BERKELEY, CA — 22 December, 2005 — With one volume of material back after years of being out-of-print and one volume of never-before-reprinted material out this week, one thing is for sure – the continuing popularity of SPAWN after all these years.
This week, the SPAWN COLLECTION, VOL. 1 TP and the SPAWN MANGA, VOL. 1 TP were released and before even hitting the shelves, both books have now completely sold out at Diamond.
â€œItâ€™s great to see the enthusiasm for SPAWN after all these years,” said Todd McFarlane. “We intended to invigorate the title and obviously the selling out of issue 150, the Trade, and Manga shows weâ€™re on the right track. We appreciate the support, and plan to build on that momentum.â€
Both collections were well overprinted, but advance orders in the weeks before the books hit the shelves depleted the entire inventory. With the huge demand for the collections, Image Comics and Todd McFarlane Productions are announcing an immediate reprinting of both volumes, which should arrive back in stores by early February.
SPAWN COLLECTION VOL 1 TP (AUG051640) collects issues #1-8, 10 and 11 of SPAWN by Todd McFarlane.
SPAWN MANGA VOL 1 TP (SEP051669) is the first of three volumes collecting the entire SPAWN Manga series, never before published in the United States and created by Manga Master Juzo Tokoro.
