I kind of dropped off around issue 200 back when it first came out so I'm not very familiar with the Jim Downing storyline. I've been kicking myself ever since because I missed out on a lot of those coverswipes, but I happened to have this TPB laying around so I was able to get caught up on the story a little bit at least. New Beginnings collects Issues 201-206 following Downing's early struggles with his new-found abilities as a Hellspawn and also managing life in the limelight as a global phenomenon. I also did some non-Spawn related reading (gasp!) with this Drifter TPB I picked up for $2. Pretty cool sci-fi with incredible artwork.👌👌
Granddaughter: How do you know he's still alive?
Kim: I don't know, not for sure. But I believe he is. You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes, you can still catch me dancing in it.
