McFarlane, Todd:Todd McFarlane (Canadian, b. 1961): is a multi-talented cartoonist, writer, toy designer and entrepreneur, most celebrated for his work on Marvel’s Incredible Hulk, and Spider-Man, as well as on his own character, Spawn. In the early nineties, McFarlane became the first of a new breed of independent comic book superstars, thanks to the p[opularity of his work on Marvel’s titles. In 1992, he and several of the new wave of comics creators formed Image Comics. McFarlane based his hugely successful, occult, anti-hero Spawn on a character from his high school portfolio and updated the concept for the nineties. In recent years, McFarlane has focused most of his time on his entrepreneurial efforts, McFarlane Toys and Todd McFarlane Entertainment, a film and animation studio.
