Todd McFarlane Pays Tribute to Chadwick Boseman with Killer SPAWN Tribute Cover

If you didn’t know, Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) passed away back in August after battling cancer. And today we learned that Todd McFarlane has included a Boseman tribute on the cover of an upcoming issue of Spawn.

McFarlane revealed the cover on Facebook, writing: “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. 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.”
