Todd McFarlane Sets A Guinness World Record With SPAWN, Plus Will We See New McFarlane DC Product At NYCC?

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago with the publishing of SPAWN 301, Todd McFarlane stepped into uncharted territory in the comic world! Todd McFarlane has officially earned the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the longest-running creator-owned superhero comic book series for his creation of SPAWN.

"Any record that is based on longevity, is made on the backs of dozens of people. As much as I am proud to be receiving this award, I gratefully accept it on behalf of all those who helped me the past 27 years on this journey." - Todd McFarlane

Fans are invited to witness Todd McFarlane receive his official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS certificate this week at New York Comic Con! The ceremony will be taking place on Saturday, October 5th prior to Todd McFarlane's very own panel, The Road to Historic SPAWN 300 and 301. The panel will be taking place in Room #1A10 from 5:45- 6:45 P.M.

As for DC Comics and whether or not we will see any reveals from McFarlane Toys this weekend for their new 2020 action figure line that was announced back during Toy Fair in February, sadly the answer is no. We have gotten confirmation from the folks at McFarlane Toys that they will not be showing anything off for that until 2020.

For those hoping to see McFarlane at this weekend's New York Comic Con, here is a breakdown of his complete schedule:

How awesome is this, congratulations to Todd. I've been following him since he did those great Detective comics covers for DC to his historic stint with Marvel to his own creation "Spawn". 

Couldn't happen to a better guy!

Congrats to Todd! Spawn really shook up the comic and action figure worlds in the 90s.

Spawn reaching 300  just makes me feel old lol.  Also, I’ve spent a fair amount of time crossing paths with Todd and recent years and have to say he looks like he’s barely aged in the past 300 issues.  Must have struck a deal with the devil ;)

I really hope that one day I can get my Spawn #1 signed by him. One of my favorite characters outside DC and Marvel.
