Image Comics celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2017, and Rolled Spine Podcasts will applaud (and chide) the company with a new show looking at its longest running title! The Spawnometer is an issue by issue indexing podcast devoted to Todd McFarlane's Spawn franchise. The title references the iconic visual device representing the meter that gauged Spawn's necroplamic power reserves, which counted down each time he used his supernatural abilities until he ran out of time in his cursed second life. To represent this conceit, our episodes will cover each issue of the comic book series at a length of no more than one minute per page. We'll also be looking at Spawn's various spin-off and media adaptations, as well as covering other early Image Comics super-hero series as brief back-up features.
