Yesterday a federal judge in Wisconsin ruled in favor of popular horror novelist and comic book writer Neil Gaiman (“AMERICAN GODS”, “NEVERWHERE”) regarding his rights to several key characters in the “SPAWN” mythos that he worked on all the way back in 1992. The dispute over the characters has been a long running one, but as of yesterday it would seem that justice has been served. Get all the details courtesy of Variety beyond the break.

Sam and Twitch, best known as the bumbling and genius arms of the law in Todd McFarlane’s “SPAWN” universe, have always been one of the most entertaining aspects of the series, offering enough comedic intervention to lighten even the most dark of tales. Now thankfully Image has decided to give the duo yet another mini-series, and this time it’s a bi-weekly! Read on for the skinny!
One of the best things to ever happen to the “SPAWN” franchise was the birth of a new Spawn in character Jim Downing. It was one of those choices that was almost crucial to breath life into the stale series, and now that it has happened the series feels better than ever. And this February the McFarlane team look to continue evolving the series as the present new mythology into the Spawn, something that they promise will change the series completely.
“He has miraculously awoken from a coma, dodged being burned alive in a hospital fire, and fought his way to find answers about his past. Now, our new Spawn, Jim Downing, learns a crucial piece of information that changes the game completely.”
