Spawn recently broke the Guinness World Record for the longest-running creator-run comic at over 300 issues. The comicbook follows a CIA agent killed by his boss, then sent to hell until he made a bargain to become an undead hellspawn. Now, the titular Spawn has become a sort of protestor of New York City, as he tries to retain his humanity.
Sam & Twitch is a spin-off series that focuses on Spawn's two most popular human characters, the detectives Sam Burke and “Twitch” Williams.
It is unknown where Sam & Twitch will premiere or who will be involved beyond the aforementioned people.
