‘Spawn’ #311 Chadwick Boseman Tribute Cover B+W Reveal
by Olly MacNamee
Yesterday we brought you news that Todd McFarlane is to pay tribute to the late Black Panther and 21 Bridges star, Chadwick Boseman, on a variant cover of Spawn #311. Now, we start the day bringing you news that this cover will also be available in black and white. That, and a reminder of why McFarlane felt it important to pay tribute to an actor associated with a rival company’s IP:
“Given the limited amount of minority characters in the comic industry today that are considered major Superheroes, I thought it appropriate for one of those well-known heroes (Spawn) to pay tribute to a man who made a lasting impact on helping shape such a strong superhero of color. Chadwick Boseman is a person who honed his skills and then made a career using them. Then he fought a fight against his own body that showed the true spirit of this man. We should all admire the traits Chadwick shared with us. And the inspiration he gave to millions of children around the globe who got to see a strong, meaningful and proud hero that looked like themselves.”
Spawn #311 will be out 28th October from Image Comics.
