About Spawn:
Spawn was a comic book first published by McFarlane and friends who spun off from the mainstream comic publishing industry in 1992.

Spawn is a dark hero, troubled with the dual aspects of good and evil found in all people. With an appeal to adults, Spawn broke the mould in American comics, selling 1.7 million in its first issue. Published on a monthly basis, Spawn has continuously gained new fans, and is now read by people in 80 countries around the world, translated into 30 languages. It has reached a total of 24 million sales in the US.
Aspiring to bring this character to perfection as a toy, Todd McFarlane started up a toy manufacturer in 1994 and began selling Spawn figures. Featuring details not found on any other toy, Spawn toys became a huge hit, igniting a global boom in figures. A total of 2.8million figures have been sold around the globe, with new products constantly being released.

Spawn also developed into an animated television series, broadcast on American cable networks, and was made into a Hollywood film in 1997. Announcements have been made for a theatrical movie at the end of 2004.
