Todd McFarlane's live-action "Spawn" movie isn't the only project he wants in front of Hollywood execs right now. According to his recent tweeting, the Image Comics co-founder has big plans for his animated "Spawn" show.
The rest of the comics Twitterverse seemed to have have birthdays on their collective minds this morning, with an outpouring of remembrances showing up in honor of the late, legendary Jack Kirby, who would make for a great interview right now—were that he were still alive—about his reinvented comic "The Losers." Star of the "Losers" film Idris Alba also shows up in the report today.
