    Spawn [24]

    Expectation Reviews   
    Its amazing the change in comics over my short life time. When I started collecting it was Marvel versus DC. We would battle as to who was best, Spiderman, X-men, Thor, Superman, Batman, Green Lantern et al. Then came the golden age of Independents. People who DARED to publish comics outside the influence of the big two. (Yeah there were always a few of indies that were there before, like Cerebus, but it really exploded in the 80's) Dark Horse, Nikotat, First Comics, and many others that are no longer with us. But the "ultimate sin" was when Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee and several other writers/artists went their own way and started Image Comics. How could these young studs compete? Because they could draw AND write. And they wanted control of their creations. They proved what I have always maintained. That itís the writer and the artist that people REALLY like. The famous character is just bonus.

    Spawn has lead the way since the group's "defection". Now making its way to full feature movie. Movies have not been kind to comic book crossovers. Batman is the only break out hit from many to have failed. (Interestingly only the Marvel Movies have outright bombed.)

    If you are a big Spawn fan, go check it out. If you are not, I'd skip it. Spawn is a niche taste and not for the main stream or the queasy stomach. I suspect that there will be a few mothers and fathers that will be shocked to hear what their kids have just seen. Don't bring the little kids, even if they've seen the comic book before. Don't bring a date. This will be definitely a guy flick. Grab your buddies, have a few beers over the pool table and check the movie out. {AB}
