Todd McFarlane Swipes Ultimate Spider-Man #1 For Spawn #1 Directors Cut, Out Next Wednesday

Posted by May 11, 2017 6 Comments


In 1992, Spawn #1 by Todd McFarlane debuted to 1.7 million copies sold. In 2017 it sells… not quite that many. But it’s still going. And on Wednesday they are publishing the first issue one more time in a special director’s cut.


With covers by Ashley Wood, Clayton Crain (copying Todd McFarlane from Spawn #1) and Todd McFarlane (copying Mark Bagley Joe Quesada from Ultimate Spider-Man #1)…


The Director’s Cut includes the original artboards of Spawn #1…


…as well as commentary from Todd himself on each page. Plus extra pin-ups and never before seen art.


Out on Wednesday. I wonder if it will still have a “thanks” to Lance Gueck inside?
