When Todd McFarlane’s Spawn #300 was published, in September 2019, it matched the record for the longest running independent comic series set by Dave Sim’s Cerebus (see “‘Spawn’ #300 Was Top Comic in September”). With Spawn #301, the record was broken. Now Image is going to collect the story arc in which those issues occurred, Spawn #298-301, as Spawn: The Record-Breaker. The 184-page trade paperback will be released in the direct market on April 27 and in bookstores on May 3 with an MSRP of $16.99. 

Image has several different formats for its collected editions of Spawn, including the 50-issue Spawn Compendiums. This book will follow Spawn: Vengeance, which collects issues #291-297.  Spawn: The Record-Breaker includes work by artists Greg Capullo, Jason Shawn Alexander, Clayton Crain, and Jerome Opena, as well as a story penciled by McFarlane.
