In a recent interview with CBR, Todd MacFarlane announced that Spawn #250 will feature the return of Al Simmons, the first and original Spawn. That was news to the many comics readers who thought that Spawn had been cancelled 150 issues ago, but what was even more surprising was that McFarlane was planning on bringing in a "heavy hitter" to write and/or draw the series.
McFarlane didn't want to say exactly who he was bringing in for Spawn's anniversary issue, but Bleeding Cool (and a couple of other folks at SDCC) are reporting that Grant Morrison will be returning for at least one issue of the Image series. Morrison wrote three issues of Spawn back in the book's early days (along with other major creators such as Neil Gaiman and Dave Sim) and it would be fitting for him to return to the book for its big anniversary issue. No word on if he'll be joined by a big name artist, or if, in retaliation for Neil Gaiman stealing Angela from MacFarlane and running off to Marvel, Morrison will bring his greatest creation, the X-Man Beak, into the Spawn Universe, but we'll probably find out in a couple of days.
