Comic Book Reviews


Dave reviews the latest issue of Image Comics’ GUNSLINGER SPAWN, available now in print and on digital where all good comics are sold.



Gunslinger Spawn #5 (Image Comics)

Gunslinger Spawn #8 is published by Image Comics, written by Todd McFarlane and illustrated by Brett Booth.

Issue #8 is available now either directly from Image Comics online or from your local comic book store, digital copies will be available to download from the usual content providers.


As Gunslinger comes to terms with his new life in the present day, a revelation from his past will threaten to destroy his future.


In this issue we see Gunslinger Spawn and She Spawn just laid talking on a grassey hill in their human form, Gunslinger is struggling to come to terms with the fact they are now in modern day times, he needs to get to Spawn but as expected the path isn’t straight forward as he encounters a being from his past one that he thought was left well and truly behind posing as a human but Gunslinger sees behind the façade and with that an epic fight ensues.

Gunslinger asks the question why is he easy to track? Maybe this is a question for Spawn but he needs to find out and pronto, but an interesting invitation may be a better solution.

Once again Todd McFarlane has supplied a story that captivates from the first sentence, each book I’ve read of his has been in one sitting, once you begin reading the word around you just doesn’t matter you are instantly transported into the Spawn universe and taken on a mesmerising journey that you don’t want to stop.

Brett Booth has this time kept with the usual and almost trademark Spawn style when it comes to illustrations but this issue feels more realism has gone into the detail as it looks more defined and intricate, each page built the excitement levels further leaving me begging for the next issue.


A series that can’t be faulted, each issue is a top mark production and definitely one of my favourite Spawn characters, I literally am excited to see how this arc progresses further, a definite must read for any Spawn fans.
