Trivia

Overt-Kill was originally conceived during an episode of "The Comic Book Greats", a direct-to-video talk show about comic book artists and writers hosted by Stan Lee. In an episode, Stan Lee gave Todd McFarlane and Rob Liefeld the name "Overkill" and told them to make a character that would best suit the name. Overkill was changed to Overt-Kill for the Spawn comics possibly due to the original being trademarked since the name was being considered for a movie. See more »

So much better than the movie!

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.
