Todd McFarlane, creator of Spawn and founder of Image Comics, had a fascinating two part podcast interview with Tim Ferriss.
In Part 1: He discussed growing up and breaking into the comic book industry. He also spoke about his rise at Marvel where he eventually became the top selling author/artist and how he walked away from that to found Image Comics which was a hit from the start because of Spawn.
In Part 2: He discussed his friendship with Stan Lee, making best selling toys, getting into the music video industry, plus some pretty good life advice.
