To celebrate hitting issue #250, Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn, created an infographic showing the costume design evolution of his character over 24 years. I have friend who has every issue of Spawn and most of the variant covers.
From McFarlane on Facebook:
THE EVOLUTION OF Spawn!!!!!
With Spawn issue #250 coming up at the end of the month.... I thought it would be COOL to put together all the different costumes Spawn has had over the years.
And if you're doing the math, that's 24 YEARS. TWENTY-FOUR!!!!!!!! It's cool to look back and see how things have changed since 1992....it's hard to believe we're already coming up on our #250th issue.
Thanks for all your support over the years!!! I'll be doing a giveaway with these, soon.
P.S.- There have been a few requests for a downloadable poster (and higher res)... You should be able to download the poster from this link: https://flic.kr/p/qKcR9q
With all the great superhero movies being made now, the 1997 Spawn movie feels like a generally underdeveloped film. We've heard McFarlane tease us for years about doing a new one. It seems to me a hard R-rated film might not have a very huge market (case in point: Dredd). A smaller market means the movie can only responsibly have a smaller budget. I highly doubt Marvel or DC will ever come out with another R-rated film - the PG-13 rating just proves to be too profitable. Let's hope McFarlane finally makes a Spawn movie fans can be proud of.
