Part 5) Todd McFarlane: Spawns a Legacy
Todd conquered his "four cornerstones" of a strong business foundation: comic books, toys, movies and television. Spawn, a feature film produced by New Line Cinema, opened August 1, 1997, grossing more than $100 million worldwide. HBO Television produced the multiple-Emmy-award-winning animated series, Todd McFarlane's Spawn from 1997-1999.
Today, Todd McFarlane is busier than ever. A new creative team has revitalized Spawn, which just passed its landmark 150th issue. Todd now has an eye on directing feature films, television and music videos.
For the man who was told, "No," more than 700 times before landing this first job penciling comic books, it's a very bright future.
