In the final Image founders-centric edition of Off Panel, Image Comics co-founder Todd McFarlane joins the show to share his perspective on the story of Image. McFarlane talks the appeal of the move away from Marvel, the story behind Image’s creation, the meeting at Marvel and why they went to DC after it, why he stayed exclusive to Image, how the Image deal became more appealing to others, Robert Kirkman’s fit as a partner, Eric Stephenson’s impact, whether Image looks as he expected after 25 years, what the biggest difficulties were in figuring everything out, and more.
