A recent posting at Larry Marder’s blog confirms what we’d been hearing on the grapevine: the forner Executive Director of Image and McFarlane Toys long time President has left the Mcfarlane fold:

I’m no longer in the Todd McFarlane business. I wish Mr. McFarlane well in all his future endeavors. For the first time in over 15 years, I’m back in the Larry Marder business…and it sure feels good! I can’t wait to see everyone this weekend at SPX and discuss with my friends, colleagues, and fans the future of the Beanworld!

We wish him luck in all future endeavors…especially if that means MORE BEANWORLD.


  1. It was fun, but I never got Beanworld.

    Marder did create one badgirl-esque backup comic in the 90’s that I would like to see revived (forget the name), it was lots o’fun!
