Nonetheless I'm here for the art and that's badass. So I want more Batman/Spawn in some fashion. Honestly I kinda started thinking the one-shot was done for the express purpose of making toys - it certainly wasn't done because he had a great story in mind.
Yeah, Todd should probably just stick to drawing. Some of his 90's "Spider-Man" stuff wasn't terrible (for the time), but none of those issues were going to win any Eisners for their writing.
That said, the art on the new Batman/Spawn was pretty good, and that's what the figures will be based on, so the story doesn't really matter. I didn't read it, and don't plan to, but I may pick up the figures. Although, after the the blue Hush figure comes out I may not need anymore comic Batman figures, and I don't really care for Spawn as a character, so I may not pick them up after all.
