Spawn #166 Sells Out, TMP Goes Back to Press to Meet Demand

SPAWN #166 - featuring Spawn's rise from the ashes of Armageddon - has sold out at Diamond. That's right: after 15 years of continuous publication, Todd McFarlane's signature creation can still spawn sell-out sales. This time, it's thanks to new artist Brian Haberlin, who joins writer David Hine to steer Image's flagship title in an all-new direction. Hine and Haberlin's new take on SPAWN has struck such a chord with fans, Image is immediately going back to press to meet demand.

"Todd wanted us to grab people by the lapels and tell 'em that SPAWN is back!" says writer David Hine. "The whole creative team felt supercharged, and it shows in the book. Once I saw Haberlin's art - particularly that soul-chilling last page - I knew we had a hit on our hands."

SPAWN #166 chronicles Spawn's life after the epic conclusion to the "Armageddon" storyline. Spawn has returned to the alleyways of New York and found that not everything is right in the world. Part gritty crime story and part cutting-edge horror, the opening salvo of Hine and Haberlin's new direction is easily the most talked about issue since the series' debut.

"Hine and Haberlin are leading SPAWN in a very new, very dark direction," says retailer Mike Malve of Atomic Comics in Phoenix. "If you haven't read SPAWN before, now is a good time to give it a try. Haberlin's art is as different from previous incarnations of Spawn as McFarlane's original run was different from his work on Spider-man. Very dark, very disturbing ... very good."
