance…

200 years old. Your first case. Bizarre– I was foolishly expecting a fair trial.

Spawn #8

by Alan Moore & Todd McFarlane

“In Heaven”
Dedicated To: Don & Maggie Thompson

i mean, nobody deserves that! not even, say, somebody who did twenty-seven kids and kept the bodies in his ice cream truck. which i didn’t. and even if i did, isn’t there a constitutional rights issue here? hmmm?

what kind of afterlife is this?

There’s ten dead-lands. Like spheres, one inside another.

Now THIS, this place you’re gonna like! Some people call is the Eighth Sphere, some call it The Malebolge, but ME… I call it HOME!!

The Savage Dragon: Baptism of Fire (1992)

by Erik Larsen

Chicago, Illinois. Now.

I’m Lieutenant Frank Darling from the Chicago Police Department… You were found in a burning vacant lot. Do you have any idea how you got there? Do you remember anything about your life prior to waking up here? How come you have green skin?

Listen, Dragon. I need your help. We’re being slaughtered out there. Super-freaks have stopped us at every turn. Cops are dying, local super-heroes are being put out of commission… You’ve got power, Dragon– we need somebody like you on our side.

Cops sent a damn monster to get me.

Spawn #7 by Todd McFarlane

“Payback” Part 2
Dedicated To: Rob Liefeld

Three weeks ago, Al Simmons returned from the grave.

Got enough firepower to level a small building… or a big cyborg.

I’LL SEE YA IN HELL, BRO’.

HA-HAheeHAR! You look like CRAP! Y’know, the oozy, smelly kind. Now I’m gonna stomp you– so I can scrape you off my boot– you piece of TURD!

Brigade #1-4 (1992)

by Rob Liefeld, Marat Mychaels & Extreme Studios

Battlestone… Seahawk… Coldsnap… Atlas… Thermal… Kayo… Stasis…

This new team is much more to my liking. With the proper guidance, this team could be everything Youngblood wasn’t… and never will be!

I am Genocide! The mere utterance of my name causes entire civilizations to quake with fear!

Hear me, Taraban dogs! You have dared challenge a member of the Imperial High Council— an act as foolhardy as it is unforgivable! As council magistrate, I find it impossible to let your blatant disrespect go unpunished. Know now that you have been found guilty of crimes against the crown prince J’nissyde and as a consequence– –You MUST DIE!

Spawn #6 by Todd McFarlane

“Payback” Part 1
Dedicated To: Stan Lee

OVERT-KILL! In whispered voices, some call him “Overkill.” It has to do with his tendency to go beyond the necessary means.

Gino told me that Overt-Kill thinks it’s a Youngblood he’s after. He had a run-in with them a few years back, and hasn’t forgotten how they embarrassed him.

I’m not some drunk hobo that you can steamroll! Or are you afraid of someone who can fight back?!

A CYBORG! I fought them years ago, before I was killed. But they weren’t nearly as advanced. Nor as deadly.

WildCATs: Covert Action Teams #1-4 (1992)

by Jim Lee with Brandon Choi & Co.

I… witnessed my own death. The death of Major Adrianna Tereshkova.

Heavy collateral damage… Best guess? Two rogue C.A.T.s duked it out in the middle of D.C.

You were once Lord Emp– one of the four Lords of Power– the champion of mankind.

…We may begin the reunification. Soon our Daemonite brothers shall join us in conquering this misbegotten planet.

You’re all under arrest! Release the Vice-President! Now!

You are cured, Billy Kinkaid.

Spawn #4 by Todd McFarlane

“Questions,” Part 4
Dedicated To: Joe Shuster

Who gave you such powers?! Since when do humans begin to rate? They’ve always been too fragile for this!

Spawn continues his silence, for what does a man say to an offspring of the pits of Hell?

You have failed miserably! It is incompetents like you that make my battle against GOD so laborious!

Shadowhawk #1-4 (1992) by Jim Valentino

Out of the Shadows

His spinal column snaps like a twig. You are SHADOWHAWK… and you’re taking back the night!

God, I love my job! The sweet fragrance of flickering flame! The bloom of the billowing smoke! The screams of the recently domestically displaced! All are like music to the ears of– ARSON!

I still hunger. I must eat. Please forgive me.
