Batman/Spawn Release This December
Batman/Spawn announced by DC during San Diego Comic-Con 2022. “Look, it’s so simple. I get to play with one of the greatest comic characters ever (Batman), get to reunite with the amazing artist Greg Capullo, AND I get to hang out in creation. I myself (Spawn) into the storyline,” McFarlane said previously on Batman/Spawn. “This is the kind of project that many of us creators in the comics industry can only be a part of a few times in our careers.”
McFarlane further added, “My goals with this book are twofold; First to just make it as enjoyable as possible to read both visually and story-wise. Then second, I hope this book will continue to add to some of the many reasons why we actually collect superhero comic books. That’s to release the book ‘Events’ that people will remember for years to come. This should make for a nice holiday gift!”
Synopsis for Batman/Spawn reads, “Two dark heroes, cursed by tragedy, find their paths crossed again…but not by choice! What evil foe is at work, pitting the Dark Knights against Hellspawn? From the shadows of Gotham City to New York City, this epic show is the blockbuster you’ve been waiting for almost two decades!” DC has also previously stated that Court of the Owls will play a major role in the crossover, a group of notorious criminals based in Gotham will try to use Spawn to defeat Batman once and for all.
Batman/Spawn #1 features cover art and variant cover art by Greg Capullo and additional cover art by McFarlane, Jason Fabok, Gabriele Dell’Otto, Sean Murphy, Francesco Mattina, J. Scott Campbell, Jim Lee and Brett Booth. One-shot releases December 13th from DC.
