Today Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has released some much anticipated new Spawn #300 artwork online. The sneak peek offers a glimpse of longtime Batman artist Greg Capullo’s contribution to the milestone issue.
McFarlane dropped the preview on his personal Twitter account. According to his caption, Capullo provided some pencils for the issue, while McFarlane himself inked the segment.
Spawn #300 will release with 10 variant covers. McFarlane will be involved in creating five of them. Additionally, McFarlane will pencil and ink the issue, marking the first time he has done so for the series since 1995. The other artists who will be lending their talents to Spawn #300’s covers include Greg Capullo (Batman, Spawn), Jerome Opeña (Seven to Eternity, Uncanny X-Force) and Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Spawn). J. Scott Campbell’s cover for the issue was unveiled last week.
Spawn reaching 300 issues is a momentous achievement in and of itself. Additionally, when issue #301 is released, Spawn will officially become the longest-running creator-owned comic in history by surpassing Dave Sim’s Cerebus.
Spawn #300 goes on sale Aug. 28 from Image Comics.
