Image Comics “The Scorched” unites Todd McFarlane’s first-ever superhero team and further expands the Spawn universe with exciting new characters.

The Scorched #1 - Todd McFarlane Image Comics

The Year of Spawn continues with Todd McFarlane’s newest book, The Scorched #1. This new book comes hot off the heels of three record-breaking books, Spawn’s Universe #1, King Spawn #1 and Gunslinger Spawn #1, which were the biggest selling Image Comics books in the 21st century.

The Scorched #1 is the first all-new issue of McFarlane’s Superhero team book. After 30 years of the regular monthly Spawn book, The Scorched gathers the best of the characters for three decades and puts them together into one title. The initial characters in The Scorched #1 first issue will include: Reaper, Spawn, Redeemer, Gunslinger, Medieval Spawn, She-Spawn, and many more waiting in the wings.

McFarlane again enlisted some top creative talent to contribute to The Scorched including writer Sean Lewis and artists Stephen Segovia and Paulo Sequeria. Featuring cover art by Frank Quitely, Greg Capullo, Don Aguillo, fellow Image founder Mark Silvestri, Brett Booth, and McFarlane. Booth’s cover of The Scorched #1 interconnects with King Spawn #1 and Gunslinger Spawn #1 to form one epic work of art. McFarlane explained:

“The Scorched will allow myself and the creative team to bring in a rotating cast of heroes and villains and to have fun creating new characters and storylines.”

The Scorched #1, with multiple variant covers, will be available at comic book shops (48 pages, full color, rated: Teen+, $5.99, premium 10 pt cover stock) and on digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play on Wednesday, December 15:
