We're officially a month away from the debut of Spawn's Universe #1, a new relaunch of the solo series for the popular Image Comics antihero. The release will feature an all-star roster of creatives telling stories in the world of Spawn — and it looks like it will include some pretty epic variant covers as well. On Sunday, Image released the first look at a trio of variants for Spawn's Universe #1, one by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and two by J. Scott Campbell. You can check out the covers — which include a sketch variant from Campbell — below.

"I'm going to appeal to a wider, arguably newer, audience -- because again, some of this [story] is going all the way back to the release of Spawn #1," McFarlane recently explained to "You can be 30 years old now and say, 'That happened when I was a kid. I have no recollection of it' -- so, Spawn may not be that meaningful to you if you're a younger person. So what is meaningful to you? Well, the Marvel movies, and some of the DC stuff and whatever that you're watching on TV."

"I have to acknowledge that...besides retaining those that have been in-the-know about what Spawn is or something like that, that I also have to say out loud that there will be a big portion of people that I'm hoping, fingers crossed, will be coming and sampling Spawn for the first time," McFarlane continued. "If that's true, I then must present it in a package that makes sense to them."
