Philip Tan Creates New Character For Spawn

In the back of today's Spawn #305 – which sees Todd McFarlane and Jason Shawn Alexander working on the same Spawn pages in some places – Todd says goodbye to Jason, as he is off to pastures Killadelphia. And welcoming Philip Tan to the series, with some preview pencil cover art by Tan. Which I have chosen to overexpose so you can get a better look at whoever this new character is. Here's the images, alongside the solicits for each issue.

Yeah, that's not exactly what happened in Spawn #305, out today from Image Comics… I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store. If you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
