It has been a long, arduous road for creator Todd McFarlane and his benchmark “SPAWN” monthly since its inception so many years ago. The story has weathered its fair share of controversies, lawsuits from hockey players, and a terrible Hollywood adaptation, but all of that has lead to a very star-studded 200th issue which went on sale everywhere yesterday. Beyond the break you can check out the 5 page preview of the issue and get all the details. Read on for the skinny!
