Friday, March 12, 2010

Todd McFarlane Productions is proud to announce the latest addition to our growing Spawn: Origins family of books -- Spawn: Origins, Book 1. This oversized, hardbound volume reprints the first 12 previously released, sold-out issues of Spawn -- each and every issue in its entirety.

That includes -- for the first time ever -- issue 10 written by Dave Sim, with a special foreword to issue 10 by Dave Sim himself. Also collected in this volume is the seldom reprinted issue 9, penned by Neil Gaiman. Other exclusive bonus content includes a black/white and color cover gallery, behind-the-scenes art including all the bonus material from the 6-issue TPB volumes and a special wraparound cover painted by master Spawn artist, Greg Capullo.

Join Spawn where it all began. Featuring the stories and artwork that laid the groundwork for the most successful independent comic book ever published, Spawn: Origins, Book 1 includes the introduction not only of Spawn, but also a number of other memorable and menacing characters that helped create the Spawn legacy.
