... just the cover LMFAO
The story's that bad?
Actually I dunno what G Man is talking about. Spawn had one of the better stories of those times. While other superheroes were out saving the day, getting the girl, defeating mysterious bank robbers - Spawn was in a dirty back alley, hating himself, hating his best friend for marrying his wife and ripping criminals like the child rapist Billy Kincaid to shreds instead of turning them in to the cops. Spawn had a pretty grim and realistic storyline for the late 90's.
@Webjaker: That was actually a banner we had made for a convention a couple years back. As for merch, it's a matter of whether or not people will actually buy. In the past we've had people say "yes, I'd buy ___" and then it just didn't happen. I believe Ryan from Giant Bomb is overseeing the merch dept right now. You can let him know on twitter that you're interested. https://twitter.com/taswell
I've been giving out stickers and buttons at conventions when people come up to me (and if I'm not in the middle of an interview).
Seemed pretty short but it was pretty fun. I knew exactly what G-Man was going to show when he started talking about number 2 as that's the scene I saw when scanning that book. Then, I put it back on the shelf. I also only bought last week's issue of Spawn because it was a homage cover like the last two.
@G-Man: Oh wow I could have sworn that is one of the old comics. I was thinking, why did G Man specifically buy an old issue like that. I remember a very similar cover from before issue 100 - I haven't read Spawn recently but from stuff I read about Omega Spawn and whatnot I did think it sounded really hokey. To clarify I was speaking about the old Spawn and was under the impression you were too, my mistake!
I'm gonna go grab Deadpool Kills Marvel Universe this week :'D I'm so excited for this new series!! After hearing the reviews and samples from the new 52 I have had a hard time buying anything DC. I really want the new Watchmen, but only because Lee Bermejo is such an amazing artist and I have to admire the art. The premise of making more Watchmen does tick me off, but well, I haven't checked it out and I'm not big on integrity when it comes to enjoying media.
