Todd McFarlane Reveals Details on Spawn's First-Ever Team Series

For the first time ever, Spawn is getting a brand new team-up title, The Scorched, with new details about the book and its art releasing this week.

This has been the "Year of Spawn," which launched when the one-shot issue Spawn's Universe #1 made its way onto shelves and digital platforms back on June 23. The double-sized book paved the way for multiple Spawn titles to debut, including Gunslinger Spawn, King Spawn and now The Scorched, which will serve as the culmination of this year's stories and characters. Thirty years in the making, The Scorched #1 is set to feature characters like Reaper, Spawn, Redeemer, Gunslinger, Medieval Spawn, She-Spawn and more.

While the series will be written by Sean Lewis (King Spawn, Saints) with art by Stephen Segovia (King Spawn, Vengeance of Vampirella), the series will feature the creative talents of numerous artists, including Spawn creator and Image Comics President Todd McFarlane, for many accompanying variant covers for each issue. McFarlane will be responsible for a 1:250 copy incentive cover that he will hand-sign, with retailers having the opportunity to send them in to the Certified Grading Company (CGC) with a Certificate of Authenticity to have these books graded. A press release states that this will be the only time McFarlane will sign these cover copies.

In the same press release, McFarlane spilled the details on what readers, collectors and retailers can expect, and thanked them for supporting Spawn.

"We are doing a free upgrade on The Scorched #1 cover stock to be closer to the quality of the Spawn monthly comics, after hearing from some retailers and fans. We are listening to you!" said McFarlane. "The Scorched #1 is on track to become another record-setting new title, and I want to thank all the comic retailers and fans for their support. We are having a blast creating an all-new team book with new storylines, old and new superhero characters."

Other covers for The Scorched #1 were created by artists like Ryan Stegman, Puppeteer Lee, Brett Booth (who created a connecting cover with King Spawn #1 and Gunslinger Spawn #1), Greg Capullo, Don Aguillo, and Image Comics founder Mark Silvestri. Capullo, the artist behind hit DC titles like Batman and Dark Nights: Death Metal, will be responsible for a 1:50 incentive variant in addition to another variant cover he created for the book. If retailers want to be eligible for five of the Capullo variants and one McFarlane variant, they will need to order at least 250 copies of The Scorched #1.

Featuring 48 color pages and rated Teen+, The Scorched #1 goes on sale Jan 12, 2022 from Image Comics. The series will be available in comic stores and on digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books and Google Play.
