Extended Interview: Todd McFarlane Looks Back on 300 Issues of Spawn

In 1992, Spawn kicked off a bold new era in the comics industry. Proving once and for all that creators not only had a viable avenue outside of "the big two," but that they could also generate record sales.

Now, 27-years later, Todd McFarlane's Spawn is about to make history all over again. How? In the above interview with PREVIEWsworld Weekly's Troy-Jeffrey Allen, creator Todd McFarlane reflects on 300 issues of his creation, creators, concepts, and crazy ideas that spawned the SPAWN legacy.

"When I created the character I actually drew a 40-page comic book that I began," McFarlane explains in the above interview. "The difference was that it was against the backdrop of science fiction...because of Star Wars -- the first Star Wars movie was about to come out," he reveals.
