The book starts with two issues dealing with The Curse, the 2nd one more with Wanda confronting Spawn. The next issue deals with child abuse and the next with racism. I wouldn't say just because they deal with real world problems or would say they were 2 great issues but the stories were definitely a step up in writing from previous volumes. We end with 2 issues of Spawn taking on a new host to the Anti-Spawn powers, but who is now called The Redeemer.
Overall I recommend it.

Finally, the main Spawn series has begun to hit its stride. Everything in this book is a step up from Volume 4 - the art, the writing and most importantly the characterization. Although issue 28 starts out in a rough spot (McFarlane even explicitly tells you how ironic he's being, uuuggghhh) the series immediately picks up in issue 29. Earlier volumes were incredibly cheesy and took themselves way too seriously. The most successful story arcs were those that utilized fantastic
We begin this volume with a visit from The Curse. There is a battle between the two, but Spawn pins him to a wall- this is the last you see of him because then Wanda shows up and interacts with Spawn. The artwork as they stand face to face was phenomenal!

The next issue, Spawn has been injured in a battle with Heaven. Unfortunately this is not seen so as I read the entire volume, I had to put a few things together. I wish that a few of the issues that included these battles were included because
