Todd McFarlane started working in comics in 1984 where he drew for some of Marvel Comics' greatest titles such as The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man. After working his way to the top of the talent roster at Marvel, Todd left in 1992 to help found Image Comics with six other artists. It was then that Todd introduced his own character, Spawn. In 1994, Todd founded McFarlane Toys, because he wanted to maintain maximum creative control over his Spawn character. Over the years, the company has become one of the largest, most renowned toy manufacturers in the world.
