STORY: TODD McFARLANE & BRIAN HOLGUIN
ART / COVER: CLAYTON CRAIN

32 PAGES / FC / T+

What if the MOST DANGEROUS man on Earth was also the one trying to do the MOST GOOD?

The world is real. The people are normal. And then he appears!

A man appears with no background, no memory, and no place to call home. But he has powers. Powers that seem resemble those we learned about in Sunday School. Could it be?! Is it possible that this man is much, much more than that? Is it possible that he is our "SAVIOR" in the flesh? And if he is, then why doesn't he know who he is or how he got his powers?

Strip away the spandex and trappings of the traditional comic superhero and ask yourself the simple question of, "How would I react if GOD suddenly appeared in front of me, but everything we had been taught about him seem out of whack?" What you would have left, beyond your own doubts, is the presence of a man who has to deal with the fact that his appearance in the world is seen as both a blessing and a curse.

Some will see him as a hero; a messiah. Other will see him as an enemy because there isn't room for a person with god-like powers to disrupt the status quo of what we already believe. Some will rally behind him. Others will denounce him. But none of us will be able to ignore him.

NEW TEAM! NEW DIRECTION!
The return of Al Simmons, and the start of a brand new era for SPAWN!
No one quite knows where Al’s been all this time, but it’s clear he’s come back a changed man. Wiser, stronger, and with the memories from an experience that’s he’s still struggling to understand. Tucked away in a crime-ridden corner of New York City, he’s beginning to forge new alliances, preparing defenses, and testing out his newly acquired powers... because there’s a battle coming, and it’s something that makes the Heaven/Hell thing seem like a petty squabble. So just who did Al piss off so badly while he was away?
Introducing a bold new direction for SPAWN, as creator TODD McFARLANE hands the reins over to BRIAN WOOD (Star Wars, X-Men, DMZ) and JONBOY (Marvel Adventures, Araña). It all starts right here, and continues next month in SPAWN #251!

STARVE #1
STORY: BRIAN WOOD
ART / COVER: DANIJEL ZEZELJ & DAVE STEWART

32 PAGES / FC / M

UTENSILS DOWN, HANDS UP! WELCOME TO STARVE!

Once the world's most famous chef, Gavin Cruikshank's been in a self-imposed exile for years. His little foodie television program has since evolved into STARVE, an arena sport that pits chef against chef for the pleasure of their super-rich patrons. It's a stain on a once-noble profession, and Chef Gavin is ready to go to war to stop it. Two things stand in his way: his arch rival Roman Algiers, and his adult daughter Angie, who probably just wants her dad back and acting normal.

Whipsmart world-building and a creative dream team (DMZ, The Massive, Star Wars, Loveless, Hellboy, The Sandman) come together for a brand new monthly series!

STRAY BULLETS: SUNSHINE & ROSES #1
story / ART / COVER: DAVID LAPHAM

32 PAGES / BW / M

STRAY BULLETS CONTINUES WITH THE BEGINNING OF A BRAND-NEW ARC OF STORIES!
SUNSHINE AND ROSES is about violence, love, and really bad decisions. The Baltimore underworld is falling apart at the seams and blood has been spilt. Where and when things went to hell in a handbasket can be traced back to a time a few years earlier, when a man named Harry ran the city, Spanish Scott and Monster enforced the rules, and an insecure young man named Orson met a wild and crazy girl named Beth. The two together cooked up the boldest, most outlandish, and just about the stupidest plan ever devised—a plan to steal a whole lot of Harry's money and drugs and get a little revenge along the way.

While every issue of STRAY BULLETS presents a complete story, the start of each new arc is the perfect place to jump on board and see what everybody else is talking about.
