New Spawn Animation

I have very fond memories of the Spawn animated show that used to air on HBO.  The series ran for three years, and even won a few Emmy Awards. Well, it looks like we might be getting some more animated Spawn!

On his Facebook page, creator Todd McFarlane has given us a first look at some of the animation design. First up Sam and Twitch!

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!

Are you looking forward to Spawn’s animated return?
