Todd McFarlane’s Spawn from Image Comics is about to hit a major milestone this August as the series reaches its 300th issue. Artist Greg Capullo is returning to the comic he first illustrated way back in issue #16. This is just part of the celebration as Spawn will become the longest running creator-owned comic book with this issue.

Spawn #300 will clock in at 72 pages with Capullo serving as the main featured interior artist. McFarlane will also be handling some interior pencils and inks for the character for the first time since 1995. Current Spawn artist Jason Shawn Alexander, J. Scott Campbell, and Jerome Opeña will also be contributing artwork and writer Scott Snyder will join in the fun too.

“I created Spawn back when I was a teenager hoping to someday break into the comic book industry,” said Todd McFarlane, Spawn creator, and President at Image Comics. “Now, over 40 years later, not only was I able to have a career drawing and writing comics, but Spawn has been by my side for most of that journey. Even more exciting, Spawn is becoming the longest running creator-owned comic in the world! 

“The group of creative folks helping out on this historic Spawn 300th issue is something that I hope thrills the ‘inner 15-year-old' in all of us. Plus, to have Greg Capullo come back to this title after so many long years, is what has me most excited as I personally consider him to be the top talent drawing in our industry today.”

“The birth of Image Comics in 1992 was an exciting time, but there are few moments I remember more vividly than getting my hands on the first issue of Spawn,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher & Chief Creative Officer at Image Comics. “Todd was already a comics superstar at that point—but Spawn vibrated with an energy all its own and I think everybody knew it was destined not only to be a hit but to stand the test of time. The fact that we’re approaching issue 300 nearly 30 years later is a testament to its impact not just on Image, but the industry as a whole. Go, Todd!”

Spawn #300 will feature 12 covers including work by McFarlane, Capullo, Campbell, Opeña, and Alexander, plus black and white Artist Editions featuring the original, inked artwork of both Capullo and McFarlane. It’s set for release on August 29th, 2019.
