Image Comics has announced Spawn #166 has sold out at Diamond. The company says it is due in large part to new artist Brian Haberlin and writer David Hine.
“Todd wanted us to grab people by the lapels and tell ’em that Spawn is back!” says writer David Hine. “The whole creative team felt supercharged, and it shows in the book. Once I saw Haberlin’s art – particularly that soul-chilling last page – I knew we had a hit on our hands.”
Image says it will go back to press on this title, and have sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek for those who missed it the first time.
Here’s how Image describes the issue:
SPAWN #166 chronicles Spawn’s life after the epic conclusion to the Armageddon story line. Spawn has returned to the alleyways of New York and found that not everything is right in the world. Part gritty crime story and part cutting edge horror, the opening salvo of Hine and Haberlin’s new direction is easily the most talked about issue since the series’ debut.
