Twitch is able to break free from his captor, the Freak, when he is distracted by Spawns sudden appearance. Then, as Sam, Twitch and Spawn struggle together to stop the slaughter in the alley, they feel their curious bond intensifying. However, they are puzzled when Spawn becomes ineffective in a certain area of the alley called the dead zone. Discovering that the Freak has slipped away, Spawn tracks him down and unleashes the worms and insects on him until he is drowned by their mass. Earlier in the day, Wanda again witnesses Cyan's psychotic behavior over losing her soother and necklace out the car window. 32 pages, FC. NOTE: This issue is dedicated to Archie Goodwin.
