    Gunslinger Spawn #21 is a fast and furious team-up with links to recent events in The Scorched. It features dinosaurs, the Clown and his minions, and Violator. It’s frustrating that it starts with such an epic battle, goes back in time to show the planning stages, and ends before events in the opening pages. Still, all the Spawn books are frustrating, as they always leave you wanting to know more.

    Comical Opinions

    GUNSLINGER SPAWN #21 sets up a climactic battle between demons from Hell and dinosaurs(?), and it looks even cooler than it sounds. That said, this issue feels like a breather to build the relationship between Dakota, Taylor, and the Cowboy, which is a good jumping-on point for new readers but a momentum killer for existing readers.

    It’s a simple story and a pretty fast issue to read, but 100% worth taking your time to appreciate Brett Booth’s awesome art. I’m happy to say that McFarlane is still enjoying himself writing this comic. Long may it continue!

    Not everything works. Some of the costuming is remarkably silly. As beautiful as it is, so much of Gunslinger Spawn #21 is so repetitious that it could have been easily edited down to half an issue. The interplay between demons and dinosaurs and time travel and magic and gunplay could really find a way to come together brilliantly, but it would take a more clever sense of thematic modulation than McFarlane is attempting. There have been moments over the course of the series thus far that seem to have been reaching for something bigger. Its consistently disappointing to see McFarlane fail to live up to the potential of the premises weirdness.
