Beginning in June, Todd McFarlane officially releases the beginning of his new “world-building” universe. Nearly 30 years in the making, the highly anticipated SPAWN’S UNIVERSE #1 is set to visually expand. It will reveal of some of the stunning artwork by superstar artists Brett Booth, Jim Cheung, McFarlane, and colorist FCO. McFarlane takes on the writing duties for this inaugural book. This launchpad will build a bigger multi-character, interconnected comic book universe based around his top-selling monthly SPAWN comic.

SPAWN’S UNIVERSE #1 will be available with several variant covers. It will feature the artwork of J. Scott Campbell, who will be doing a set of four covers. Additional variant covers will be created by McFarlane and a group cover by artist Brett Booth – with inks by McFarlane. More covers and incentives will be announced later. However, these initial six covers will set the stage for over a dozen high profile artists to add their depiction of SPAWN and other fan-favorite heroes that will set the stage for three new monthly spin-off SPAWN titles: KING SPAWN, GUNSLINGER SPAWN, and THE SCORCHED, all releasing nationwide in 2021.

McFarlane’s vision is to create new exciting superheroes and new major villains over the next year and beyond. 

I’ve waited almost 30 years to be able to get to this moment. To deliver on ideas, I hope they will grow from this initial seed called SPAWN’S UNIVERSE #1 into a fully formed world populated with hundreds and hundreds of characters in the near future. The stage will be set with this book, and soon I’ll be launching into new monthly titles for the first time since 1992. I can’t wait to show comic readers all the crazy ideas in my head as well as opening up the floodgate to so many talented creators that have said they’d like to join me on this journey.

It has been more than 28 years for collectors and fans since a SPAWN #1 title has released. In 2021 there will be four new Spawn-related #1 titles to comic retailers nationwide. In 1992, the SPAWN comic’s first issue was released. It sold an unprecedented 1.7 million copies, a record still unsurpassed for a creator-owned comic book. The original SPAWN book is one of the world’s bestselling and longest-running comics. Over 100 million copies have been sold in more than 120 countries.
