Image Comics has unveiled Spawn #300 covers by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane and long-time series artist Greg Capullo.
Image notes are many more cover reveals are to come, but given the prominence of McFarlane’s and Capullo’s roles with the character over the years, these are two of the most significant. This is a significant milestone for the character, which is probably at this point the most recognizable superhero in the world that’s not owned by either DC or Marvel.
Also, on a personal note, while writing up this news note I remember that I have Spawn #100 in a box somewhere back in my mom’s house, having bought that comic from the local comic shop in the town where I grew up. Remembering this made me contemplate my own mortality in a way that I was entirely unprepared for, which isn’t that fitting for Spawn?
Here are the covers. The first two are by McFarlane and Capullo, while the second two are a Capullo solo effort, with colors by FCO Plascencia.
Also, the full press release from Image can be found below:

These covers are just four of many exciting cover reveals to come on the #Roadto300!
The record-setting Comic hits stores on Wednesday, August 28. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, August 5.

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.
SPAWN sold an unprecedented 1.7 million copies at the time it was released and is one of the world’s best-selling and longest-running monthly comic books, with hundreds of millions sold worldwide in more than 120 countries, and 15 different languages.
The comic became an Emmy Award-winning animated series on HBO and a New Line Cinema feature film that grossed more than $100 million. McFarlane went on to direct and produce award-winning and critically acclaimed projects for top movie studios and record labels.
