Spawn’s Universe Reveals!
Beginning in June, Todd McFarlane officially releases the beginning of his new “world-building” universe. Nearly 30 years in the making, the highly anticipated Spawn’s Universe #1 is set to visually expand with a reveal of some of the stunning artwork by superstar artists Brett Booth, Jim Cheung, McFarlane and colorist FCO. McFarlane takes on the writing duties for this inaugural book that will be the launchpad to build a bigger multi-character, interconnected comic book universe based around his top-selling monthly Spawn comic.
Spawn’s Universe #1 will be available with several variant covers. Most prominently, featuring the extraordinary artwork of J. Scott Campbell, who will be doing a set of four covers, each depicting one of the major characters who will be making the biggest impact in all the 2021 comic titles McFarlane is unleashing. Additional variant covers will be created by McFarlane and a group cover by artist Brett Booth – with inks by McFarlane. More covers and incentives will be announced later. However, these initial six covers will set the stage for over a dozen high profile artists to add their depiction of Spawn and other fan-favorite heroes that will set the stage for three new monthly spin-off Spawn titles: King Spawn, Gunslinger Spawn, and The Scorched, all releasing nationwide in 2021.
Contained inside Spawn’s Universe #1 will be four different stories – Spawn, She-Spawn, Medieval Spawn, and Gunslinger Spawn – highlighting different Spawn characters from the past and present. As well as the introduction of new villains. The acclaimed artists working on each of the chapters will be:
Jim Cheung – Spawn
Brett Booth – Gunslinger Spawn
Stephen Segovia – Medieval Spawnc
Marcio Takara – She-Spawn
SPAWN’S UNIVERSE #1, a 52-page, one-shot issue, will launch in June with a retail price of only $5.99.
