Earlier today, Bleeding Cool reported that Image Comics had extended the final order cutoff date for Spawn #301, the record-breaking issue which will make Spawn the longest-running creator-owned comic in the world. The reason? Well, despite offering seventeen covers for the issue, Image hadn't yet revealed them all, so in an attempt to give retailers more changes to up those order numbers, they pushed the date back to next Monday and revealed some more of them.
And now, another, the variant by Clayton Crain, featuring Spawn with his foot stuck in a spikey red pipe. Oh, that's his shoe? Blame it on poor logo placement.
Get your orders in by Monday!

Momentum and frenzied buzz surrounding the classic antihero series continues to build leading into the record-breaking SPAWN #301 when SPAWN becomes the longest running creator-owned comic in the world.
SPAWN is currently being adapted for film—a gritty, R-rated reimagining—which will mark Image President, co-founder and SPAWN creator, Todd McFarlane's film directorial debut. McFarlane, an Emmy/Grammy-winning producer/director is also on board as screenwriter and producer.
SPAWN sold an unprecedented 1.7 million copies at the time it was released and is one of the world's best-selling and longest-running monthly comic books, with hundreds of millions sold worldwide in more than 120 countries, and 15 different languages.
The comic became an Emmy Award-winning animated series on HBO and a New Line Cinema feature film that grossed more than $100 million. McFarlane went on to direct and produce award-winning and critically acclaimed projects for top movie studios and record labels.
