Todd McFarlane’s Spawn – Definitive Collecting Guide and Reading Order

The definitive issue-by-issue collecting guide and trade reading order for Spawn in comic books and omnibus, hardcover, and trade paperback collections. Find every issue and appearance! Part of Crushing Krisis’s Crushing Comics. Last updated October 2019 with titles scheduled for release through December 2019.

In 1992, Image Comics broke onto the American comic book market with a series of smash hit launches from six formerly famous Marvel artists.

Of those Image launch books (and with almost 30 years of hindsight), Todd McFarlane’s Spawn would go on to be the most commercially successful, enduring, and influential – as well as one of the highest profile black characters in the history of comics.

Part of Spawn’s longevity is the fact that the character comes with a unique mythology that doesn’t feel like a retread of any other existing comics character.

Al Simmons is a CIA operative who dies in the field and makes a deal with the devil so he can see his wife again. The deal leaves him with gaps in his memory and transforms him the newest unwitting pawn in the centuries-long battle between Heaven and Hell – and both sides have long since stopped playing by their own rules.

In addition to the tragic romance and epic religious plot threads, Spawn also squared off against street-level dirtbags and gang members, allowing McFarlane to draw more of the gritty version of New York’s streets and alleys from his run on Spider-Man. The early part of this run also included a timer counting down Spawn’s remaining “necroplasmic energy,” offering fans the tantalizing idea that the comic’s run was limited by how much power he used.

Over time, McFarlane considerably widened the scope of the series as it helped him launch a multimedia empire, including the founding of his still-successful high-end toy line.

Spawn is an impressively self-contained comic series. Though it has had many spinoffs, they are inessential to the core reading order that starts with issue #1 and continues past the record-breaking issue #301 – making it the longest-running creator-owned superhero comic. In that period, there is only a single one-shot – “Resurrection” – which must be integrated into the reading order to get the full story.

Where to Start Reading Spawn

There are four obvious jumping-on points:

Issue #1 – Start at the start! Despite the early part of Spawn’s series being very 90s in style, it’s also one of the best-executed representations of that style and it comes with tons of substance. Plus, issues #1-100 have the best and most-coherent reprint coverage of virtually any comic run ever published!

Issue #150 – Want to read Spawn as conceptualized by someone other than Todd McFarlane? Author David Hine takes over when McFarlane steps away, and the run begins with a big heaping of backstory recap and status quo reset. On the downside, you’ll be stuck reading in floppy or digitally, as this has never been reprinted.

Resurrection & Issue #251 – This is ostensibly a point to return to the title given that it’s the only time McFarlane has ever interrupted it for a non-sequential one-shot. However, having read it, it’s a bit dry and dependent on your existing affection for the character.

Issues #296-297 – Want to jump into the the highly-energized run that returned Spawn to the top of the sales charts? This pair of issues are a complete history of the story so far (or, at least, the bits that still matter) with annotations to explain where the plot beats originally unfurled.

Spawn (1992) #1 – present

[CBDB]

Spawn (1992) #1-125 by Todd McFarlane & Greg Capullo
(with Brian Holguin [#71-149] et al)

Spawn (1992) #1

Spawn’s initial 11 year run was written or co-written almost entirely by Todd McFarlane, with pencils by McFarlane and Greg Capullo on all but nine of the first 100 issues. This initial decade and change is considered the core of “classic” Spawn and as such it has been collected in many formats!

McFarlane pencils solo through issue #15, at which point art duties are taken over by Greg Capullo, with McFarlane returning on #21-24, co-pencilling #26-34 & 50 with Capullo (and frequently contributing to inks).

Marc Silvestri pencils #25 as part of Image X-Month, though McFarlane still scripts given the density of the series continuity by that point. Tony Daniel pencils #38, 40, 42, 44, 46, & 48, alternating with Capullo. Dwayne Turner pencils #76-77. Angel Medina takes over art duties with #101 (and continues through #150).

Issue #10 was written by Dave Sims and is frequently omitted from collected editions because it depicts Marvel and DC characters in cameo.

Alan Moore co-writes issue #8 (and later co-writes #37), introducing Vindicator. Neil Gaiman writes issue #9 (and later co-writes #26), which introduces Angela and Medieval Spawn. Issue #11 was written by Frank Miller. Grant Morrison writes the arc from #16-18, and Andrew Grossberg #19-20. Julia Simmons co-writes #38. Steve Niles co-writes #100 & 105-106.

This original trade paperback line ran with painted covers starting with volume four (and with reprints of the first three editions) to appeal to the Sandman-oriented bookstore audience. [Buy this series digitally]

Before #1: YoungBlood Strikefile #1-3: See Youngblood (eventually). Originally, the six imprints of the Image universe were much more closely tied together. At that time, Chapel – a Youngblood character – had specific ties to Spawn’s origin as Al Simmons. Simmons cameos here in this origin of Chapel.

#1-5:Vol. 1: Beginnings (1995 paperback, ISBN 978-1887279505)
This volume was originally issued with a standard comic cover and the same title (ISBN 978-1887279017) and also in the UK as “Creation” (both paperback ISBN 978-1852868284 and hardcover ISBN 978-1840234206)

#6-11:Vol. 2 Dark Discoveries (1996 paperback, ISBN 978-1887279536)
Painted cover version may omit #10 due to the cameos of Marvel characters.. This volume was originally issued with a standard comic cover and the same title (ISBN 978-1887279185) and also in the UK as “Evolution” (ISBN 978-1852868291)

#12-15:Vol. 3 (1996 paperback, ISBN 978-1887279543)
This volume was also issued with a standard comic cover in the UK as “Revelation” (ISBN 978-1852868307)

Spawn-Batman (1994) One-Shot (A.K.A. The Red Scare) (Amazon)

This volume was also issued with a standard comic cover in the UK as “Confrontation” (ISBN 978-1852868321)

Spawn: Fan Edition (1996) #1-3: Not collected. Distributed polybagged with Overstreet’s FAN #16-18. Written by Beau Smith with pencils by C. Bradford Gorby. While this may fit earlier in chronology (it features a Norse version of Spawn), it relates to the Violator series and makes the most sense to read adjacent to that.

Youngblood #7-8 & 10: See Youngblood (eventually). “The Death of Chapel,” which is a lead-in to issue #27

#26-30:Vol. 6: Pathway to Judgement (1998 paperback, ISBN 978-1582400013)

Violator vs. Badrock (1995) #1-4: Violator vs. Badrock (1996 paperback, ISBN 978-1887279116)
While this may occur later in terms of Spawn’s series, it happens more or less directly after Violator for Violator.

#51-54:Vol. 12: Immortality (2001 paperback, ISBN 978-1582401980)

Spawn Collection, Vol. 1

November 26, 2014

I read these back in middle school and into high school. I went to Cosmic Comics one day and heard the clerk talking about these new Image comics. Spawn #1 was expensive, around $2.99, but I got it. And I got all the rest. Boy, I wish I didn't take those posters out!

These are excellent reads. I like how the story evolved even after McFarlane left and other writers and artists came in. I liked all the weird and fascinating characters introduced, even in the later issues, like the 60s and 70s.

I stopped reading Spawn around #100, although I may have a few issues up to around 120.

Good stuff, a real interesting and wonderful era in modern comic history.

Spawn! Spawn! Spawn!

I remember reading this exact collection about ten years ago. I really enjoyed it then and while time and experience have left me increasingly jaded, cynical, and uncompromisingly closed-minded there’s still a whole lot to find positive about Spawn in the here and now. While certainly not at the Olympian level of say Watchmen or Dark Knight Returns, Todd McFarlane’s nightmare world fantasy creation still has a lot going for it and definitely deserves the accolade: seminal. Sure, not all is glittering gold but varnish still feels fresh (almost) thirty years down the road.

A lot of good can be said of character development so let’s start there. Much like my beloved Punisher (only Ennis/Aaron runs plz), even though we’re thrust into the sequentially illustrated world of the ostensibly otherworldly realm of the comic, Frank Castle and his hell-spawned counterpart both retain a particularly visceral high level of believability. Even from underneath the opaque cowl of this anti-anti hero, Al Simmons can be seen to exhibit a strong sense of verisimilitude via expertly drawn illustrations of his face. Eliciting sympathy (and hopefully a dash of empathy) we are able to connect to his fully human side as shades of betrayal, vengeance, anger, and a whole host of emotions riddle their way across the pages.

Equally well developed characters which mostly feature ancillaries including: Simmons’ ex-wife Wanda, her new husband Terri, the bumbling detectives Sam and Twitch, and many more do a stupendous job to flesh out the world that McFarlane has built. Toss in a highly detailed reduplication of the New York cityscape and the story gets even more bodied. Only bogged down by verbose verbiage and duly (un-)necessary repetitions (“Hey! We gotta sell more comics,” they say) most everything clicks overall.

The action is great. And the dialogue, while a little underwhelming at times, generally moves the story along at a solid pace. So even with the occasional pitfalls and minor detriments that haven’t quite held up so well, McFarlane has crafted a story that feels sturdily grown from extant sources as well as his own (surprisingly thoughtful) original concoctions.

Did I mention that Alan Moore, Frank Miller, and Neil Gaiman (well not this collection due to a little copyright snare) all showed up on this too? While not their best works, still intriguing contributions to the Spawn mythos have been made.

Overall: still a worthy read almost three decades down the road.

3.5 stars. I loved the concept of Spawn both as a hero and as a series. An anti-hero whose powers, though formidable, are finite and we get to watch the powers run down as the series progresses. It was also nice to see a successful independent comic that could compete with the big boys.

3.25 stars. I’ve always knew who Spawn was, knew about that older movie and the gist of his back ground, just never read any of his books. So when this book came into my part time gig, I figured I’d get it and check it out. Pretty solid stuff. Todd’s art is great and the writing is solid. This could have gotten a higher score but issues #8 and #11 got a little wonky. But I look forward to reading the next volume as there where some things that had been building up throughout this book that looks like will all come to a head in the next book.

It was a pain to get through. I was hoping for, well, maybe not a new favourite series but at least something good and gripping since I've heard so much about "Spawn" - mostly how awesome it is, how unique, how cool. Point is: it wasn't. Volume 1 felt incredibly dated (I know it's from the early 90s but there are comics which have aged much, much better), the narrative was tedious and the story not particularly interesting. Perhaps it was simply a very poor beginning and "Spawn" gets better later but do I want to give it another chance? I'm not sure.

While I haven't read every issue of "Spawn", I was into the series in high school and my early college days. I just picked this "collection" to signify that I've read a good chunk of the run. I think I started around Issue 60 (or so) and got pretty close to Issue 100. I've read some random other issues here and there as well.

The movie is TERRIBLE. Avoid it at all costs. I'm hoping someone comes along and reboots it.

But the comic is pretty amazing. Some of the best artwork out there, and the story is fantastic.

I also highly recommend the spinoffs. Sam and Twitch is fantastic, and the other Spawn storylines (it's late and I'm tired, but I'm pretty sure they're called Spawn: Dark Ages and something else) were pretty badass as well.

Edited July 26, 2015

Spawn isn't a comic I trust myself to rate fairly one way or the other. I read these back when the series first started in '92 and loved it. Loved it.

I still love the premise, but am not sure how quickly I would overlook the flaws in dialogue or ham-fisted problem solving if I had come to this in my mid-thirties with a clean slate. But I may have also allowed the art and ideas to wash over the rough areas. I just don't know. So this is 4 stars from teenager me. Adult me is just along for the nostalgia.

FOR VIDEO REVIEW CLICK HERE - https://youtu.be/QNdx7-6OoRQ .. its the perfect place to start reading Spawn this has great Mcfarlene art. its a story about a former mercenary who has come back from the dead to watch his wife move on with her life with out him. he's cought in the middle of a lot of shady business all while trying to remember who he was & figure out why hi's here. this has a few different writters so some issues are a lot more dialogue heavy wish can ruin the pasting at times but its a good read overall . I give this a - 8/10

Early Spawn comics were amazing!!! Would give more than stars

Edited November 3, 2017Edited February 8, 2012

More amazing than a spiderman. More incredible than a hulk… SPAWN is one of the seminal comic books of the 90s. Conjured from the mind of Todd McFarlane, it’s an explosion of creativity, bursting with energy that bounces off the pages. Someone could be illiterate and still love it as a visual masterpiece. What Dante is to poetry, is what McFarlane is to illustrative art.

The story revolves around Al Simmons who is more or less a good guy in the eyes of society, a dutiful soldier, a Captain America type who dies and goes to hell because of the copious amounts of blood he spilled during his days as a soldier, always following the orders of the powers that be and never really thinking for himself. In Hell, Al makes a deal with the devil Malebolgia to come back to life on earth, so he can see his beloved wife again, but (there’s always a “but” with the devil) he has to assume the role of Hellspawn (aka Hell’s pawn) – a super powered corpse looking entity of demonic force. And in a cruel, twisted joke, Malebolgia returns him to earth five years after his death, only to find his wife now has a kid and is married to his former best friend. Oh the drama!
