Sounds like they were trying to appeal more to than just the **** fan. Make it available to everyone that has some interest in the the art, the man, history of A to Z.

sounds good...and I know what you mean by even more art would have been cool.

I am not sure they could have packed more...but even as I was moving through the spider man section I was wanting more.

but that said....I'd totally agree Todd dug deep for this and like just about everything he puts out...it's the best quality and I'd highly recommend it to anyone interested in comics or Todd's art.

Comic Book Legends Revealed #482: What Panel caused Todd to quit Marvel

Spider-Man Issue #16 Printed Page



Spider-Man Issue #16 Original Page



I remember this book and that panel very well. But as someone mentioned in the comments section, I too remember the 'Original' panel as well and had seen print. Second printing perhaps?

CBR TV: McFarlane on "Spawn" Numbering, Al Simmons' Return and the Future of Image Comics

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv9d0RNcKDw

Great interview. I actually read the transcript to this interview last week. But you have to hear Todd talk because he brings so much enthusiasm to everything he is addressing. He makes you excited for comic books, movies, Image, Spawn and anything else that's on his plate.

You talking about those miniatures on the glass cage where he was signing? Whatever they were, they looked great. Was tempted to push the display over, grab him and get the f*ck outta dodge.

I saw the pieces at comic con Chip.  My friend works for them...and they were setting them up.

Neumatic.  I don't know the price point...my guess is they would be inline with a Lego style pricing...so sets might range from $12-60- or more depending on what the set includes.

Todd McFarlane The Devil You Know

https://www.youtube.com/w...Esq-H-mNmQhk&index=49


Interesting Doc. There's a lot of behind the scenes stuff that I've never seen until now. I don't know how old this is. Looks like it was made 15 years ago based on the fact that they actually show Todd bidding for Mark McGwire's record breaking home run balls. The look on his face as he realizes he is spending way too much for these balls his priceless. We all know they are worthless now for the obvious reasons. That dude with 1500 (at last count) McFarlane Toys is nuts and Todd nailed it in how to keep them hooked because once you "give a collector a reason not to buy it.....they are gone". I collect a few things here and there, but it's not extreme. I for one am glad that I don't collect Comics or Toys anymore because I would hate to be that guy. To be chained to your stuff like that would feel like a noose around your neck.

Sneak Peek at Spawn Kills Everyone And Giveaway Announcement

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljMoYHfTpY0


Having just watched this video the other night, I was under the impression that Todd was doing all the artwork. We get a glimpse here and it looks great and made me want to get this. Having done a little bit a research, looks like art duties are being handled by J.J. Kirby and Todd. No idea how many pages each is doing. Doesn't matter.  I'll take it. Plan on getting this....a rare comic book buy for me.

Spider-Man to Spawn, How Todd McFarlane Became the Biggest Comic Book Artist Ever | Blueprint

https://www.youtube.com/w...9ff20O1Z1QPMw&index=1

This is without a doubt the best f*cking TM interview ever. Talk about inspiring! I love how defiant Todd is with some of his answers. Seriously, this is good sh*t from start to finish. Riveting.
