Spawn #280 opens immediately after #279 ends with Cyan frozen in time as she witnesses the death of Yoko’s father. Tapping into her anger and despair, Cyan unlocks a power of her own that she uses to escape.
Spawn doesn’t do much in this issue besides kill which is fine considering this arc is still clearly building up for Cyan to become a supernatural force. Although Spawn’s presence would probably be more than helpful to Cyan instead of attempting to send her out of Japan. Her powers aren’t quite comprehensible at the moment since she doesn’t quite remember the details of her escape and one minute she’s on a plane headed to the U.S. but the next she’s back in Japan. I’m still wondering whether or not Cyan will become the new Spawn or will she fight alongside him?
There seems to be a lot to look forward to as the next issue begins to close the ‘Dark Horror’ arc of Spawn in December. — Pierre Brown
