FROM THE ARCHIVES

SPAWN CHROMIUM (trading card number 87) 
Michael Allred – Front and Back Art
1996 / Wildstorm / 1 (of 99) cards

Front and back of the card. Check out Madman’s cape made from a Twister game mat, plus his gloves haven’t been coloured blue!

Another special guest appearance by Madman on a card. This Spawn and Madman team up comes from the Spawn Chromium card set. Spawn is Todd McFarlane’s premiere character that was part of the birth of Image Comics.

There’s a few notable points about this card set. This card is only in the full regular set. (There’s an ‘archives’ version of the set, but it only contains the first 50 cards, so doesn’t include this little gem, being that it’s card #87.)

The card is titled: Spawn And Madman and it’s from the Friends Of Spawn series in the set. I’m not too sure when and how Spawn and Madman became friends, as they haven’t really appeared together in any comics! All the other ‘Friends Of Spawn’ are characters from Spawn comics.

Also this is a ‘chromium’ card. Chromium comic covers and cards were all the rage in the 90’s! The front of the card is metallic and shiny. The dark grey area is actually reflective silver. Some of Madman and Spawn’s outlines also look to have been etched which gives the artwork bit of an overall 3D look. The image stands out quite nicely!

Other notable artists that contributed to the set are Jim Lee, Bill Sienkiewicz, Adam Hughes, Tony Daniel, J. Scott Campbell, Dale Keown, Bart Sears, Greg Capullo and of coarse McFarlane.
