McFarlane Open To More Spidey Work?

SPM004“Again, everything’s possible…”

Legendary comic artist Todd McFarlane recently spoke with about the possibility of doing more work with Spidey in the future: Speaking of Spider-Man, are there any circumstances under which you would ever draw Spider-Man for Marvel again?

Todd McFarlane: Let’s change a word or two in your question. To the wording of your question, the answer is no. Change a couple of words and say, “Are there any circumstances that I would draw Spider-Man ‘with’ not ‘for’ but ‘with’ Marvel?” Again, everything’s possible. And basically I’m saying , “Is it possible that someday I’ll wake up and have an itch to do a Spawn and Spider-Man crossover?” Yeah. Would Marvel be interested? I don’t know. I’d have to present it to them at that point. Maybe under a circumstance like that I could sort of have my cake and eat it too.

But will I go and draw a book solely for Marvel comic books on a full-time basis? No. Will I do it for DC? No. It’s not what I do. I’ve got lots of things that [I’m doing]. Like I said, I’m trying to figure out time to finish up that movie. So I’ve got lots of things to fill up whatever idle time I may have not doing comic books. And then like I said, I like to do coaching. I’ve got a family, and I’ve got the toy business. I’m quite busy, you know. And I told people that working for Marvel and DC both of them I had a good time with there. I met good people that work for the company and met lots of good friends at conventions and stuff. But I sort of put it in the same bucket as high school in that I enjoyed my time at high school, liked it, liked my friends there, but do I have any intention of ever going back to high school? No. Doesn’t mean that I hated high school. Doesn’t mean that I have a grudge against high school. It just means high school is in my past. Marvel comic books and DC comic books are in my past. It doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy my time while I was there.

So, in other words, “kinda sorta maybe, probably not, but maybe yes, maybe no, but definitely not positively no.”

    Steve Wacker would have been the perfect guy to make this happen. With him gone, I'm not sure new incoming Spidey editor, Nick Lowe could do it. But would love to see Todd on some covers, or an OGN or even a mini series.
