With the news came our first look at Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won't, which you can check out below:

"Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won't" spotlights the life and career of industry rebel Todd McFarlane, CEO of McFarlane Toys, President of Image Comics and Legendary Artist (Spawn, Venom). From record-breaking artist to adult collectible tycoon, the documentary provides an exclusive in-depth view behind the creative mastermind of Spawn and some of Marvel Comic's most well-known artwork — and illustrates McFarlane's struggles to navigate and upend the status quo in the comic and toy industries.
