This year is a big year for Todd McFarlane's popular anti-hero, and Image is celebrating Spawn's 25th anniversary with a slew of slick new variant covers. Not wanting to hog the spotlight though, the anniversary variants will find their way to many of Image's other titles during the month of May.
Artists like Greg Hinkle, Kaare Kyle Andrews, Jim Mahfood, David Finch, Jerome Opena, Sjepan Sejic, and Chris Samnee will bring their own take on the Spawn universe to their covers, and as you can imagine it led to some fantastic results. You can view the full list of variants below, as well as when they will release. You can also view some highlights of the covers in the gallery.
