    I remember liking their first meeting (two books - one DC and one Image - if I'm not mistaken). Sure, I'll probably pick it up.

    I liked it alright...ten years ago or so when McFarlane was actually involved with it.

    I never got into Spawn...which was weird because I was ALL OVER Mcfarlane's Amazing Spiderman artistic run. But since batman is in this I *might* get it.

    Best scene in the DC version was a closeup shot of Spawn's ugly mug with a Batarang sticking out of it.

    Quote from the article:

    "Besides Spawn, Batman is easily the most interesting comic book character that I've ever been involved with in the past," says Spawn creator and McFarlane Toys founder Todd McFarlane.

    Umm, I actually think Spawn is pretty cool, but that is one SERIOUSLY ego-inflated comment.

    I don't remember which of the original two I read, but it confused the @#$% out of me, so I won't be touching this.

    One had Batman and Spawn teaming up to fight a demon of some sort, written by Moench, Dixon, and Grant; art by Klaus Janson.

    The other was written by Miller and had art by McFarlane, which is the first time you see The Goddamn Ass-Bats used in DK2 and ALL-STAR. Here The Goddamn Ass-Bats calls Spawn a twit and a punk every other panel, they fight cyborgs with the heads of homeless bums, and some arms dealer, I think. And Spawn gets a Batarang in the face.

    Strangely enough, I didn't like the latter book when it first came out, but reading it again after reading DK2 and ALL-STAR I actually found SPAWN/BATMAN to be funny.

    I dunno. If I created a successful comic book character, it would probably be the most interesting one to me too.

    Ya, interesting is an opinion, so obviously when someone creates a character it is the most interesting to them, becasue they gave it all the traits they find interesting.

    That's the one I read. Didn't understand it at all.



    That's not 100% true. I'm a writer, created plenty of characters and think many of them are interesting, but I wouldn't consider any of them the most interesting.

    Speaking of Mcfarlane, did anyone read the the new issue of Cable and Deadpool? When Deadpool is slashing away at Apocalypse's minions he replies that "they're like living, breathing, walking Mcfarlane toys!":lol

    All right, maybe you don't, but that just means that you don't have as much confidence in your writing ability, or are incredibly modest. He should be allowed to beleive that Spawn is most interesting if he wants. Personally I prefer Wolverine and most members of The Ultimates, but that's personal preference. Just because he created it doesn't make his prefereance arrogant.

    The boycott revolved around his attempts to use Miracleman in Image comics, even though Neil Gaiman owned the majority of the intellectual property revolving around Marvelman, Miracleman, etc. McFarlane purchased the trademark IIRC, which he thought would be enough.

    However, I believe it is enough to still keep Gaiman from releasing Miracleman backissues, and any new projects he had planned.

    McFarlane is an ass.
