Today during the “Image Comics & SPAWN’S 30th Anniversary! Spotlight on Todd McFarlane!” panel at New York Comic Con, writer and artist Todd McFarlane unveiled a number of new variant covers for the upcoming Batman/Spawn crossover from DC Comics. The one-shot is written by McFarlane and illustrated by his former Spawn collaborator and former Batman artist Greg Capullo. McFarlane also announced that the December-shipping one-shot will be carried at Barnes & Noble with an exclusive variant cover.
Here’s how DC describes Batman/Spawn:
Two dark heroes, cursed by tragedy, find their paths again crossing…but not by choice! What sinister foe is at work, pitting the Dark Knight against the Hellspawn? From the shadows of Gotham City to New York City, this epic event is the blockbuster you’ve been waiting almost two decades for!
Previously shown variant covers featured artwork by Brett Booth, Jason Fabok, and Francesco Mattina. During the panel today McFarlane showed off cover artwork by the other announced cover artists, including Jorge Jimenez, J. Scott Campbell, Sean Murphy, and more covers by Capullo & McFarlane.
The Barnes & Noble-exclusive variant will also be illustrated by Capullo & McFarlane. The exclusive edition marks the first time a DC Comics single-issue release will be sold in the bookstore chain since 2019’s Detective Comics #1000.
Check out all of the newly-revealed variant covers below. Batman/Spawn #1 is set for release in stores and digitally on Tuesday, December 13th.
