About INVINCIBLE #1 (Diamond Code SEP209165)—
Strange things begin to happen to Mark Grayson as he develops superpowers. Luckily, his dad is around to show him the ropes, at least he WOULD be if he weren’t so busy saving the world all the time. Mark is forced to go out on his own, and try and figure out how all this superheroing business works. The results are a monumental disaster. Meanwhile, there’s trouble at school when Mark is dragged into a fight of epic proportions.

This LCSD 2020 edition of the debut issue of the long running INVINCIBLE series by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker will introduce the action packed adventure to a whole new audience of readers since its original launch in 2003. Now fans can revisit the iconic superhero story of Mark Grayson in anticipation of the upcoming Amazon Prime Original TV show adaptation coming soon and featuring the voices of fan-favorite Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), Academy and Golden Globe award winning J.K. Simmons, and two time Golden Globe winning Sandra Oh of the popular TV series Killing Eve!

About MONSTRESS: TALK STORIES #1 (Diamond Code SEP209163)—
Bridging the gap between the fifth and sixth arc (which resumes in January 2021), MONSTRESS returns with TALK-STORIES, a two-part limited series that invites you to eat dumplings beside the fire and listen as Kippa recounts a defining moment from her childhood.

Spawn #308, #309, and #310 are Respawned with New Printings

Image Comics and company President Todd McFarlane will rush Spawn #308, Spawn #309, and Spawn #310 back to print in order to keep up with growing demand for the longrunning, record breaking series.

In Spawn #308, the terrible consequences of Spawn’s actions in issue #300 and #301 have a ripple effect that could lead toward annihilation. His every victory and every defeat changes his fate, and the fate of the world.

With the future in doubt and Medieval Spawn’s legacy in question, Spawn, She-Spawn, and Reaper go on the offensive in Spawn #309. But a long-time ally has shown his true colors, and Cogliostro rallies an army and a deadly new recruit…GUNSLINGER SPAWN.

And in Spawn #310 readers follow Spawn on the hunt for something insidious… 

Available at comic shops on Wednesday, November 11:

  • Spawn #308 second printing (Diamond Code SEP208131) 
  • Spawn #309 third printing (Diamond Code SEP208132) 
  • Spawn #310 second printing (Diamond Code SEP208133) 

Todd McFarlane’s Chadwick Boseman Spawn Tribute Cover Gets a Black and White Edition

Image Comics President and Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane, will pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman in the upcoming Spawn #311 with a cover in memory of the late actor who brought to life Marvel’s Black Panther character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A black and white version of this tribute cover will be available in limited quantities. Check with your local shop for more info on availability.

In the initial announcement of the Boseman tribute cover, McFarlane said:

Given the limited amount of minority characters in the comic industry today that are considered major Superheroes, I thought it appropriate for one of those well-known heroes (Spawn) to pay tribute to a man who made a lasting impact on helping shape such a strong superhero of color. Chadwick Boseman is a person who honed his skills and then made a career using them. Then he fought a fight against his own body that showed the true spirit of this man. We should all admire the traits Chadwick shared with us. And the inspiration he gave to millions of children around the globe who got to see a strong, meaningful and proud hero that looked like themselves.

Todd McFarlane’s Spawn Masterworks Launches on Kickstarter

Todd McFarlane Productions is bringing its latest Spawn toy exclusively to Kickstarter.

Spawn launched in 1992 setting records with the first action figure being released in 1995. That spawned a revolution in action figures and 25 years later, McFarlane is looking to do that again.

The Kickstarter updates the original 1995 Spawn Action Figure and Comic Release. The new Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic Remastered (2020) figure will be 7-inches tall and come with a huge folding cape and weapon. The articulation in this version will be more than double what the original action figure had, and the included comic cover will be remastered by McFarlane himself.

This newly remastered Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic (2020) version will come in a collector box with a slipcover to help preserve the condition of the figure, comic, and packaging. And speaking of the actual blister packaging, it will mimic the original design from the classic action figure of 1995, though upgrades will be all across the final product.

A new resealable shell will be used so that you may take out your Spawn Action Figure and Comic for display, but also be able to return them both into their packaging as you have never opened it in the first place!

Finally, if you choose, you can get an autograph by Todd McFarlane himself. Todd will be personally signing a nameplate that can be used for display with your Spawn Action Figure and Comic. And each autographed item will also come with a bonus weapon: A reimagining, hyper-detailed updated version of the wooden plank weapon from that original Spawn Action Figure from 1995.

To simplify this offering, there will be only four levels: A CLASSIC costume version. A MODERN costume version (with new head), an ARTIST PROOF (the ‘black & white), and lastly, the 3-PACK bundle which will include a Classic, Modern and Black & White figure. The latter two figures are getting new head sculpt! The first three levels will be offered with or without an autograph while the 3-Pack will only be offered with an autograph. And each of the single figures will have a NEW never-seen-before cover remastered by Todd McFarlane himself. The backing levels range from $40 to $160 based on the offerings.
