Image Unveils “Spawn” #286 “We Believe In Colorists” Variants

Hey my fellow comic book fans, I am back with another interesting crop of variant cover editions and this time its the colorists that will be getting the love as a number of hot industry names take on the cover of an issue of “Spawn”. Read on down below and check out the stuff provided to us by Image Comics PR.

The Press Release:
PORTLAND, OR, 04/03/2018 — Image Comics is pleased to reveal the black and white SPAWN #286 cover artwork by legendary artist Todd McFarlane and the seven Colorist Appreciation variants that display the high impact of colorists on the artistic medium.

A selection of bestselling colorists — Moreno Dinisio, Frank Martin, Matthew Wilson, Owen Gieni, Annalisa Leoni, Nikos Koutsis, Jean-Francois Beaulieu — each put their own spin on the same McFarlane cover for these #WeBelieve in Colorists variants, and each cover displays their radically different techniques and stunning results.

“Colorists’ important contributions to our medium cannot be overstated, and even the best artwork can benefit from the involvement of just the right colorist,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “When I’m watching pages come in for a comic from the first pitch to the finished project, it’s often when the colorist gets involved that the book really begins to take shape, when the personality of the artwork and the storytelling really shine through. Once upon a time, colorists were just the last stop on the production train, but today, colorists are essential and trusted collaborators—often moving with artists or writer/artist teams from project to project. Every colorist has their own voice, and there’s no better way to highlight just how different finished artwork can look than by showing off the handiwork of seven different colorists and how their approach has impacted a single piece of artwork. We’re all thrilled with the result, and we hope you’re equally excited to see how the same artwork can look in the hands of multiple colorists.”
