THE WINTER KING Part I
Last year, fans of dark fantasy were treated to Spawn: Godslayer, a
sweeping tale of ancient magic, fallen kingdoms and doomed love. Now,
that dramatic re-imagining of Todd McFarlane’s landmark creation
Spawn debuts with a monthly series of its own.
In the world of Ur, there are countless Gods, great and small, who
rule over the lands of men. Out of the mists of Chaos emerges an
unstoppable marauder – the Godslayer, a powerful being sent to hunt
down and kill the very Gods themselves.
Picking up where the one-shot ended, Bairn, the Godslayer, returns to
his shadowy fortress where he is haunted by the ghost of his murdered
lover, Neva. There, Neva learns of the dread curse that brought her
beloved to his doom, and the true nature of his servitude. But before
all her questions can be answered, the Godslayer is sent on the trail
of his next target: a brutal tyrant God called the Winter King.
An absolute must-read for fans of epic fantasy like Elric, Lord of
the Rings, WoW and Conan.
