Official Press Release

"Adventures of Spawn"

ADVENTURES OF SPAWN, the high adventure re-imaging of Todd McFarlane's seminal creation, returns this November in a full color one-shot concluding the highly praised "Awakening War" storyline written by Jonathan David Goff and illustrated by fan favorite artist Khary Randolph!

"Working on this project has been like a dream come true for me," said Randolph. "When I was younger, it was books like Spawn that made me want to draw comic books for a living. So to actually have the ability to fulfill that dream on Spawn really can't be beat."

In ADVENTURES OF SPAWN, Al Simmons, now known as Spawn X, teams up with fellow heroes Omega and Redeemer in the never-ending battle against the forces of Darkness and its vicious leader, Mammon! While ADVENTURES OF SPAWN made its debut online as SPAWN.COM's very first web comic to coincide with McFarlane Toys' own toy line (Spawn: Series 30 & 32), this one-shot is the only place to read the story's conclusion in its entirety.

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane added, "It's fun is to see if your characters can fit into different settings, genres, mediums and/or formats - as a means to get your idea in front of more new eyes. ADVENTURES OF SPAWN is such an attempt. Unlike the regular title, this one is truly built around the word, 'adventure.' Join us as we dive head-first into a world of Spawn unlike the others I've populated."

THE ADVENTURES OF SPAWN #2 (SEP082222), a 48-page full color comic book for $5.99, will be in stores November 19th, 2008. For more information and to read the original web comic, please see http://www.spawn.com/features/series30/comic/ .
