Spawn was sort of at it's height in the early-mid 90s.

It may be great, but I think a lot of people felt like it was repetitive and moved on.

Spawn, altogether, is a horrible book. I stayed on board way to long.

Never really like Spawn. What was the whole thing with Downing anyway?

I read issues 1-100 on the internet. When i started to buy comics i picked spawn up at issue 211. Missed simmons blowing his head off and everything unfortunately. Definitely liked the Simmons spawn more. This book is kinda blah, still follow it today tho. Spawn is my favorite super hero.

In recent issues it is revealed that Jim Downings is an angel that tried to kill God, this makes him a little more powerful than Simmons
