So much better than the movie!
2 June 2000 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

The movie was one of the worst I had seen in my life. I did not have high hope for the animated series but I was very much surprised. The dialogue and, bizarrely enough, the acting are a hundred times as good as the film and the plot and characters are also much more intriguing.

Sadly production ended before the 4th season of Spawn and it just seemed to be getting darker and darker. But the one thing I can be sure of from this is that it's going to have one hell of a send-off when the entire story finally climaxes (if HBO ever bring it back, which they should!!!)

I'd start watching this if I were you. But be prepared. The violence is quite graphic.
