The comic book event of the season started off with a bang as SPAWN’s new direction, courtesy of Image Founders Todd McFarlane & Whilce Portacio, resulted in an immediate distribution-level sell-out!
“Obviously it’s good news to have the initial issue sell out so quickly, but now the bigger task is to continue that momentum in the issues going forward,” Spawn creator Todd McFarlane said. “As a reminder, the first few issues will be a lot of setup before we kick this into high gear. Each issue isn’t meant to be its own stand-alone book.”
As if SPAWN #185’s cataclysmic and unforgettable opening wasn’t enough, readers were also introduced to the awakening of the mysterious and comatose Patient 47. In the pages that followed, secrets boiled to the surface and lives were lost, creating one of the greatest mysteries to hit the SPAWN mythos. While limited amounts of the first printing may still be available at your local comic book store, a second printing will hit stands soon to meet the additional demand.
SPAWN #185 2nd ptg., a 32-page full color comic book for $2.95, will be available in stores soon.
