Todd McFarlane recently took to his Facebook page to reveal art for a Spawn/Batman crossover that never happened.
Greg Capullo was going to be on art chores and even did a promo piece.
Check out the details:
Just like BIGFOOT...here's that mysterious comic book creature, the¬†Spawn¬†-¬†Batman¬†crossover that NO ONE has EVER SEEN!!!!!
Years ago there was a deal for DC Comics and myself to do a cool Batman/Spawn cross-over book (for those not hip to comic lingo, that's a book in which both characters are in the same issue). I to to have written and inked it, while a talented penciller,¬†Greg Capullo, was going to draw it. for a variety of reasons (mostly on my shoulders) the book never got off the ground, but a few pages and promo pieces were done for it. Below is one such piece drawn by Greg and inked by myself.
*** This story is different than an earlier version of Spawn/Batman that Frank Miller wrote and I drew. ***
And in a bit of fate: Years later, Mr. Capullo would take over the artistic drawing reins for the caped crusader and he would be the next hot shot artist on¬†DC Comics' BATMAN comic! Which is usually at the top of the best selling comics each month (ably written by Scott Snyder).
Anyway, I came across this cool cover the other day and thought that it was too good not to share.
