Spawn, guided by a mysterious figure, continues his journey through Hell towards the vacant throne. Unfortunately, he may be too late!
We start this issue with Spawn deep in thought as Wanda rests by his side, his thoughts are riddled with suspicions and doubt as he begins to process the reasons for the appearance of Wanda, after all this time of searching for her to mysteriously appear it seems very strange to say the least.
The doubts begin to grow as Spawn begins to suspect of Wanda has been planted to slow Spawn down or even if she actually exists, Wanda claims she is here to help Spawn and put him on the right path – but is that path right for Spawn?
Al has always hoped for a chance at rekindling his love with his true love, the woman he only ever loved this is the light that kept him going in the darkest of days but we begin to discover that the feelings may not be on a two way street.
Are these feelings a distraction for Spawn? He must get to the throne before Sin or anyone else for that matter and if he decides to go with Wanda or alone it’s a choice he needs to make and fast, time is running out.
The race for Hell’s Throne has been one of the multi title stories that I have thoroughly enjoyed for the past few months and as it reaches it conclusion the series is as good as it has ever been, Todd McFarlane has taken the helm once again with the writing and he brings a story that explodes the emotions of Spawn and what drives him or even hinders him to get to his goal.
The ending of this series is one that I have been anticipating for a long time and the closer it gets the more the anticipation builds and I can honestly say I can’t figure out which way it will go – will Spawn get the throne or not? You just can’t put a finger on it.
The illustrations of the book from Javi Fernandez have a depth that injects the dark emotional energy that allows the emotional story to be told and gives the reader an emotional connection to the characters.as you can visually see the emotional journey that Spawn is on both internally and externally.
The Race for Hell’s Throne has been a series that I have thoroughly enjoyed, each book has gripped me and now we are getting to the climax we still can’t see the outcome we hope good can prevail over evil but it’s not looking good.
