SYFY has released the official trailer for its first original documentary Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t, which will be making its world premiere as the opening film for SYFY Fan Fast. It also happens to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con’s first-ever Virtual @Home edition, which will be starting later this week.
Directed by David Oster, Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t follows the titular rebel who, at the beginning of his career, was turned away by numerous comic publications. He decided that since no one was recognizing his talent, he would take matters in his own hands. McFarlane eventually became the CEO of McFarlane Toys and President of Image Comics and Legendary Artist.

It paints a portrait of his struggles to navigate and upend the status quo in the comic and toy industries.
