It’s pretty huge that Spawn is reaching its #300 issue. I remember back when the first issue came out everyone thought it was going to be the next comic book investment piece that would pay for college tuition 10 times over. While that might not have happened, Todd McFarlane has kept his original Image Comics property rolling along.
Today, Image Comics revealed the McFarlane and Greg Capullo covers for Spawn #300. Capullo was a longtime artist on the book so it’s very cool to see him return for this milestone issue.
Spawn #300 arrives in comic book stores Aug. 28.
Momentum and frenzied buzz surrounding the classic antihero series continues to build leading into historic SPAWN #300 and record-breaking SPAWN #301 when SPAWN becomes the longest running creator-owned comic in the world.
The celebration of SPAWN’s 300th and 301st issues is just beginning. More art and cover reveals will be shared over the coming weeks as the road to comic book history nears its destination.

SPAWN is currently being adapted for film—a gritty, R-rated reimagining—which will mark Image President, co-founder and SPAWN creator, Todd McFarlane’s film directorial debut. McFarlane, an Emmy/Grammy-winning producer/director is also on board as screenwriter and producer.
