Todd McFarlane’s first-ever superhero team is about to see the light of day, and Image Comics is preparing a “scorched earth” marketing campaign to usher in their debut. Featuring new and original characters from the Spawn universe, The Scorched will tell the story of a superhero team containing the likes of Reaper, Spawn, Redeemer, Gunslinger, Medieval Spawn, She-Spawn, and more.
The Scorched is written by Sean Lewis and features art by Stephen Segovia and Paulo Sequeria. Frank Quitely provides the cover art for Issue 1, and there will be variant covers by Greg Capullo, Don Aguillo, Mark Silvestri, Brett Booth, and Todd McFarlane himself. In a press release, McFarlane had the following to say about this project:
“The Scorched will allow myself and the creative team to bring in a rotating cast of heroes and villains and to have fun creating new characters and storylines.”
The Scorched #1 will be released in comic book shops and available on digital platforms on December 1st, 2021. Stay tuned to Conskipper for complete coverage of all things Spawn as soon as it breaks!
