Appearing in "Appearances"
Plot Synopsis for "Appearances"
Later, Spawn climbs Terran Affairs Headquarters. Inside, Rafael prepares to meet her angel bosses to see her in the new position. Spawn breaks in through the window and holds Rafael's boss, who said to call her Mary, hostage. In exchange he wants Bobby back.
Spawn bluffs and holds a Necroplasm bomb around Mary's head and says they have to a count of 5 to tell him where Bobby is. Rafael gives at the last second, and has Orbital Angel Station send him down even though their experiments are not complete on him yet.
Spawn collapses and Cogliostro tells Bobby not to worry, he's only resting.
In the Terran Affairs Headquarters, tensions are high as Rafael is quick to blame others and claim it wasn't her fault for being infiltrated. The angel calling herself Mary, says she let it happen. The defenses were for people who were non-believers or those that had evil in their hearts. Spawn came to save his friend. Mary says she allowed this to happen and very clearly neither side is ready for conflict.

Plot Synopsis for "Bloodfeud: Preludes and Nocturnes"
After being crucified in the Bowery Alleyways, The Curse continues to be tortured and coerced by monster hunter John Sansker into claiming that Spawn drank the blood of children. The Curse eventually finds his way free as Sansker turns his attention towards Spawn.
After his costume recovers, Spawn invades Heaven's terran headquarters. He demands Bobby's release, threatening an oddly powerful old lady with death if he's not heeded. Luckily, the threat works. The Redeemer pursues them, but this time, Spawn transports Bobby and himself away from the fight and into the alleyways.
- Notes, it's recommended you read Spawn: Blood Feud Vol 1 after this story and before Spawn Vol 1 33.
- With the back-up story titled “Preludes & Nocturnes,” it is presumably a joke aimed at Alan Moore disciple Neil Gaiman whose ponderous dark fantasy Sandman series would have been the belle of the “sophisticated suspense” comics ball of the mid-1990s mainstream. “Preludes & Nocturnes” was the subtitle of the Sandman trade paperback that compiled the first half-year of stories from the series. Alan Moore’s “Preludes & Nocturnes” are a bit more savage, and ultra-violent, and about as far away from the sensitive and thoughtful fantasy of Sandman as you can get.
- This issue was dedicated to Todd's wife, Wanda Kolomyjec.
