King Spawn #1 Gets a Todd McFarlane 1:250 Cover

The highly anticipated August launch of King Spawn #1 will have two exciting retailer incentive covers. There will be a Todd McFarlane’s King Spawn #1 1:250 retailer incentive that will be the lowest print run ever released by Todd McFarlane Productions. Additionally, each book will be hand-signed by legendary Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and each book will have its own unique number on it. This is the only time McFarlane will sign the King Spawn #1 McFarlane retailer incentive issue.  This incentive cover is exclusively offered to retailers that order 250 copies of King Spawn #1.

Additionally, a Greg Capullo, black and white, King Spawn #1 retailer incentive cover will be offered to retailers that order 50 copies of King Spawn #1; they will receive the Capullo retailer incentive cover. For every 250 King Spawn #1 issues ordered, retailers will receive five King Spawn #1 Capullo retailer incentive covers and one King Spawn #1 McFarlane retailer incentive cover. Both King Spawn #1 retailer incentive covers are available only to comic book shops who order enough King Spawn #1 copies to receive them by the Final Order Cutoff date, Monday, August 2.

McFarlane also has revealed an art collaboration with Eisner Award-nominated writer Donny Cates. Cates is a featured cover artist on King Spawn #1.

The superstar creative team for this title includes writers Sean Lewis and McFarlane, and artists Javier Fernandez, Brett Booth, Philip Tan, Stephen SegoviaMarcio Takara, and McFarlane. Along with cover artists Greg Capullo, Sean Gordon Murphy, Puppeteer Lee, David Finch, Donny Cates, Booth, and McFarlane.

The release of King Spawn #1 is nearly three decades in the making and marks the first time a #1 Spawn issue has been available, in monthly form, in over 28 years. Issue #1 is a massive 56 pages thick with stunning art and action-packed storytelling.  

The King Spawn #1 continues the dramatic events from the recent blockbuster Spawn’s Universe #1 comic book. King Spawn is expected to have even bigger sales than the record-setting Spawn’s Universe #1

King Spawn #1 McFarlane signature and unique numbering will vary in placement on the actual books from the example revealed. The exact print run number will be available after FOC on Monday, August 2.

King Spawn #1 will be available at  comic book shops  and digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, August 25.  SRP $5.99.
