Multiple Spawn Team-Up Variants Sell Out and Head Back to Print

This month’s Spawn team-up variants campaign struck the industry with a bolt of energy and Image will be rushing twelve of the covers back to print this week—with a slight color variation for added collectability—in order to keep up with customer demand. 

Fifty of Image’s most popular books, in addition to many of DC’s as part of the Batman/Spawn crossover, saw an appearance of Spawn on covers this month.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Image Comics—and of Todd McFarlane’s iconic, history-making, record-breaking Spawn—and December’s Spawn team-up covers give fans the perfect way to celebrate the beloved character’s lasting impact and influence on the medium.

Spawn team-up variants to boast a second printing will be:

All Against All #1 (of 5)

(W) Alex Paknadel (A/CA) Caspar Wijngaard
In Shops: Dec 07, 2022
SRP: $3.99

Writer ALEX PAKNADEL (DC vs. Vampires: All Out War, Giga), artist CASPAR WIJNGAARD (HOME SICK PILOTS), and letterer HASSAN OTSMANE-ELHAOU present a primal vision of humanity gone terribly wrong.

In All Against All, it is the distant future. Earth is long gone, but a race of alien conquerors knows as “the Operators” have preserved its most savage animals in an artificial jungle environment they barely understand.

With no bodies of their own, the Operators move from world to world, harvesting bodies for the organic exosuits they use to wage their endless wars. Ignored and underestimated by his captors is the habitat’s sole human specimen, Helpless.

However, when their efforts to find and harvest an apex predator intensify, he gives them far more than they bargained for.

Featuring variant covers by artistic powerhouses as SEAN PHILLIPS (RECKLESS), MARTIN SIMMONDS (THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH), and CHRISTIAN WARD (BLOOD STAINED TEETH)!
