THE "GOLDEN" ERA BEGINS HERE

December 31, 1969

New Spawn Covers From Legendary Artist Michael Golden


Berkeley,
CA – 10 August, 2011 – Beginning this October, Todd McFarlane’s
long-running creator-owned series SPAWN will welcome comics legend
Michael Golden to the team as he signs on as the series’ regular cover
artist.

Revered amongst comic book pros and fans alike since
bursting onto the scene in the mid-‘70s, Golden is perhaps best known
for his work on Micronauts and The ‘Nam. He has worked on virtually
every major character in comics from Superman to Spider-Man, from the
X-Men to the Avengers – and well beyond when you add his amazing cover
work to the tally.

“I’ve
been a fan of Michael Golden’s almost as long as I’ve been a fan of
comic books. He’s been a huge influence on my artwork over the years ,”
said McFarlane. “After having the pleasure of inking him on the 200th
Anniversary issue of SPAWN, I knew I wanted us to work together again in
the near future. When the opportunity presented itself soon after, I
knew he was the perfect choice for cover artist. Don’t miss his debut in
this month’s issue of SPAWN!”

Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson added, “Between getting back on
schedule and a fresh creative team that’s pushing the story into new and
exciting places, SPAWN has been at the absolute top of its game this
year. Adding a powerhouse like Michael Golden to the mix is only going
to strengthen an already top-notch series.”

Since his new life as
the Hellspawn began, Jim Downing has been at odds with his new life.
Now, following his confrontation with Clown, Jim is ready to step from
the shadows and claim his place as a new messiah for the Digital Age.

SPAWN
#213, a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores
November 2 and will be available to order in the September issue of
Previews. SPAWN #210 is on sale now.
