Spawn #300 Gets A Second Printing

Not sure why or how but yes, we are getting another printing.

Image Comics is pleased to announce that the highly-anticipated, milestone issue—SPAWN #300 by Todd McFarlane, President at Image Comics and creator of SPAWN—has sold out at the distributor level. It is being fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.

The record-setting SPAWN #300 hit comic shops shelves yesterday. The SPAWN #300, second printing (Diamond Code JUL198857) will be available on Wednesday, October 2.

Momentum and frenzied buzz surrounding the classic antihero series continues to build leading into the record-breaking SPAWN #301—also scheduled to hit stores on Wednesday, October 2—when SPAWN becomes the longest running creator-owned comic in the world.

SPAWN is currently being adapted for film—a gritty, R-rated reimagining—which will mark Image President, co-founder and SPAWN creator, Todd McFarlane’s film directorial debut. McFarlane, an Emmy/Grammy-winning producer/director is also on board as screenwriter and producer.

SPAWN sold an unprecedented 1.7 million copies at the time it was released and is one of the world’s best-selling and longest-running monthly comic books, with hundreds of millions sold worldwide in more than 120 countries, and 15 different languages.

The comic became an Emmy Award-winning animated series on HBO and a New Line Cinema feature film that grossed more than $100 million. McFarlane went on to direct and produce award-winning and critically acclaimed projects for top movie studios and record labels.

  1. The order code is not active at Diamond for placing orders yet. At the time they released this announcement 5 Covers were still in stock at Diamond available to order 1st Printings for. Right now Covers E and H are still showing as in stock. Until they activate the order code at Diamond the FOC date can’t be certain although I’m expecting it to be Monday.

  2. They have now sold out all the covers at Diamond finally. So far I’ve sold one cover to a walk in that didn’t preorder and that was one of the extra 25 Qty Ratio’s Cover K’s. All 3 of the largest Preorders have all picked up or been shipped now so it’s been good for cash flow this week. Only one of those has jumped on everything for 301 so far and FOC is approaching fast.

    1. I had a whole half box damaged from shipping on the Cover B. Crazy.. like 50 comics. Whats intresting is that the boxes wernt diamonds, they were from the printer. they had box numbers too. anyone know if those correspond to print run? like box X of X with 100 comics in a case ?

      1. I’ve never been able to confirm print run estimates from that yet. I suspect that with some comics they get printed from multiple printers/printing companies so that could be just the one’s from that printer but not the whole print size itself. It may also refer to how many sealed cases are getting palletized together for a single shipment to Diamond also.

        An easy example of that is I have cases 345 and 353 of 431 for Walking Dead 193. That’s 80 per case so that comes to 34,480 comics in that shipment but Comichron says they sold 111,121 or over 3 times that many so it would appear Diamond got at least 3 shipments of Walking Dead 193 from maybe as many as 3 printers.
