That Sweatshop Double Page From Angela #1

IMG_0071

So I was rereading Spawn #9 and Angela #1 at the weekend. You know, for fairly obvious reasons. Currently a 9.6 CGC Spawn #9 sells for a hundred dollars, when a month ago a 9.8 only sold for $35. Indeed, a standard unslabbed issue sells for up to $30 now.

But rereading Angela, I came across something I hadn’t thought about for almost twenty years. A tour around the production of Todd McFarlane’s Spawn toys which looked, well, pretty much like a sweatshop.

There was quite a bit of commentary online back then, but this was before there was much of a web to speak of. These days there would be Tumblr parodies in seconds…
