Four Titles Launching in 2021

The four new comic series launching this year, which McFarlane dubbed “The Year of Spawn,” are:
Spawn’s Universe. Launching in June, this first title in the new universe will set the stage for other new monthly titles.
King Spawn #1 will launch in August.
Gunslinger Spawn, launching in October, stars the character that’s been a big hit among the fanbase over the past year.
The Scorched will be a team book banding together Spawn, Redeemer, Gunslinger, Medieval Spawn, and She-Spawn, a team that will shift in future months. New villains will also be introduced. No launch month was announced for this title.
“This is a long-intended plan that will need the help of dozens and dozens of creators to help create hundreds and hundreds of characters,” McFarlane said of the new initiative. “And then to reward those creators if any of their ideas pay off in a big way outside of the comic industry. The quest isn't to have our ideas exclusively live in the comic book industry but to have merit and value outside of that industry as well.”
McFarlane has been on a role with Spawn over the couple of years, beginning with the run-up to Spawn #301, which made the title the longest-running independent comic series, and continuing in the Covid era (see “Image Hits Six Figure Print Runs on Two Current Comics”).
Two pieces of art were released. A cover for Spawn’s Universe #1 by J. Scott Campbell, and an interior spread from the title by Jim Cheung with colors by FCO Plascencia.
