The passing of Chadwick Boseman was a huge shock and we’re all still reeling from the loss. There have been tributes, an outpouring from fans and Boseman’s collaborators, as well a tribute to him gracing every Marvel Comics cover out last week and additional tributes this week. Today, Image Comics revealed Todd McFarlane is contributing to tributes to Boseman with a Spawn #311 cover.
Check out the cover below.
In a press release sent by Image Comics, McFarlane said, “Given the limited amount of minority characters in the comic industry today that are considered major Superheroes, I thought it appropriate for one of those well-known heroes (Spawn) to pay tribute to a man who made a lasting impact on helping shape such a strong superhero of color,” said McFarlane. “Chadwick Boseman is a person who honed his skills and then made a career using them. Then he fought a fight against his own body that showed the true spirit of this man. We should all admire the traits Chadwick shared with us. And the inspiration he gave to millions of children around the globe who got to see a strong, meaningful and proud hero that looked like themselves.”
Spawn #311 Cover B by McFarlane (Diamond Code AUG200369) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 28.
