So today I have to tell you Batman and Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn will be teaming up in a comic book, and even though I can’t hear any of you, I know what you’re all saying to me: “What, now? Why didn’t they do that in the 90s?” The answer is, they DID do it in the 90s. They’re just doing it again.
Will 2021 be the Year of Spawn? It’d be weird if things turned out that way, but his creator, Todd McFarlane, believes he can make it happen. He has his eyes on a Cinematic Universe of his own making and he’s announced plans to lay the foundation with an expanded Spawn-centric lineup at Image this year.
Superhero films are a part of the yearly box office, but most of them focus on DC and Marvel characters. However, there are some others that are going to try and make a splash soon. One of them is Spawn, which will be directed by its creator, Todd McFarlane.
Image Comics changed the comic book industry in many ways, with the main thing being that they proved that you can be independent in terms of making comics, and that the they can go beyond superheroes and the like. One of the top comics they made was a book called Cyber Force, which was made under their Top Cow imprint. Now, as part of the Image Comics 25th Anniversary, Comic Book Resources reports that Cyber Force is coming back via Top Cow.
Image Comics is teaming up with IDW Games to produce a new board game based around their Wayward comic book. The game is being designed by Jon Gilmour, co-designer of other games such as Dead of Winter and Outpost: Siberia. Wayward writer Jim Zub and illustrator Steven Cummings are cooperating with IDW to ensure authenticity.
During New York Comic Con, Image Co-Founder and comic legend Todd McFarlane revealed that he would be working with Savage Dragon co-creator and fellow Image Co-Founder Erik Larsen to help breathe new life into his series Spawn. And in an interview with Comic Book Resources, the way these two came together was both funny, and very cool.
