Gaiman and MacFarlane are now officially co-copyright holders in some of the Spawn characters. Gaiman also clarifies that MacFarlane probably does not hold any interests in the Miracleman/Marvelman character.

That’ll teach him. Way to make Todd your ***** Neil.
This is really ironic considering one of the first Spawn issues (#8, I think) that Todd did hand-to-hand with Dave Sims, which was a metaphore regarding comic characters copyright issues…
That comic hasn’t been rereleased in trade paperbacks later (at least here in Spain)
