Earlier this month, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn made history by becoming the Guinness World Record holder for the “Longest-Running Creator-Owned Superhero Comic Book Series”. To celebrate this record breaking achievement, McFarlane and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Chandler, AZ are throwing a colossal Spawn Party. The Alamo Drafthouse will show the original 1997 Spawn movie showing at 5:30PM (limited seats available), and a commemorative Spawn Comic poster will be handed out with each movie ticket purchased.
But you don’t need a ticket to attend the celebration going on from 12 PM to 5 PM that day. ALL FANS are invited to join in on the celebration with the creator of Spawn himself. The Spawn Historic 301 event is open to the public and admission is FREE! The event will feature a FREE in-person autograph session with Todd McFarlane and the opportunity to take a picture with him (signature limited to one item per person). Attendees will receive an event-exclusive Spawn comic. Those obtaining a signature from McFarlane that day will receive a special certificate of authenticity unique to the event.
If you dress like Spawn at the Alamo Drafthouse that day, you might walk away with a McFarlane original hand-drawn sketch. A Spawn costume contest, judged by McFarlane, will decide the winner. Time to break out your best Cy-Gor or She-Spawn or Medieval Spawn costume!
Like with many of its theme nights and special releases, Alamo Drafthouse will have Spawn themed food and drink specials available to purchase. Also available to purchase are a limited edition Spawn 300 variant, the Spawn BumBumz vinyl figures, Spawn pins, t-shirts and lanyards. Local comic shops will also be selling other Spawn books and merchandise on site.
Fans will get a rare viewing of historic comic pages from Todd McFarlane’s personal collection of original Spawn artwork spanning over the past three decades.
No need to drive to the Spawn event. Alamo Drafthouse and Spawn have teamed up to provide a Lyft discount to encourage savings on travels to and from the event. Use code GWR301 to receive your discount of 10 percent off of two rides to and from the event.
