Todd McFarlane, one of the biggest names in comics, is launching a new series with co-writer Brian Holguin (SPAWN, Mr. Majestic) and artist Clayton Crain (X-Force). This brilliantly written and stunningly illustrated eight-issue miniseries is titled Savior and hits shelves in April, 2015. This series is sure to be a new favorite for McFarlane fans and new readers alike.

A man appears with no background, no memory, and no place to call home. But this much is clear—this individual possesses certain powers, abilities that harken from the Old Testament... Could he possibly be this corrupted world's SAVIOR in the flesh? Or will he be the world's undoing?

“It’s an idea I’ve had for a while: that if you strip away the spandex and trappings of the traditional American superheroes, what’s left is the conflict of the individual having to deal with the powers and questioning where is his place in society,” said McFarlane. “Does that make him a danger or someone others look to in order to get them through the day? It’s asking the question: ‘what would happen if any one of us got hit by a bolt of lightning and what if we were gifted with powers we didn’t know how to control? What would that mean to us?’”

Some will see him as a hero, a messiah. Others will see him as an enemy because there isn't room for a person with god-like powers to disrupt the status quo of what we already believe. Some will rally behind him. Some will denounce him. But none of us will be able to ignore him.

“Todd has become almost synonymous with Spawn over the 23 years since the launch of Image’s longest running title,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “So it’s really exciting to witness the launch of an all-new series by one of the industry’s true living legends.”

SAVIOR is coming to Image Comics in 2015.
