Todd McFarlane Creates First Time Ever Spawn, Spider-Man Cover for Overstreet Price Guide

When it comes to comic book artwork, Todd McFarlane’s work on Spider-Man and Spawn titles belong in an elite category with few peers. The artist broke barriers with his updated look on Spidey, and he continues to cross milestones with Issue #301 of Spawn and beyond as the longest running creator-owned comic of all time. However, McFarlane has never drawn these two most beloved characters together on the same page and he rarely ever draws Spider-Man (save for a few in-person sketches here and there) in the 27 years since leaving Marvel Comics. That all changes with new cover art McFarlane created for the 50th anniversary edition of Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide! read more read more
