Todd McFarlane Teases New SPAWN Animated Project With Concept Art
Just about an hour ago, Todd McFarlane posted a message on his facebook page. The message, which you can read below in its entirety, teases a new animated Spawn project. McFarlane also provided a sneak peek - three pieces of concept art. The first image is character designs for the NYPD homicide detectives, Sam Burke and Maximilian "Twitch" Williams. Their partnership is built on one of them being the brawn and the other being the brains. I'll let you guess which is which. They were so popular that in 1999 they received their own spinoff comic. The other two images McFarlane released are of the gritty locale that Spawn/Al Simmons will surely inhabit.
From 1997 to 1999, HBO produced the animated series, Todd McFarlane's Spawn. It even won an Emmy for Outstanding Animation Program in 1999. Now a new animated Spawn project is in the works and McFarlane is using his facebook page to tease it.
For ALL of you that have been asking...here's a SNEAK PEEK at some NEW SPAWN ANIMATION that is in the works!!!!!! Don't tell anyone I showed you because you're the FIRST to see it!!!!!!
At every convention and in every interview I do I am asked a couple of repetitive questions: "When is the new Spawn movie coming and when are we going to see more Animation like we did on HBO years ago?" (I also get a lot of 'when are you going to draw The Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel again?'...)For those of you that don't know, the original Spawn Animation was aired on HBO for three years and won a couple of Emmy Awards. Ever since it went off the air, fans have been bugging me to bring it back. Well, for your eyes only, here are some early images of a few key characters and a rough of a city street in black and white and in color.
If you all seem interested there is LOTS and LOTS more I can show you!!!!!! I may even put up some of the voice tracks for you.
Oh...and just wait until you see SPAWN himself!
Todd McFarlane's Spawn (1997) - There is a war going on between heaven and hell. Earth is the battlefield. Human souls are the prize. On the front lines, where good and evil collide, is a soldier in search of his past and his future: Spawn. HBO presents this groundbreaking animated series based on the mega-successful comic-book series. Combining fantastic imagery with action, romance, and high-level espionage, Season 1 of the series introduces Spawn, formerly known as Al Simmons — a CIA hit man whose death causes him to seal a deal with the devil so that he can return to his wife Wanda. Instead, the devil transforms him into "hell-spawn," a dark warrior who battles the forces of evil on Earth—and in himself—to uncover the truth about his identity and fulfill his destiny.
