Todd McFarlane is paying homage to one-time Image partner Jim Lee’s X-Men #1 interconnecting covers beginning with The Scorched #3. Today we get the first of four covers by McFarlane with all connecting to create one huge piece of artwork to help celebrate Spawn’s 30 year anniversary this year.
“Over the years, I have what seems like hundreds of homage/parody covers based on my artwork. So, it is always fun to turn the tables and do an homage to other covers and/or artists whose work I have admired. This will mark my first attempt at tipping my hat to my friend Jim Lee’s amazing art. His career and the images he has given us have been an inspiration for many. I thought this image would be the best way to pay tribute to his talents.”
The Scorched #3 will be available at comic book shops on March 16th from Image Comics
