Spawn is still cool. There’s no denying that at all. And he hit at the perfect time. But what happens when you get this character who has literally emerged from the depths of Hell into the scariest environment known to man: early PS1 3D gaming?
Listen in as Andrew Reiner from Game Informer and the new show The Spectacular Comic Book Podcast comes on the show to help take a look at Spawn the Eternal for the PS1. The game exists, and that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Spawn was an interesting character for me growing up, and I’ll bet I’m not the only one. I could recognize him no problem. I’m pretty sure I knew that he was a comic character. But I couldn’t have told you anything about him besides things that you could guess from his appearance.
Listen in as Adam Higgins from Odd Dad Out comes to reminisce about a childhood idea of Spawn and the hilarity of having an E rated Spawn game.
Even without reading comics growing up, my friends and I always knew about Spawn. Or at least that he existed. Not that we really knew anything about him. But come on, look at the guy! How can he not be cool? Listen in as author and comic writer BJ Mendelson comes to talk not only Spawn as a character but also the fascinating real life origin story of the comic and how this is possibly the most 90s thing that ever 90s-ed.
