Greg Capullo Covers Image United #2

The Spawn and Haunt artist adds his touch to the Image characters.

I really enjoyed the first issue of Image United.  For me, it was mainly a nostalgia thing.  Even though the story was just getting set up, I could feel the excitement over the entire arc building up inside of me.  Image announced earlier this week that Greg Capullo, artist on Spawn and Haunt, will be doing a one-time variant cover featuring the entire cast up against the main villain of the series, Omega Spawn.

"When it came time to choose an artist for our next guest variant, Greg Capullo was the first guy who came to mind," Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson said. "From his early days following Todd on SPAWN to his creator-owned series CREECH and his work on HAUNT, Greg has become nearly as synonymous with Image Comics as any of the founders. Besides that, he's also a phenomenal cover artist in his own right. We're thrilled to have him on board." 

Retailers can order as many copies of the colored version as they wish.  There will also be a limited edition 1:100 black and white version.  Good luck finding that one.
Issue #2 will be a 32-page full color comic with a $3.99 price.  It's on sale December 23, 2009

I just might get this one.  I like the art, that looks great, a lot of action.  However, did Shaft jump off something?  I don't recall him being able to fly or anything of that nature.  Same with Ripclaw.  I know, I know, its just a cover.  Sounds like I'm griping but I do like that cover!

Capullo has always been one of my favorite artists. I really need to read Image United.

Isn't it a trifle bit unnerving that something from the 90's has a nostalgia factor??
The cover art looks pretty wicked.

Well Yung, Al Simmons killed himself and cameback as something similar to Ipsissimus, there's a new Spawn who's teamed up with the other Image heroes to stop him! 
Awesome cover Mr. Capullo!

Also, Al Simmons's Spawn just announced in #1 that he's going by the name of "Omega Spawn".
