Presenting an untold tale from Spawn's dark past, written by comics legend Alan Moore, which provides essential background to Todd McFarlane's epic Spawn saga. Have you ever wonder what happened to The Curse between his appearances in Spawn: Retribution and Spawn: Abduction? Well, he fell prey to Heartless John, Monster-Hunter. That's right, Monster-Hunter, and guess who he's stalking now! But that's not Spawn's only problem. It seems his living costume has suddenly developed a taste for blood, preferably still in its original human container! It's all here, in this much-requested "missing chapter" from the Spawn story.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
