[ENGLISH] Image tells us: 9 June 2008 (Berkeley, CA) – This October, SPAWN returns to its roots as series creator Todd McFarlane and fellow Image Founder While Portacio take the reins in issue 185. « While I’m very happy with where Spawn has gone, it’s long past time to inject some new blood into the series while also returning to its roots, » said McFarlane. « I feel what Whilce and I are doing with our co-writer, Brian Holguin, combines the old and the new in a way no one would have expected. That’s a claim which gets tossed around quite a bit in the industry, but this one really changes everything. »
Details on the new direction will roll out over the coming weeks, especially during the team’s appearance at Wizard World Chicago, June 28. The convention will feature both signings and a panel delving into the plans for what’s to come.
SPAWN 185, a 32-page comic book for $2.95, will be available in stores October 2008. Further information about the SPAWN comic, and all things McFarlane, can be found at www.spawn.com.
