Spawn #221 Page Sample #1

Jim Downing is a man possessed by a hellish power he cannot control, by a heavenly secret he doesn't understand, and by an unstoppable drive to piece together the mystery that is his lost past. Balancing the deadly realities of his secret life as the world's newest Hellspawn with the worldwide media frenzy as a new messiah for the Digital Age, Jim begins to embrace his abilities like never before. This all leads to a showdown with a classic Spawn adversary...

The standard color editions didn't have a very large distribution and it was unlikely that many retailers would have ordered 25 or more. The 1:25 variants are quite pricey with a raw version in near mint coming in at $200 or more and a CBCS/CGC 9.8 would set you back over $400, in late October 2019.
