Series Premiere. Your fan-favorite detectives are back in their new ongoing series, Sam and Twitch: Case Files. From the world of Spawn, acclaimed creator Todd McFarlane and artist Szymon Kudranski bring you a tale of murder, intrigue, and deception in this noir crime drama.

In Sam and Twitch: Case Files #1, Todd McFarlane takes us back to the gritty, noir-infused streets of his Spawn universe, focusing this time on the dynamic duo of detectives, Sam and Twitch. Released on March 27th, 2024, this premiere issue marks the beginning of an exciting ongoing series, illustrated with atmospheric flair by Szymon Kudranski and adorned with a striking cover by Kevin Keane.

McFarlane, renowned for his imaginative storytelling in the realm of comics, showcases his prowess once again by delving into the dark underbelly of crime and corruption. While Spawn often takes center stage in his narratives, “Sam and Twitch: Case Files” shifts the spotlight to these compelling characters who have captivated readers with their complex personalities and unwavering dedication to justice.

The narrative unfolds with a gripping tale of murder, intrigue, and deception, mirroring the gritty realism of classic noir crime dramas. McFarlane’s writing deftly navigates the intricacies of the investigative process, immersing readers in a world where nothing is as it seems and danger lurks around every corner. Fans of the duo will find themselves drawn deeper into their world, while newcomers will be intrigued by the depth of their characters and the mysteries they unravel.

Szymon Kudranski’s illustrations breathe life into the shadows, capturing the essence of the urban landscape with a blend of gritty realism and stylized flair. His attention to detail enhances the atmosphere of suspense and danger, while Kevin Keane’s cover art sets the tone for the series with its bold and evocative imagery.

As a fan of Sam and Twitch myself, I found “Case Files #1” to be a welcome return to form for these iconic characters. While familiarity with the Spawn universe enriches the experience, McFarlane ensures that the story stands on its own, inviting readers into a world where justice is a hard-fought battle and the line between good and evil is razor-thin. With its compelling narrative and striking visuals, “Sam and Twitch: Case Files” promises to be a must-read for fans of noir crime fiction and fans of old time comic book pulp detective stories.

Sam and Twitch: Case Files #1 is available on our new comic book wall and can be placed on your weekly pull list.
