Todd McFarlane reveals the Scorched #6 cover artwork, the final of the four connecting covers that pays homage to Jim Lee’s historic X-Men #1 covers.
This marks the first time McFarlane has drawn a four-cover connecting artwork spread in his career. Scorched issues #3 through #6 connect to create one stunning piece of artwork commemorating Spawn’s 30th anniversary in 2022.
McFarlane said: “The X-Men and Jim Lee’s artwork have inspired a whole generation of new comic book artists, and I wanted to tip my hat to Jim’s enormous impact on our industry. This marked the first time I have done any connecting covers, let alone four of them! I hope to keep reminding new customers that there was a time in the 1990s when our industry was near the zenith of excitement and innovative styles. Jim Lee was helping to lead that pack.”
McFarlane’s Scorched #1, launched in January 2022, set the sales record for the “Biggest New Team Book” from the past 30 years. This supergroup of heroes and villains includes Spawn, Cy-Gor, Overtkil, Redeemer, Gunslinger, Haunt, Soul Crusher, Medieval Spawn, She-Spawn, and more fan-favorite characters waiting in the wings.
