NYCC 2019: Todd McFarlane Awarded a Guinness World Record

With the publishing of Spawn #301, Todd McFarlane stepped into uncharted territory in the comic world! Todd McFarlane has officially earned the Guinness World Records title for the longest-running creator-owned superhero comic book series for his creation of Spawn

Fans can witness Todd McFarlane receive his official Guinness World Records certificate next week at New York Comic Con! The ceremony will be taking place on Saturday, October 5th prior to Todd McFarlane’s very own panel, The Road to Historic Spawn #300 and #301.  The panel will be taking place in Room #1A10 from 5:45- 6:45 P.M. 

Guinness World Records adjudicator, Claire Elise Stephens, will be presenting Todd McFarlane with his award.

Fans who have been following the series understand that this was no easy feat. The Spawn comic book series was first published in 1992 by Image Comic’s and sold over 1.7 million copies. Following Spawn’s initial success, the series was curated into a feature film in 1997. This means the story of Spawn has been evolving for almost three-decades in order to achieve this goal!

NYCC 2019: Todd McFarlane to Appear as a Special Guest

New York Comic Con will be the first stop for Todd McFarlane as he celebrates Spawn becoming the Longest-Running Creator-Owned Superhero Comic! The Guinness World Record holder himself will be attending as a special guest from Thursday, October 3rd through Sunday, October 6th. 

To commemorate this moment in history, the Spawn Merchandise program will be coming to New York Comic Con with all-new exclusives! The merchandise program, which was relaunched earlier this year (for the first time in over a decade) spans from pins, t-shirts, lanyards, and much more!

In addition to the Spawn merchandise, there will be New York Comic Con Exclusive art prints and comic books. Fans will be excited to hear there are three different Todd McFarlane autographed art print options! The Spawn 300 Parody, Spawn 301 Parody, and Spawn 301A art prints are based on comic book covers and are available for only $20. There are two styles of limited edition Spawn 300 comic books: 500 Gold Foil Editions (available for $50) and 1,500 Silver Editions (available for $25). With a purchase of the Gold Foil Edition of Spawn 300, buyers will receive one of the Spawn BumBumz! Come and purchase your #spawnswag at Image Comic’s Booth #1444!
