Spawn #301 - Complete Cover Checklist

Alone at the top…


After the release of record-breaking Spawn #301, Todd McFarlane’s most famous creation stands alone as the longest-running creator owned comic in comic book history. If you’ve been on this journey following the exploits of Mr. Al Simmons since 1992, or jumped onto the hell-wagon later on, you’ll be bursting at the seams to get your hands on this instant classic. I never thought that I’d still be reading this title 27 years after picking up the iconic first issue. Spawn #301 is a testament to the talents and contributions of everyone involved in bringing us this beloved hero. First as the cornerstone of the creator-founded Image Comics, and now as their most veteran torch bearer, Spawn is as exciting as ever.


This 48-page ‘Giant’ features McFarlane returning to pencil and ink the interior pages. I can’t tell you how exciting it is to see the original master at the helm of his creation. Greg Capullo, Jason Shawn Alexander, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opeña, & Francesco Mattina join in to celebrate this ground-breaking achievement. As with Issue #300, there will be at least 18 retailer variants to collect and choose from.
