Javi Fernandez’s has put together quite a bit of impressive art throughout this series. But, King Spawn #7 may be his best work yet. From the first page where Spawn’s epic cape consumes the scene to the craziness ensues with Psalms 137 later in the issue, this is an epically violent issue.

Throughout all the craziness, Sean Lewis continues to connect Spawn’s past to the present perfectly. There’s a lot to Al Simmons’ history, and it can be hard to keep everything straight. That’s one of several reasons King Spawn has become the best of the four Spawn titles so quickly.
Each title has cool art, but King Spawn has the most compelling story. Plus, it’s perfect for readers who are new to Spawn. And that carries over into King Spawn #7. Because if you’re new to Spawn, you might know Wanda is very important to Al Simmons, but there’s a lot more to it. Lewis and Fernandez provide greater detail about her history and her significance to both Al and Terry, all while moving the current story another step forward and building up Psalms 137.
If you’re only going to pick up one Spawn book of the four produced monthly, this is the one you have to pick up. It’s the most complete title and one of the best books out there.
