Tuesday afternoon, I get to interview Image founder Todd McFarlane. I'm very privileged for this opportunity. Hopefully, I'll post the interview and a review of his biography soon after my chat with Todd.

Also, Spawn #225 is coming out November 21. I may or may not review. I'm not a big fan of Spawn.

Anyways, do you have questions or suggestions? Nothing snarky, please!

Is it your love of the comics that has made you so successful with all of the businesses surrounding comics, or is it your love of the surrounding businesses that has kept you going strong in comics?

I honestly wouldn't know what to ask.
Not that I'd be star struck, but it'd either be questions he hears every day (what inspired you, how did you come up with xyz etc) or snarky stuff (So, how's Al Simmons doing?)

Maybe...since he was part of a (sort of) revolution in comics back in the day, what does he feel his legacy will be?

Does he feel there's still a future in (paper) comic books?
Will the industry as it is survive, does it need to change, etc?

And..yeah, what made him decide to expand and start an empire?

1. At what point did you realize that you were bored with Marvel?
2. Are you going back to do Haunting?
3. Will Spawn ever get a good movie?

I would love to know more about his thought process about using Angela, Cogliostro, and Medieval Spawn (all created by Neil Gaiman) to be used extensively in Spawn's backstory and used as main characters. I would specifically want to know why he wouldn't use original characters and relegate the "Gaiman Three" to occasional guest star status since he doesn't own them 100%.

Thank you all for the contributions. I'm a bit nervous and am going through his upcoming biography and will think up questions.

I won't plan on being direct about Gaiman, because Todd lost the lawsuit against Gaiman and there's a chance he may not be jovial about it. If I address creators' rights in regards to Spawn, I'll try to ease into discussion of characters.


    1. At what point did you realize that you were bored with Marvel?
    2. Are you going back to do Haunting?
    3. Will Spawn ever get a good movie?


First, I'm assuming he'll bring up the infamous panel in Spider-Man #16 where a guy stabs Juggernaut in the eye but Marvel wouldn't allow it. I can't imagine what new insights he'll bring beyond that incident or "I wanted full control"-type sayings. Second, he (and also co-creator Robert Kirkman, who isn't writing on it) may be very busy with other things, but I'll find a way to discuss Haunt and what plans he has for it.

Third, I'll ask about new Spawn series/movies.

Stuff about his future and legacy and place in history are topics I'll address towards the end.

I'm finished. Todd was pleasant to speak with. He has a really sharp mind and is very passionate about his work. I did ask most of the questions from you all. I'm glad about those 2 hours. If the mp3 is decent, I'll edit it then post it up later.

Now I need to decompress.

After all this time, I've finished editing. Expect the link soon. Hopefully, the end product leaves everyone with their dignity intact.

He's definitely passionate about some things, e.g. politics.

To the person asking about digital comics: I couldn't get all the static out. Todd's response is there, but it's not 100% clear. (-_-)

Link's active; I hope you enjoy: Red-Headed Mule's Todd McFarlane Interview

That's not really a Spoiler; however John says he's got it. Marvel.com shows that it is available in print. I'm just annoyed. I'm currently harassing marvel on twitter for answers but to no avail. I'm absolutely stunned by how aggravated I am by this.
