Spawn Creator Todd McFarlane Speaks To Neil Gaiman & Angela’s Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy & Marvel Now “Visit”
by John Babos on March 26, 2013

Newsarama got a hold of Spawn Creator Todd McFarlane who commented on the news that Angela, Spawn’s Earth Angel, is set to appear in Marvel Now Comics this year.

    “Neil Gaiman and I had a resolution in our legal dispute, and as part of that he ended up with the rights of Angela. Whatever Neil chooses to do with something that he owns is at his complete and utter discretion.”

    “The health of the industry is based upon having good stories and good characters, and a wide customer base. If bringing some of these characters back to the fold in a meaningful way adds to that, then it just strengthens our industry.”

    “Good stories that entertain are something that we all should applaud on any level. Whether we’re doing it directly at Image Comics, or at our competition, it helps keep our industry that we love alive. I will sit back and be as interested as anyone else.”

Angela was co-created by Todd McFarlane and Neil Gaiman in 1992’s Spawn #9 under Image Comics. However those ownership rights were in dispute and the subject of protracted legal dispute that was resolved in 2012. Medieval Spawn and Cogliostro also debuted in Spawn #9, but their ownership has not been confirmed.

Angela is set next to appear this summer Marvel Comics’ Age of Ultron #10 and Guardians of the Galaxy #5 with Neil Gaiman co-writing the latter with Brian Michael Bendis. Writer Neil Gaiman will also be returning to DC Comics’ Vertigo Imprint’s with a Sandman a prequel series later this year.
