Description

Todd McFarlane Batman #423 Cover Original Art (DC, 1988). Todd McFarlane's only cover for this series came in 1988, the year when he was busy setting Marvel on its ear with his stint on Amazing Spider-Man. Not much DC art by McFarlane exists, and much of that is from the early years as he was still developing his signature style on features like Infinity Inc. Here's a chance to own his striking rendition of DC's number one character. The art has an image area of 10" x 15". Excellent condition. Signed by the artist at the bottom. The "McFarlane" signature in the form of a Batman logo is glued onto a separate piece of paper that in turn was glued onto the art. Included with this lot are additional stats with the Comics Code logo and a $1 price, presumably for Canadian editions. From the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.

McFarlane, Todd:Todd McFarlane (Canadian, b. 1961): is a multi-talented cartoonist, writer, toy designer and entrepreneur, most celebrated for his work on Marvel’s Incredible Hulk, and Spider-Man, as well as on his own character, Spawn. In the early nineties, McFarlane became the first of a new breed of independent comic book superstars, thanks to the p[opularity of his work on Marvel’s titles. In 1992, he and several of the new wave of comics creators formed Image Comics. McFarlane based his hugely successful, occult, anti-hero Spawn on a character from his high school portfolio and updated the concept for the nineties. In recent years, McFarlane has focused most of his time on his entrepreneurial efforts, McFarlane Toys and Todd McFarlane Entertainment, a film and animation studio .
