For those old enough to remember the Image Comic Spawn once aired on HBO for three seasons from 1997-1999. And not only was the animated series an 2 time Primetime Emmy winner, it was a huge success with fans and ever since the show went off the air fans have been clamoring for more.
Well yesterday, Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane hit his Facebook page to reveal some artwork on a new version of the animated series that fans hope will be coming soon to the small screen. Todd wrote the following:
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!
