Published by Image Comics, the Spawn character also set a record as the longest running, creator-owned comic on the planet when issue #301 was published in 2019.

McFarlane has announced his plans to once again expand the Spawn range in a new “shared universe”. The initial step in that plan was Spawn’s Universe #1 which was released in June to the largest sales from Image since 1998. The first issue of King Spawn beat that number by two and a half times.
