Todd McFarlane, Image Comics’ President and Spawn creator, will join the tributes being paid to the late Black Panther actor, Chadwick Boseman on a variant cover for the upcoming Spawn #311. And, here’s why:
“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.”
Spawn #311 Cover B by McFarlane will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 28th.
