When I was working on Sandman , I felt a lot of the time that I was actually picking up a machete and heading out into the jungle. I got to write in places and do things that nobody had ever done before. When I'm writing novels I'm painfully aware that I'm working in a medium that people have been writing absolutely jaw-droppingly brilliant things for, you know, three-four thousand years now. You know, you can go back.

We have things like The Golden Ass. And you go, well, I don't know that I'm as good as that and that's two and a half thousand years old.

In , Gaiman was contracted by Todd McFarlane to write a single issue of Spawn , a popular title at the newly created Image Comics company. In issue No. Prior to this issue, Spawn was an assassin who worked for the government and came back as a reluctant agent of Hell but had no direction.
In Angela, a cruel and malicious angel, Gaiman introduced a character who threatened Spawn's existence, as well as providing a moral opposite. Cogliostro was introduced as a mentor character for exposition and instruction, providing guidance. Medieval Spawn introduced a history and precedent that not all Spawns were self-serving or evil, giving additional character development to Malebolgia , the demon that creates Hellspawn. As intended,  all three characters were used repeatedly throughout the next decade by Todd McFarlane within the wider Spawn universe. In papers filed by Gaiman in early , however, he claimed that the characters were jointly owned by their scripter himself and artist McFarlane , not merely by McFarlane in his role as the creator of the series.
McFarlane initially agreed that Gaiman had not signed away any rights to the characters, and negotiated with Gaiman to effectively 'swap' McFarlane's interest in the character Marvelman  McFarlane believes he purchased interest in the character when Eclipse Comics was liquidated; Gaiman is interested in being able to continue his aborted run of that title but later claimed that Gaiman's work had been work-for-hire and that McFarlane owned all of Gaiman's creations entirely.
The presiding judge, however, ruled against their agreement being work for hire, based in large part on the legal requirement that "copyright assignments must be in writing. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the district court ruling in February  granting joint ownership of the characters to Gaiman and McFarlane.
