Todd McFarlane prepares us for 2021: the year he expands the Spawn universe, starting with a four-chapter one-shot, finalizing three new monthly titles.
Sales for Spawn’s first issue release in 1992 set the record for most copies sold of a creator-owned comic book – and is still the reigning champ. Get in on the ground floor for the expansion of one of the bestselling and longest-run comics: tell us you want it added to your pull list today! Spawn Universe #1 is now available in-store.
Following the Spawn Universe one-shot, three new monthly titles are being released: King Spawn (August release), Gunslinger Spawn, and The Scorched.
McFarlane is very excited to the launching new monthly titles for the first time in almost 30 years. He says, “I’ve waited almost 30 years to be able to get to this moment. To deliver on ideas, I hope they will grow from this initial seed called SPAWN’S UNIVERSE #1 into a fully formed world populated with hundreds and hundreds of characters in the near future. The stage will be set with this book, and soon I’ll be launching into new monthly titles for the first time since 1992. I can’t wait to show comic readers all the crazy ideas in my head as well as opening up the floodgate to so many talented creators that have said they’d like to join me on this journey.”
The Star Wars galaxy universe is coming out with a new six-part series chronicling Boba Fett’s adventures while delivering a frozen (but alive) Han Solo to Jabba the Hut: Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters. Poor Boba tries to make it a quick delivery, but as with everything involving Hans… it’s not so simple.
Prelude Releases in May
Marvel gets other Star Wars series in on the Bounty Hunter action for those of us that want to really nerd out – and they’re kind enough to provide a handy-dandy checklist of all the tie-ins.
Contact us to add War of the Bounty Hunters to your pull today (starting with the Alpha issue!) and be sure to let us know if you’d like any of the tie-in issues for the full story.
Follow the story of a centuries-old immortal demi-god known as ‘B’ in BRZRKR, BOOM! Studios’ newest series written as Keanu Reeves’ first original comic book creation, and co-written with bestselling author Matt Kindt.
BRZRKR, cursed and compelled to violence, has been wandering the world for centuries. The story picks up in modern day, when he’s made an agreement with the US Government: do the jobs too dangerous and violent for anyone else, and in return, they’ll give him the truth about his existence.
The first of the twelve-part series will be released on February 24, 2021. You can reserve your copy or by contacting us to pre-order or add the series to your pull list!

I waited on the trade for Something is Killing the Children and I’m glad I did. This books is a slow-burn, horror comic written by James Tynion III with art by Werther Dell’Edera. What’s it about? A bunch of children have been disappearing in a small town and a lone survivor is left to hold the weight of the town’s fear and anger. He needs a supporter in and comes when we are introduced to Erica Slaughter, a mysterious young lady that drifts into town and says she knows ‘what’ is taking the disappearing children and that she can stop it. She’s a monster killer and part of an organization that appears to handle these types of situations. The story is great and the art is solid. If you want to check out the first issue, they are reprinting it for Local Comic Shop Day, so let us know and we can order you up a copy (release: 11/18). We also carry the trade paperback if you want to jump in and read the first 5 issues! (I found this the best way as each issue had me wanting to what happens next).
