To be honest, I gave up on Spawn sometime around issue #21. Even then, I wasn't particularly into Spawn. It was the type of hero that I really didn't care for. I was also drawn into the full potential of comics being introduced to alternative and independent comics. However, when there's a big book hyped by its publisher, I feel the need to review it.
Spawn has a tendency to not make a lot of news, anymore. This weekend, that all changed. It was announced that not only would creator Todd McFarlane return to draw the character for his 300th issue, but Greg Capullo would return to draw the character as well. Capullo rocketed to stardom with his work on Spawn, after getting noticed by McFarlane for his work on X-Force. McFarlane's last time drawing his creation was in Spawn #200.
There was a lot of talk about the new Batman after Scott Snyder apparently killed both him and the Joker in the previous issue. I was not going to give it a second look, but I've heard good things, so I thought about it and decided to give the latest issue with the "Bat-Bunny" armor a shot. To be completely honest, I wasn't expecting to like it. Batman isn't the type of character that I like, and lately, in the wake of the Christopher Nolan movies, every time I give Batman a shot, it's just too dark.
