Todd McFarlane and Greg Capullo's covers for Spawn #301 have been revealed.
The first cover, which is from McFarlane, shows Spawn holding up a crown, with his foot on a stack of comic books. A frequent contributor to the book over the years, Capullo's cover shows the long-running character driving stakes into the hot ground.
Created in 1992 by Image Comics co-founder and President Todd McFarlane, Spawn follows former black ops assassin Al Simmons, who sold his soul to Hell when he was murdered by his old employers. Rising as the undead antihero Spawn, Simmons finds himself defending the Earth from both supernatural and technological threats. The popular character has appeared in various video games, television series and movies. With the publication of September's Spawn #301, the title will officially become the longest-running creator-owned title in mainstream North American comic books.
McFarlane is currently working on adapting Spawn into an R-rated film, which will also serve as his directorial debut. The movie does not have a release date at this time.
Spawn #300 goes on sale Sept. 4, with Spawn #301 following on Oct. 2.
