Cartoonist, artist, writer, toy designer and entrepreneur, Todd is best known for his work in comic books, such as the series Spawn. McFarlane became a comic book superstar due to his work on Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man franchise, on which he was the artist to draw the first full appearances of the supervillain Venom. In 1992, he helped form Image Comics, pulling the occult anti-hero character Spawn from his high school portfolio and updating him for the 1990s. Spawn was a popular hero in the 1990s and encouraged a trend in creator-owned comic book properties. Since leaving his duties on Spawn, McFarlane has illustrated comic books less often, focusing on entrepreneurial efforts, such as McFarlane Toys and Todd McFarlane Entertainment, a film and animation studio.
How cool is that? Since tickets are extremely limited, make sure you are there early. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
