Todd McFarlane stopped by CBR TV’s fabulous floating tiki lounge to discuss the comics industry in general and DC Comics’ relaunch specifically, analyzing the moves the publisher is making and his thoughts on how DC is rolling out 52 new titles.
He also discusses comics sales, digital distribution and how he looks at the increasing level of piracy and what can be done to combat it. McFarlane also lays out the reasons why digital comics should be cheaper than their printed counterparts due to cutting printing costs, physical shipping and more.
McFarlane’s experience with Robert Kirkman is also discussed, explaining how bringing on “The Walking Dead” creator as an Image partner has reinvigorated the publisher as a whole and McFarlane in specific.
Finally the writer/artist discusses the odd drop in monthly “Spawn” sales once the series’ got back on schedules and offers hints on the future of the series.
