If you were a fan of comics in the mid-90s, chances are that at one point or another, you happened upon an issue of Todd McFarlane’s Spawn.
Back then, he was everywhere and seemed to be what all indie comics aspired to be.
Fast forward 15-odd years, and the character has definitely fallen off the pop culture radar. Yet somehow, Image is celebrating his 200th issue with the promise of a ‘new direction’, both in story and character developments.
Only time will tell what Spawn’s legacy will be in the comics world.
Today’s page was done by Hawk, a man whom I love, and a man who never lets me down:
Hawk, more formally known as Mohammad F. Haque (read: it’s on his business card), leads a double life: innovative artist/illustrator by day, lightning-fingered techie by night. He currently juggles several projects and job titles, including concept designer/illustrator for Quantum Mechanix based in Los Angeles, graphic artist/developer for Protein Media Inc. based in Washington DC and co-creator/artist of the webcomic “Applegeeks”. At Quantum Mechanix, he plays with dolls…err, designs officially licensed maquettes for Serenity/”Firefly”, “Dr. Who” and Star Trek. When Hawk isn’t designing or drawing, he captures the world through the lens of his Nikon D90 or experiments with new techniques and art forms in his batcave (read: basement). He hails from the Maryland/DC area and scored a degree in Graphic Design and Art from the University of Maryland.
That’s it for 2010, folks, but we will see you on the flip side on Monday.
Happy New Year, from all of us to you.
