McFarlane Sets a Record with Spawn #301

With its 301st issue, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn becomes the longest running creator-owned comic book in the world!

Spawn launched to record sales of 1.7 million copies when its inaugural issue was released in 1992, helping to cement the early days of Image Comics as a game-changing, new era in creator-owned comic books. Now, 27-years later Spawn, and Image Comics remain hallmarks of the comic book industry.

As a testament to the longevity of Todd McFarlane’s seminal creation, and to Image Comics’ revolutionary call for creators’ rights to own and control the characters and comic books they create, Spawn’s 301st issue will be a truly historic release, as McFarlane’s award-winning, fan-favorite superhero, will become the longest running creator-owned comic book ever.

To continue the celebration that begins with the deluxe sized, 72-page issue of Spawn #300, McFarlane will return, once more, to pencil and ink interior story pages for the record-breaking Spawn #301. Showcasing his unique blend of larger-than-life action and visual world-building, McFarlane will usher in Spawn’s next creative evolution in his signature “hyper-detailed” style that has been an inspiration to artists and storytellers across all genres of entertainment media.

Joining Todd on Spawn #301’s superstar creative team will be legendary Spawn and Batman artist, Greg Capullo, critically-acclaimed illustrator, Jason Shawn Alexander, top comic artists, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opeña, and Francesco Mattina, along with more surprises, including more top-tier comic book talent.

Spawn #301, a 48-page full-color comic book will be in stores September 25, 2019. Also available will be black and white Spawn #301 “Artist Edition” variant showcasing McFarlane and Capullo’s original, inked artwork.

This record-breaking, history-making, oversized issue will retail for $4.99.
