Even without reading comics growing up, my friends and I always knew about Spawn. Or at least that he existed. Not that we really knew anything about him. But come on, look at the guy! How can he not be cool?

Listen in as author and comic writer BJ Mendelson comes to talk not only Spawn as a character but also the fascinating real life origin story of the comic and how this is possibly the most 90s thing that ever 90s-ed.

Learn such things as:

  • The fascinating real life origin of Spawn (did I say that up there? Who cares, it’s worth it)
  • What aspect of this game actually makes more sense in the game than in the comic?
  • How much of a hand do we think Todd McFarlene had with this one?
  • And much more!
