McFarlane reveals abandoned Spawn/Batman crossover plans

Todd McFarlane has unveiled a glimpse of a planned Spawn/Batman crossover that never saw the light of day. In what the Image Comics co-founder characterizes as "a bit of fate," the project was to have been drawn by current Batman artist, and longtime McFarlane collaborator, Greg Capullo.

"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)," McFarlane writes in a Facebook post accompanying the long-lost cover. "I [was] 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."

DC Comics and Image Comics published a Spawn/Batman one-shot in 1994 written by Frank Miller and drawn by McFarlane, but the artist notes the abandoned collaboration with Capullo came later.
