Spawn #221 Sells Out as McFarlane Returns
Spawn #220 celebrated the series’ twentieth year of publication with creator Todd McFarlane‘s name appearing once more in the writing and covers credits but the celebration continues as Spawn #221 has sold out at the distributor level the same week as it was released and the story takes a new turn and a new tone.
Jim Downing, the newest Hellspawn, has been a man without a past and with a future that is out of his control. However, as SPAWN delves deeper into his story, Jim will begin to embrace his powers, encounter old enemies, and uncover the secrets that lie at the center of the circles of Hell.
Throughout the year, McFarlane will create homage covers to some of the most iconic issues in comics history — those already revealed include Savage Dragon #1 (cover B of Spawn #220), Youngblood #1 (cover C of Spawn #220), and The Walking Dead #1 (Spawn #223). The interior art is by Szymon Kudranski. Spawn #222 is will be in stores on August 8.
