Todd McFarlane homages historic X-Men #1 cover by Jim Lee in The Scorched #3
Todd McFarlane is paying homage to Jim Lee’s historic X-Men #1 cover beginning with The Scorched issue #3. McFarlane has revealed the artwork for the first cover and announced he will be drawing three more connecting covers in the coming months. The Scorched issues #3 through #6 will all connect to create one stunning piece of artwork to help celebrate Spawn’s 30 year anniversary this year.
McFarlane said: “Over the years, I have what seems like hundreds of homage/parody covers based on my artwork. So, it is always fun to turn the tables and do an homage to other covers and/or artists whose work I have admired. This will mark my first attempt at tipping my hat to my friend Jim Lee’s amazing art. His career and the images he has given us have been an inspiration for many. I thought this image would be the best way to pay tribute to his talents.”
The Scorched #3 will be available at comic book shops on March 16 (24 pages, full color, rated: Teen+, $2.99, FREE UPGRADE PREMIUM COVER STOCK) and on digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
