We here at Nerdist are not shy about our love of creative toy and comics genius, Todd McFarlane. His construction sets for Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead are on-point, we’re beyond excited about the prospect of a Spawn movie and/or TV series, and Image Comics consistently publishes some of the best books out there. Naturally, we were thrilled to have a chance for our very own Dan Casey to sit down with McFarlane at New York Comic Con for a nice li’l chat about all of those things and more. (Like the potential of some paint-it-yourself construction sets, which: !!!!)
The whole interview is worth watching, but our favorite bit was his comparison of his construction sets to, erm, other similar projects out there: “I’m sort of the anti-Hefner; I cover the nipples,” he said. But that’s just one part of the 15-minute conversation. So what are you waiting for?! Hit play and watch the dang thing already.
What’s your favorite thing that Todd McFarlane’s ever done? Hit us up with your thoughts in the comments (and make sure to keep the NYCC conversation going by tagging all your Twitter and Instagram posts with #NerdistNYCC and #NYCC)!
