These covers are in addition to the upcoming DC variants that will celebrate the launch of the Batman/Spawn crossover comic. Image Comics was launched in 1992, featuring McFarlane’s debut issues spawn among the very first releases. According to picture, spawn #1 remains the best-selling issue of a creator-owned comic book ever selling 1.7 million copies. spawn has since been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest-running creator-owned comic book of all time. Spawn also became an Emmy Award-winning HBO animated series and a live-action movie grossing over $100 million at the box office.
