24 November 2008 (Berkeley, CA) - Image Comics and MySpace have teamed up to release Todd McFarlane and Whilce Portacio's SPAWN relaunch as the second issue sells out at a distribution-level!
"Todd McFarlane Productions is excited to be partnering with Myspace Comics to bring the fans Spawn #185," McFarlane said. "Myspace Comics is the wave of the new generation. Many fans have turned to this form of modern communication. I hope you enjoy looking at a medium that is challenging how things have been traditionally done."
SPAWN #185 shocked comics fandom with its series-altering death of Al Simmons, lead of the series since its debut in 1992, and the mysterious awakening of the long comatose Patient 47. While the link between Simmons' death and Patient 47 is still unknown, this past week's #186 gave the first hints and resulted in yet another immediate sell-out. While limited copies may be available through your local comic book store, a new printing will soon be available.
SPAWN #185, a full-color 22-page comic, is available to read online for free at the link above. Copies of SPAWN #185 2ND PTG (SEP088230), a full-color 32-page comic book for $2.95, are still available.
