Todd McFarlane surprised everyone in the hobby this week when he announced that October issue of Spawn, #311, would have a special Tribute Variant to Chadwick Boseman.
According to Todd McFarlane:
Given the limited amount of minority characters in the comic industry today that are considered major Superheroes, I thought it appropriate for one of those well-known heroes (Spawn) to pay tribute to a man who made a lasting impact on helping shape such a strong superhero of color. Chadwick Boseman is a person who honed his skills and then made a career using them. Then he fought a fight against his own body that showed the true spirit of this man. We should all admire the traits Chadwick shared with us. And the inspiration he gave to millions of children around the globe who got to see a strong, meaningful and proud hero that looked like themselves.
We have had a lot of customers asking for this item, specially for the SUPER LIMITED Black/White Edition that retailers can not order at all, but will receive in limited quantities equal to 20% of the Spawn #311 they order. We decided to put together a package that would satisfy the demand for this book, as well as contribute to a charity in Chadwick Boseman’s name. Mr. Boseman died of cancer, so we will be contributing $5 from each package sold to the American Cancer Society, and urge you to either purchase one or more packages from this page, or contribute yourself to the American Cancer Society.
ONLY 125 of this package will be sold. Each package you purchase will include:
- 4 copies of the Spawn #311 Full Color Chadwick Boseman Tribute Cover
- 1 copy of the Spawn #311 Black/White Chadwick Boseman Tribute Cover
- 1 copy of Spawn #309 (2nd Print) featuring the most popular version of Spawn in recent years, Gunslinger Spawn
You can pick up a copy at one of our stores, by picking “LOCAL PICK UP – Store Name” of the store closest to you, IF you are local, or we can ship the package to you.
