Gunslinger Spawn and Ninja Spawn On Covers Of #310… But That's All

He may be on the cover of Spawn #310, which caused all sorts of folks to go all-of-a-quiver. But that's where Gunslinger Spawn stays. Not even a Ninja Spawn either. Unless he is hiding in plain sight.

I hope 120,000 people aren't disappointed. Instead, the insides continue the tale of a world beset with a mysterious virus, looking at the people trying to cure it. I wonder where Todd McFarlane got that idea from? And we meet those who are working on a vaccine in Holland – and who succeed, somehow, without any trials on a human population. Which is handy.

Not that everyone will believe it. The three talking media heads are ever-present, as they have been for almost thirty years now, and Brock 'The Shock' Fennel who was exposed as a demon in recent issues, is doubling down that people shouldn't take this vaccine. Or wear masks. And that the whole thing is a conspiracy., Which, to be fair, in the Spawn universe it very well may be.

If your neighbours are acting normally, don't trust them, it's a sign they have been cloned? To be honest, that's not the most whackdoodle concept you've been confronted with in recent months, is it?
