"Image Comics?!? What the hell is 'Image Comics'?!?"
|Monkey Napoleon |
I personally am not a huge fan of his comics, but I'll never understand the vitriol that gets directed at him.
He blindly stumbled into being founding father of modern comics, and if you're into comics (which I'm not sure why you'd hate him so much if you weren't) then you'll know that the average shitty bargain rack title is 100x better than the average big name title was back then.
What the hell was up with that second paragraph?
1. 'He blindly stumbled' should be 'He conscientiously ripped off the designs of half-a-dozen other characters, then ham-fistedly threw the grit of Frank Miller and the mysticism of Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman into a blender to see what would happen'.
2. 'Founding father of modern comics' should refer to the three writers listed above.
3. Average shitty bargain rack title > average big name title--How does this defend McFarlane, who had a movie, a toy line, a cartoon show, and multiple video games based off of his property?
I'll say i like some of the figures he produces, that's about it.
This was actually pretty interesting. It seems McFarlane is more entertaining when he's his geeky self then when he's trying to be the douche crypt keeper at the start of each episode of the spawn cartoon.
Massive Ego, but before the coke addiction.
Wow, that was like they merged Dale and Boomhauer into one character and told him to just talk about whatever he liked for ten minutes
I remember once being proud that I had Spawn #1-50. What a fool I was.
I used to buy the comic too, but i was 13 years old.
This guy should be a televangelist.
Thanks for reminding me why no one still cares about Spawn.
I know this kind of talk dates me, but I remember how fun it was to add your commentary track over the narrator in the Spawn cartoon.
NARRATOR: What does the Hellspawn want? What could he possibly need?
Nikon: (creepy voice) Perhaps all the Hellspawn wants is a decent egg salad sandwich.
Co-Riffer: (creepy voice) with extra mayo.
