    There are over 20 Savage Dragon trades in print right now. I don't see any company making available the last 243 issues of any series in print.

    That's not exactly how that works. For trades--I'm not actually cutting anybody a check--Image does that. It's just that the books may be in the red for quite some time. Creators don't cut Image...

    Todd has written a couple hundred comic books at this point--far more than many "professional" writers. You may not care for what he's doing but like it or not--he's a professional.

    Don't hold your breath. The large issue number is not something he's likely to abandon.

    Yeah--but everything comes with a price tag. If I'm getting pages lettered and colored--that money has to come from somewhere. It's not as though the book suddenly generates more money when there's a...

    Short answer: No.

    Longer answer: I want to do the book and having somebody else do it means paying other people money which I can't guarantee the book will earn. If the sales aren't amazing--the...

    Without a creator to contact or any other information to go by--I can't really touch the character. It's not as though he's up for grabs.

    Todd wants to get past that milestone issue, to be sure, but I can't imagine him stopping there. He wants Spawn to outlive him. He wants it to be Batman not Cerebus.

    No. His origin is mentioned in brief (being mauled by a shark at ground zero) but it's never been depicted. Once you have the how--showing it didn't seem necessary.

    We publish book by creators I've never heard of all the time. I don't follow everybody everywhere but a ton of new creators have broken in at Image. It is a harder sell. New talent is by nature an...
