30-03-23 | DC Comics and Image Comics team up for an exciting 280 page hardcover! Batman / Spawn collects the three team-ups between the Dark Knight and the King of the Dead. It features stunning artwork by the iconic Todd McFarlane, not to mention equally legendary writing from figures such as Frank Miller.
Batman / Spawn features three classic tales. In the imaginatively titled Spawn / Batman (1994) the Dark Knight travels to New York City to track down killer robots. Together with Spawn he finds that someone is harvesting the heads of the homeless, in order to obtain their brains for use inside the mechanical men. War Devil (also 1994) brings satanic rituals to Gotham city, following which the dead of Gotham depart their graves. Finally there is Batman / Spawn, released in late 2022, in which the Court of Owls pits the two heroes against each other.
Todd McFarlane rose to prominence in the 1980s. His many projects at DC Comics and Marvel, in particular his work on Spider-Man, gave him rockstar status among comic book lovers. The first team-up between Batman and Spawn came a mere two years after Image Comics opened it’s doors. It is a testament to his talent, reaffirmed by this incredible hardcover. Batman / Spawn is the perfect introduction for latecomers to Spawn and an deliciously dark addition to every library of Batman titles. Two gothic tough guys for the price of one!
