Todd McFarlane is partnering with video game store giant GameStop for something special this week; Something called ‘McFarlane Day’.
“Guys! Next week is first time MacFarlane Day at Gamestop!” MacFarlane Tweets. “Stay tuned for some amazing deals and special pre-order launches!”
Judging by McFarlane’s phrases, McFarlane Day includes his toy figure empire, some o toys and action figures from McFarlane Toys. But we can’t rule out some comics – and/or spawn – components, given GameStop carried comics in almost all of its North American locations for a few years – even some Marvel and DC Comics that don’t. The games were exclusive to the store chain.
And it’s curious that MacFarlane chose to wear a poison hat for this video — could it just be coincidence, or could it be hinting at something related to the Marvel character he co-created?
On the comics horizon, MacFarlane has both Gunslinger Spawn #1 and King Spawn #3 comic books coming out October 20 – in addition to the hit’s second printing. King Spawn #1.
If you follow MacFarlane on social media, you’ll remember that any day that starts with an ‘S’ is (like Saturday or Sunday).sexy spawn day.’ This is where he shares new art or information on projects related to the spawn.
Sexy or not, MacFarlane Day is happening sometime this week—which could end on a Saturday or Sunday. McFarlane is attending the DC fandom on Saturday, October 16th, also nothing, almost certainly, about his partnership with DC for action figures, which are done at Gamestop.
An exclusive retail event can’t be ruled out with the October 16th DC fandom with new launches.
Todd MacFarlane’s spawn ranks high on our list Greatest Non-DC/Marvel Superheroes in comic books.
