The ART OF TODD McFARLANE: DEVIL'S IN THE DETAIL
SC 400pp Color Black + White
A personality and talent as large as Todd's was always going to require a big book and WHAM here it is.
Todd's detailed and dynamic art struck a chord with comic book fans from the get go, he enjoyed great success at both DC and then Marvel before breaking with the majors to make a stand for creator rights by co founding Image Comics and creating Spawn.
From Image he expanded beyond comics, into animation, films, music videos, games and collectibles and what ever one may think of the results his passion and commitment can't be denied.
Todd's not the shy or retiring type but it's worth reading his comments about his approach to work and his craft as well as enjoying the eye candy in this book, beacuse his succes wasn't preordained.
Todd has worked hard for his success, he respacts and appreciates his fans and his colleagues, so here's to Todd a genuine game changer.
OK on Friday March 22 Pulp's Comics, courtesy of Urban Comics, will be hosting the amazing talents of Fiona Staples, Pia Guera and Brian K Vaughn, the creators behind the fantasy "Saga" and the speculative story "Y The last Man".
