Spawn #31

by Todd McFarlane & Greg Capullo

“The Homecoming”
Dedicated To: Tom Palmer

Filled with an anxiety he didn’t expect, Spawn breaks into a sprint. Adrenalin pumps harder. He needs his alleys. Moreso, he wants them.

Gentlemen, let this serve as a formal introduction. I am Rafael. I am taking over for Gabrielle, who has been removed as Commander of Terran Affairs.

Earlier today in New York City’s Bowery, a “mysterious light” was at the center of the unexpected disappearance of one of the area’s leading citizens. Phil Timper had worked with the homeless through various charities and shelters for eleven years, and was honored last year…

Violator vs. Badrock #1-4 (1995)

by Alan Moore & Brian Denham & Jonathan Sibal & Danny Miki

Through here we have video records of the shopping mall incident last year in New York that inspired Project Dante… A group of extra-terrestrial beings, strikingly similar to the medieval concept of demons, appeared from thin air…

Celestine #1-2 (1996)

by Warren Ellis & Patrick Lee & various

Where do angels go when they die?

There is an angel who has killed angels. There was a rebellion in heaven once, and she wore the teeth of the rebels as jewelry. She struck them down, and thought nothing of where she was sending them…

I fought a demon on Earth, and he tricked me. He tore out my heart and threw it on the floor.

“The Clan”
Dedicated To: Little Katie and Cyan

Those white-trash maggots! I swear they’ll pay for this! If it’s the last thing I do, they’ll pay!

So believe me, I understand your anger… but they’ve only torched your fields. When they had all they could stomache of me, they torched something far more precious. That’s why I wear the mask. Because of them.

WHAT?! It’s a friggin’ colored! How dare you desecrate the sacred robe?! NO darkie is worthy of its touch! How dare you mess with us?!

“Father”
Dedicated To: Michael Murphy

If you get into the habit, you might find yourself hitting someone you love, like I did, and regretting it forever. It’s not worth it. You’ve got a great couple of kids there, and they need a father. It’s time you started acting like one. A lot of people have good feelings about you, Joe… It’s time the two most important ones felt the same way. End of sermon. Now, I want to leave a little reminder for you…

Angela (1995)

by Beau Smith & Brad Gorby with various

I’ve taken down over thirty Hellspawn in my time. You’re not like any of the others. I want to know why.

It’s gotta be the heavy religion factor that seems to radiate from Earth. Mass quantities of those that thump the Bible. Hunting Hellspawn was easier then. You had a mission. No gray area. You found them, you killed them, and that was that.

The night screamed with madness and fury. But even it was dwarfed by the insanity and evil that flowed through the body of CUT THROAT,

CAPTAIN OF THE DAMNED!

“Protector”
Dedicated To: Terry Austin

I’ve seen the error of my ways. Relied far too heavily on The Lord. He’s forsaken me. I understand that now. Even after all I’ve given of myself, I shall never enter His kingdom. So I cast away my allegiance.

I must be crazy. Didn’t like having to lie to Terry about where I was going, but he’d have never let me go alone. The dumb thing is, he’d’ve been right. The chances of me being able to find the Spawn are pretty remote… But he’s got the answers to some very serious questions. Like… who tried to kill my husband?

I’M KING HERE!

Shadowhawk II #1-3 (1993)

by Jim Valentino

The Secret Revealed

Been gone for only six weeks… just long enough for the wounds to heal from my fight with The Dragon… and some punk kid has usurped by turf!

I’m not a super-hero. I stop violent crime. I’m not into common robbery.

There’s a guy out there that I might have inspired… killing Black men…

“Cursed”
Dedicated To: John Buscema

I’ll prove worthy of your empire. I can’t begin to know your great plans, Lord, but I must profess that it does confuse me. I’m forced to use technology from the secular world. I’ve spent the majority of my fortune preparing for your kingdom. Why do you forsake me?

Chapel killed Bobby to get at me. He was just an innocent victim… LIVE!

“The Dark”
Dedicated To: Dave Sim

That is why, after a very long and difficult deliberation, I’ve decided to remove her from your care and put her in a new set of circumstances. This, I believe, is for her own good.

You torture yourself for answers that, mostly, you’ve been given. You’re just not trying hard enough. Much as I’m tempted to write you off, you do show some spark.

Call me Gabrielle, Mr. Simmons. If I might have a moment of your time, I really would like to talk to you.

Bloodstrike #4-10 (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!

Bloodstrike: Brutalists #23 (2018)

by Michel Fiffe

Arms, eyes, surgically removed… prolonged state of anesthesia… medical field… official capacity or independent study… Test subjects? Sex slaves? Young women– girls– barely out of high school. Brenda will be a senior soon.

Youngblood #7-8 & 10 (1992)

by Rob Liefeld with Eric Stephenson, Danny Miki & Jonathan Sibal

He shot Bobby— blew his head clean OFF!

As a man who has literally been to hell and back, there is precious little that frightens Al Simmons these days. This, however, comes close. This is the man who killed him. Emerging from the smoke and shadows, he looks like the devil himself, the ghastly white skull he chose long ago as his trademark eerily incandescent in the moonlight. A none-too-subtle reminder of what has passed between these two men… and the unholy bond they share.

It wasn’t until later I figured out everything for myself in one divine moment of clarity– if you had really come back from the dead, then so could I! Thing with me though, Al– I could care less about love and happiness. You can have that crap. I’ve got bigger plans for my return– plans that will change everything… forever.

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.

“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?

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?

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…

“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.
