From Image Comics With its 301st issue, Todd McFarlane’s SPAWN becomes the longest running creator-owned comic book in the world! SPAWN launched to record sales of 1.7 million copies when its inaugural issue was released in 1992, helping to cement the early days of Image Comics as a game-changing, new era in creator-owned comic books. Now, 27-years later SPAWN, and Image Comics remain hallmarks of the comic book industry. As a testament to the longevity of Todd McFarlane’s seminal creation, and to Image Comics’ revolutionary call for creators’ rights to own and control the characters and comic books they create, SPAWN’s 301st issue will be a truly historic release, as McFarlane’s award-winning, fan-favorite superhero, will become the longest running creator-owned comic book ever. "I could think of no better reason to return to the drawing board than to celebrate the record-breaking 301st issue of the SPAWN comic,” said McFarlane, creator of SPAWN and President at Imag

Unmade Horror Themed Spider-Man Movies Would Have Re-imagined His Origin

From Digital Spy Spider-Man hasn’t always been in the steady hands of Sony and Marvel. In 1985, the rights to make a Spider-Man movie actually passed from Roger Corman to Cannon Films. As much as we love B-movie supremo Roger Corman, his Fantastic Four adaptation wasn’t exactly MCU standard. It wasn’t even good enough to release officially (producer Berndt Eichinger reputedly only made it so that he could keep hold of the rights to the property). Related: Amazing Spider-Man #102 (1963 1st Series) November 1971 Marvel Comics Grade Fine+ Cannon, meanwhile, weren’t known for their quality-control standards. The exchange basically meant that Spidey went from the frying pan into the fire. Cannon chiefs Menahem Golan and his cousin Yoram Globus paid just $225,000 for a five-year option (the rights reverted back to Marvel if a movie wasn’t made before 1990), and somehow still didn’t manage to profit from the licence. Part of the problem was that they fundamentally didn’t get th

The Four Faces Of Doctor Who

Image
The Fourth Doctor is an incarnation of the Doctor, the protagonist of the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who. He was portrayed by Tom Baker. Within the series' narrative, the Doctor is a centuries-old Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels in time and space in his TARDIS, frequently with companions. At the end of life, the Doctor can regenerate his body; as a result, his physical appearance and personality change. Baker portrays the fourth such incarnation, a whimsical and sometimes brooding individual whose enormous personal warmth is at times tempered by his capacity for righteous anger. His initial companion was intrepid journalist Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), who had traveled alongside him in his previous incarnation, and she is later joined by surgeon Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter). His later companions included robotic dog K9, savage alien warrior Leela (Louise Jameson), Time Lady Romana (Mary Tamm and Lalla Ward), alien teenage aristocrat
