See the coming Image Comics special Spawn cover variants…

This May will celebrate the legacy of Spawn for Image Comics, during its 25th Anniversary; with a variety of special variant covers.

25 years ago in the next month of May, Todd McFarlane released Spawn, a long-running series starring a superhero/anti-hero with supernatural powers. The artwork and world-building felt special and new to fans of the ex-Spider-Man comics artist, but also special is the significance as a première title for Image Comics. The new publisher became known for its creator driven (and owned) works, prompting a rise in independent titles as a collective powerhouse along the DC/Marvel licensed properties. Many popular Image Comics titles followed since, including more notably Walking Dead, Saga, Maxx, Witchblade.

Now, shall come the variant covers celebrating the Image Comics première icon upon many current Image Comics titles. Each will be available to comic book retailers throughout the month. Black and white versions of a selection of the covers will also be available. Consult your favorite comic book dealer for more info. The schedule for each issue follows:
