Todd McFarlane - The Devil You Know

A legend to his legions of fans, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane is the most successful comic book artist in history. Over the past decade, this shrewd and enigmatic entrepreneur has grown his business into a multi-million dollar entertainment empire encompassing comics, action figures, television, video games, and music videos. In addition to an Emmy-award winning television series for HBO and a $100 million feature film, the Spawn comic has sold over 150 million copies since 1992 - more than any other urban drama character including Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, and Wolverine. This documentary offers audiences an engaging look at the man behind Spawn's thrillingly dark and edgy images and exposes the many sides of McFarlane - from corporate rebel to dedicated family man to unrelenting baseball enthusiast. McFarlane is a controversial yet likeable character, a self-confessed man of "contradictions and inconsistencies," who ultimately just wants to play by his own rules.
