    Two LCSs near me have tons of King Spawn #1s sitting on the shelves. The shop owners said no one is buying them - while the main Spawn book sells decently.
    So you have a very weak overall story and horrible writing - this is not going to carry 4 books for long.

    Yeah, this was the vibe for Al all issue. I know Spawn has always been a melodramatic series, but it makes it more difficult to buy the seriousness of what's going on, when Spawn is acting like a petulant toddler. Especially when that's a side of him that only seems to be whipped out whenever some internal conflict needs to be fabricated to ratchet up the stakes. The tension at Spawn HQ for the past few issues has felt pretty contrived.

    I just went to my LCS and dropped 200 bucks getting all my books for the past three-four months in my box that I hadn’t had a chance to get (60 percent of them were Spawn abs all the alternate covers). Finally read Spawn issues 318-321, Spawn Universe and King Spawn issue 1.

    Honestly, Spawn Universe was the only thing I reallllllly enjoyed, for two of its stories. The Jessica story, and the Haunt story. King Spawn was enjoyable, but honestly, that could have just been called Spawn Universe issue 2, the way it was laid out, with the multiple stories in it.

    Spawn 320 and 321, especially 321? 321? That was a hot mess.

    Exactly! This felt like the perfect issue to air out what has been going on and figure out a plan forward for Team Spawn as you have Al being aware that Marc worked with Downing to get Overt-Kill/Cy-Gor/Freak/Curse out of the base and into Downing's hands, you have Jessica being the only one interested in finding out who killed Nyx for some odd reason, Jessica has also been investigating some of the blips as Marc finds them out, Redeemer is doing who knows what, Marc having weird dreams about Medieval Spawn's past although this one seems like we'll get some development soon if the ending is anything go by, Al mentioned the island where they fought Omega now in the hands of Jericho/Disruptor had another blip of interest plus you had Plague Spawn there, and you have Marc/Jessica almost having a vote of no confidence with Al which I don't blame them. Instead, we get a nothing issue and not much of anything of interest as a hook going forward as "the shadow players" is the vaguest term possible for no-name bad guys.

    So Sean Lewis is doing King Spawn and Scorched while Todd's got the mainline Spawn book and Gunslinger Spawn. Pretty interesting though I wish Ales Kot stuck around with Gunslinger and not just the backups for the first issue as he can be an interesting and different voice. Also, I hope Todd makes statues of some of Bjorn's covers because Bjorn's process seems perfect to do that.

    King Spawn 1 sold over a half a million orders. I'm sure it's going to do fine. I think a lot of people are really excited about Spawn and all its comics right now
