Spawn creator Todd McFarlane is reuniting with artist Greg Capullo for the August 2019 release of Spawn #300. This 72-page issue will make Spawn “the longest running creator-owned comic in the world,” according to McFarlane.
Capullo drew Spawn for years, beginning with Spawn #16 and culminating his run with #100. This will be his first interior work on Spawn since issue 100, while this 300th issue will mark McFarlane’s first interior pages since 1995.
Additional artists contributing to the oversized Spawn #300 include Jason Shawn Alexander (Gotham Central), J. Scott Campbell (Danger Girl), and Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force), as well as writer Scott Snyder (Batman).
“I created Spawn back when I was a teenager hoping to someday break into the comic book industry,” said McFarlane. “Now, over 40 years later, not only was I able to have a career drawing and writing comics, but Spawn has been by my side for most of that journey. Even more exciting, Spawn is becoming the longest running creator-owned comic in the world!”
“The group of creative folks helping out on this historic Spawn 300th issue is something that I hope thrills the ‘inner 15-year-old’ in all of us,” McFarlane added. “Plus, to have Greg Capullo come back to this title after so many long years, is what has me most excited as I personally consider him to be the top talent drawing in our industry today.”
Spawn #300 is scheduled to hit shelves on August 29, retailed for $7.99. The 72-page issue will feature 12 covers.
