Image Comics will be celebrating 25 years in comics this month. Hard to believe that a fledgling studio founded by “rockstar” artists who would go on to make millions of dollars would still be around today.
Image was founded by Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Erik Larson, Marc Silvestri, Jim Valentino and… Todd McFarlane.
Our podcast will be focusing on Todd’s comic creation, SPAWN!
This 1st issue went on to sell 1.7 million copies. Sure that seems like a lot but that could have been a fluke! It was was thanks to the plucky spirit of the creators that Image studios persevered.
Jon and I go over a brief history of Todd McFarlane’s career prior to Spawn and then we will talk about the meager begins of the demonic anti-hero.
Press play for a little history lesson on one of the founding fathers of the Image Universe.
