HELLO BEAUTIFUL! Check out this variant Todd McFarlane did of Erik’s Savage Dragon wearing the hell spawn! So cool! Well it’s one of (4?) variants coming for Spawn 266 it seems! I’m not one for variants NORMALLY… but.. I feel myself caving… How about you? Going for them all?
Oh how the days are dwindling on these sweet Spawn work in progress shots. I’ve been enjoying them. Maybe we’ll get the same thing with Ant when it launches? Speaking of the Red one herself, she’s front and center in this WIP shot. Erik says he’s shooting for a silver surfer type metallic finish rather than a liquid type look.. but I guess it could still change up last sec. Anyway–Enjoy this shot and just pretend you can smell the action! Or don’t….. sewer an’ all..
Because here’s an Angel! Well it’s Angel Dragon kicking wholesale ass as usual. AND ISN’T that classic logo so snazzy back there? Considering what a fantastic display she put on this last issue I would have no complaints if we got a whole issue dedicated to the finless Dragon!
WELL… I’m a bit saddened, but actually it’s also kinda to be expected. Much as Supreme was merely Erik’s intent to introduce a new direction and see who does what with it (though with Supreme—Uh.. not much was done with it), It seems Erik’s Spawn run was only ever really going to just kick things off in a new direction. Which.. I super dug the Satan Saga Wars and judging from the ‘human’ Spawn angle, I think it was a good new direction to push in.
To be clear–We’re STILL getting a few more issues of Spawn with Erik including his crossover with Malcom, ANT, AND SPAWN!!! So I’m thinking this run will go down as rock solid from start to finish.
Anyway from what the tale the solicitations are telling it seems like Todd is going solo like Han for 267! So we’ll see!
Well here’s a twist! After a daring new look to signify the hand off of the book from Dragon to his son Malcom–THE OLD LOGO IS COMING BACK!! I gotta say.. I did like the new logo, but the old one has earned that ‘classic feel’ after all those years of mileage. Is there some hidden narrative behind it or simply a fleeting flight of artistic whimsy!!! YOU SHALL SOON SEE! Uh.. I’m pretty sure Erik just said he just decided he liked the old one better.. but ya know.. I gotta have something to type here..
Anyway enjoy these covers 218 and 219 I haven’t seen yet! OH NO MAXINE PLEASE GOD NO!!! … and also THE TRIAL OF MR. GLUM!! 😀 😀 😀 EXCITING STUFF!!
Well the time is drawing near for these Spawn WIPs to dry up. So I’m enjoying them while they last. It’s been fun seeing the mutation from Erik’s work to the Erik/Todd love child that hits the printed page. That ninja looking Spawn is ESPECIALLY bad ass! Enjoy! (Click images for full size)
OH HEY! This is happening real soon! You on the east coast? Near Bean Town? Ya gotta get down to see Erik! The man can draw his ass off. It’s a sight to see. Let’s get the official copy shall we?

AW YEEEEAH!!! Look what we got here! It’s the latest sneak peeks into the future of Spawn and Savage Dragon. We had seen the line work for the Spawn cover previously. Ant’s looking to make the scene in a big way with a cross over in both Spawn AND Savage Dragon! Here’s THAT COVER:
MEANWHILE: This mysterious figure making mince meat of the treacherous trio has been CONFIRMED to be none other than the MIGHTY ONE!!! HE SHALL BE NAMED! Shall Brenda Funk appear!? OH SO MUCH TO GET STOKED FOR!!
Savage Finisodes! You know the small fincasts we wanted to do more of? Well I finally got around to knocking 2 quick ones out. Just my fast impressions of Spawn#261 and Savage Dragon #212 respectively. Hopefully this will tide you over a bit between fincasts (we’re recording the newest one Tomorrow!). And they won’t all be reviews. We’ll be doing little interviews. Opinion stuff. Just fun things. Enjoy and spread the #finthusiasm!
