BONUS REVIEW by GARY OWENS

This installment has excellent pencils from Khary Randolph and a fun story from Todd McFarlane. Todd has grown as a writer; I agree he’s probably still too heavy on flashy fight scenes, but he’s gotten better on small nuances in characterizations. The story itself, which finds the new Spawn trying to understand the Spawn universe—including being hounded by media and villains alike--while trying to rediscover his forgotten past, offers engaging plotting, as each step logically goes to the next, which helped make it a pleasure to read, even if it is fairly clichéd. Todd’s inks on the cover are a bit heavy, but it’s better in the comic itself. And the credits are written in black over a dark green background. Honestly, my eyes hurt trying to read them, and it was frustrating. Still, minor complaining aside, I find it surprising to be talking about #200 for this character. Todd saw a market place others couldn’t get, and it’s great to see his work still around.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
