In a reflection of the disappointment that Spawn failed to complete its story-telling at #100, the fans voted with their pockets. After nearly a decade in the Top 10 Comics Preorder List, Spawn lost its position on one black February 2001 when it exits the Top 10 and went on a freefall. By end of the year, it was not even in the Top 20.

The final issue to be penned by Bendis and featuring a cute Loch Ness Spawn poster plus...
that of Genghis Khan the Spawn. He has been mentioned since #1 but it is only in #5 that a drawing of him appeared.
