Realizing that there is no one he can fully trust, Jim sets out on his own, growing increasingly paranoid and desperate for answers regarding his identity.

Spawn: Architects of Fear
Story: Arthur Clare
Art & cover Aleksi Briclot
From the creative team that brought you Spawn Simony comes this new original Spawn graphic novel fully painted by one of the world's premiere artists.
An elite group of Angels, known as the Caste of Architects, needs the help of Spawn to retrieve one of their living weapons that has gone amok, the Horsaak-El. For centuries this "weapon" has been absorbing the souls of the damned to keep them from joining the armies of Hell, but now it is preying on the souls of the innocent. To ensure Spawn's cooperation, one of the Caste have placed his brother, Marc, in the weapon's path.
Spawn: Architects of Fear also features a behind-the-scenes section, with additional art and commentary about this long-anticipated project.
