With a new Francesco Mattina cover, Image Comics is reprinting Todd McFarlane‘s Spawn #1 from 1992 for Free Comic Book Day this year.
And the big question… will Lance Gueck get his original ‘thanks’ credit back? He co-scripted that initial first issue, named Sam and Twitch and edited the drawn pages into some kind of story… and never got his promised Sam & Twitch spinoff series. I always like to try and keep his flame alive.,.
