Todd McFarlane Unveils Spawn Documentary Trailer

Deadline reports that the singular career and the sprawling pursuits of Todd McFarlane are the subject of McFarlane: A Documentary, a new Syfy Wire production that will air on Syfy channel and via online platforms by year’s end. The trailer is available today here.

McFarlane, one of the special guests this week at New York Comic Con, is the high-energy, self-made entertainment mogul who made his name as a fan-favorite artist on Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel but struck out on his own with the horror-fantasy superhero called Spawn, which promptly became one of the signature indie success stories in American comics history.

Syfy leveraged its ongoing partnership with Tongal, the content creation platform, to develop this “by the fans, for the fans” documentary, which was directed by David Oster and features interviews with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada, and DC Comics publisher Jim Lee.
