King Spawn is always in contention for comic of the week whenever it comes out. Sean Lewis has done an excellent job revisiting the character’s history while also pushing the new story forward. It’s great for new Spawn readers and old, especially since Al Simmons’ history can get a bit confusing. And of course, Javier Fernandez brings the heat every issue. But there’s no question this is the best work these two have done together.

Fresh off the crazy black, white and red issue, Lewis and Fernandez turn their focus back to Simmons, whose blood has been boiling to new levels of late. He’s so close to getting back what he wants most, but it’s taking far too long for his liking. We can feel that rage with every single panel. Spawn moves with the unrelenting precision as he kicks the absolute tar out of his latest victim.
And there’s purpose to it. It’s not action for the sake of action — same goes for the dialgoue. Things have been a bit more out of control for Spawn than usual, and this is the moment where he lets all that frustration out.
King Spawn #11 everything you want from a Spawn book, and a reminder why it’s one of the best titles out there.
Honorable Mention: Seven Sons #1 – Devil’s HIghway Vol. 2 #2 – Eight Billion Genies #2 – Radiant Black #15
