Spawn #26

by Todd McFarlane & Greg Capullo

"The Dark"
Dedicated To: Dave Sim

That is why, after a very long and difficult deliberation, I've decided to remove her from your care and put her in a new set of circumstances. This, I believe, is for her own good.

You torture yourself for answers that, mostly, you've been given. You're just not trying hard enough. Much as I'm tempted to write you off, you do show some spark.

Call me Gabrielle, Mr. Simmons. If I might have a moment of your time, I really would like to talk to you.
 

Bloodstrike #4-10 (1993)

by Rob Liefeld & Dan Fraga & Eric Stephenson & & various

It's been a long time coming, Battlestone, but it looks like we're finally gonna get the chance to settle our differences once and for all-- brother to brother!
 

Bloodstrike: Brutalists #23 (2018)

by Michel Fiffe

Arms, eyes, surgically removed... prolonged state of anesthesia... medical field... official capacity or independent study... Test subjects? Sex slaves? Young women-- girls-- barely out of high school. Brenda will be a senior soon.

Youngblood #7-8 & 10 (1992)

by Rob Liefeld with Eric Stephenson, Danny Miki & Jonathan Sibal

He shot Bobby-- blew his head clean OFF!

As a man who has literally been to hell and back, there is precious little that frightens Al Simmons these days. This, however, comes close. This is the man who killed him. Emerging from the smoke and shadows, he looks like the devil himself, the ghastly white skull he chose long ago as his trademark eerily incandescent in the moonlight. A none-too-subtle reminder of what has passed between these two men... and the unholy bond they share.

It wasn't until later I figured out everything for myself in one divine moment of clarity-- if you had really come back from the dead, then so could I! Thing with me though, Al-- I could care less about love and happiness. You can have that crap. I've got bigger plans for my return-- plans that will change everything... forever.
