Some comic book publishers issue new variant cover, timed to be released for Final Order Cut-Off date to help persuade comic book retailers to bump their numbers a little. Todd McFarlane has, it seems, run out of time for the cover to Spawn: Scorched #3, up for FOC from Image Comics today. Which is why he is releasing a work in progress, a homage of the Jim Lee and Scott Williams cover to X-Men #1 from over thirty years ago. Though just posting in on Instagram, leaving many retailers none the wiser. Let's see if we can fill that gap!
And this is the cover it is playing off.
Also from around that time. Todd McFarlane is homaging his own cover to Spider-Man #1 for Spawn #327, featuring Haunt, getting an extended FOC today giving Todd a chance to show it off.
And Todd McFarlane breaking down how it came about, saying "Verified
*SPAWN #327 Order Deadline EXTENDED! Reserve YOUR copy at YOUR local comic shop! Watch the video for how MY cover came together! TODD" And here's where it originally came from…
Will these covers help FOC numbers? it is already looking good for them all.
