Today sees the publication of King Spawn #1 by Sean Lewis, Todd McFarlane, Javier Fernandez, Stephen Segovia, Marcio Takara, Philip Tan, and Brett Booth, with a variant cover by Donny Cates and Todd McFarlane as well. And King Spawn #1 has a lot of Spawn-like creatures in it.
Spawn Classic of course, even standing in a graveyard.
Anti-Spawn and the return of Haunt, the character Todd created with Robert Kirkman.
The Nightmare Spawn.
A very dark version of Captain Marvel – or maybe even Marvelman/Miracleman, called Komox – or The Hero. Todd of course has had Miracleman history…
And the Gunslinger Spawn as well. That's a lot of Spawn-related characters, a number of whom will end up in The Scorched out in December.
And even that cover by Donny Cates. Now Donny Cates also has a Marvel comic book out today, Thor #16 with Michele Bandini and, spoilers on, obviously he can't put the character in that. His Crossover powers do not extend that far.
But he does get to reintroduce someone to the Marvel Universe after some time apart…
Angela, as created by Todd McFarlane and Neil Gaiman for Spawn, and transferred across to Marvel ownership after a variety of legal battles concerning Miracleman. And reintroduced by Donny Cates on the very same day that Todd McFarlane launches King Spawn #1 with a cover from Donny. Coincidence? And does he have to turn every comic book into a Todd McFarlane Tribute Act?
