Image Comics is pleased to unveil threeÂ stunningÂ Spawn #314Â coversÂ drawn by Greg Capullo and inkedÂ by Image Comics Co-FounderÂ Todd McFarlane, which will showcase the creative processÂ from theÂ raw pencils, to theÂ inks, and finally the colored version. All three of these collectible coversÂ willÂ showcase the three steps in making a comic book cover and each willÂ be available at comic shops in January.
In Spawn #314, fans will see the return of Omega Spawn…! This towering super-villain becomes the driving force towards Spawn assembling his new Super-Team. Medeival Spawn joins the action this issue!
“I think it will be interesting and educational for readers to be able to see all three of the big creative steps that goes into making any cover. In this particular case they’ll be treated to the astonishing penciled artwork by iconic artist Greg Capullo (Batman, Spawn, DC Metals). This is the ‘raw’ cover,” said McFarlane. “Then there will be a black & white, inked version in which I get to ink over Greg’s wonderful work. Then lastly, there will be the usual full colored version of this piece displaying the skillful hand of FCO (famed colorist of many of Capullo’s past projects [Batman, Haunt, DC Metals].)
“If you’re lucky enough to find all three and can put them on your wall it will be a spectacular looking tribute to an important part of making any comic.”
The “raw” pencil cover highlighting Capullo’s art will be a 1:50 incentive cover for retailers.
Spawn #314 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, January 27.
