Reading progress update: I've read 8%.

Hellspawn: The Complete Collection - Brian Michael Bendis, Ashley Wood, Steve Niles, Ben Templesmith, Bill Sienkiewicz

Ok I'm on it, first issue done.

Thanks to Kate (you're a star) for joining in and Grim a bit later.

 

My first thought, the artwork is just the kind of thing I like, dark and dirty. There's no clean lines and panels this is raw and really edgy. Love it.

 

And Ben Templesmith (one of my faves) does the artwork for issues 10-16.

Ashley Wood is issues 1-9 and to be honest he's every bit as good as Temp. I have flicked forward to the latter issues just to check the artwork, this is gonna be wicked. Hopefully some of the backstory comes in soon.

 

There's two side narrators Hertz and Fastbender, not sure who they are yet maybe the history will come via them. The Clown is pretty disturbing, pretty awesome.
