Todd McFarlane’s ‘Gunslinger Spawn’ #1 Reveals Its Various Covers
by Olly MacNamee
Todd McFarlane’s Gunslinger Spawn debuts this October as part of Todd McFarlane’s ongoing expansion of the Spawn Universe. And now we get a look at the various covers to accompany the first issue.
Illustrated by Brett Booth with additional art by Philip Tan, Kevin Keane, and Thomas Nachlik, and written by McFarlane with Aleš Kot, Gunslinger Spawn #1 will feature covers by Greg Capullo, John Romita Jr., TonTon Revolver, Booth, McFarlane, andThe Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman!
“The new comic title features Gunslinger Spawn, a man out of time who is unwillingly thrust 200 years in the future to the 21st century. Not only does he have to navigate a new world, but he’ll have to deal with the demons of his past. No one is safe from his vengeance as he heads into battle with guns blazing as he tries to find his way back home.”
“Gunslinger Spawn #1 cover G adds another level of excitement to this new ongoing series. With pencils by Booth and inks by McFarlane, this cover along with both the King Spawn #1 and The Scorched #1 (releasing in December 2021), interconnect to form one epic work of art.
Gunslinger Spawn #1 includes a 1:250 copy incentive cover. McFarlane will hand-sign and create a unique sequential number for each issue just like he did for the record-breaking King Spawn #1 (based on the Final Order Cutoff total). Each signed Gunslinger Spawn #1 1:250 includes a CGC Certificate of Authenticity that retailers can send in and redeem though CGC to have their books graded. This is the only time McFarlane will sign the Gunslinger Spawn #1 1:250 incentive copy issue.
Additionally, there will be a Gunslinger Spawn #1 1:50 copy incentive cover by Capullo.”
Gunslinger Spawn #1 will be out on Wednesday October 20th from Image Comics.
