I read some of his books, watched a couple of his cartoons and even saw the movie and it still didn't rope me in. I think the guys above him left a longer impression on people than him. For the record, I'm not insinuating that Spawn is not a big deal, he is for Image but outside of that is another matter altogether especially these days.
I don't have a problem with any of that or his position, to tell you the truth. I knew he wasn't going to be #1, I only wanted him to be #1 just to piss people off. I at times found a lot of stuff annoying of characters, like Spawn, being bashed etc simply because of past stories from years back. It wasn't just Spawn, was a buncha other characters that people never read or read years back, having no knowledge of how decent the books did get but of course, why try them?
But whatever. Hellboy's #1. I'm freakin' excited about that. Thank goodness. And Drake is #2! Sheesh! I'd say highly deserving also.
