In Unprecedented Move, Spawn’s Todd McFarlane To Draw Issue Of Series He Created

September will see the release of Spawn #301, which if we’re to believe the cover text, history will be made. The issue will see the return of creator Todd McFarlane to interior art.

I could think of no better reason to return to the drawing board than to celebrate the record-breaking 301st issue of the SPAWN comic. Twenty-seven years ago, I began this journey on the SPAWN title. That start, along with helping to co-found Image Comics, (today the third largest comic publisher in the nation) was with the goal of allowing creative people to own and control their ideas. It is with great pride that I can say that after nearly three decades of producing the SPAWN title, that I am still 100% in the creative driver’s seat of the character I brought to life back in 1992. I wrote and drew that first issue and will do the same for this historic issue as well.

Just as he did with Spawn #300, McFarlane will only draw part of the interior art. He will be joined by artists Greg Capullo, Jason Shawn Alexander, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opeña, and Francesco Mattina.

Spawn #301 is set to release September 25, 2019. The issue will be 48 pages for $4.99.
