NYCC: Image United! Larsen Joins McFarlane On

What, did you really think this would be about “Image United?”

Just over two hours ago CBR EXCLUSIVELY ANNOUNCED that Image co-founders Todd McFarlane and Eric Larsen were taking time out of their busy schedules of not finishing Image United as Larsen joins the Spawn creative team with issue #258.

There are quite a few questions we all have about this announcement, not the least of which is "Spawn is still being published?" and "this was worth an EXCLUSIVE?" and in order to get to the bottom of these – and other – pressing questions we here at The Outhouse – your one stop shop for all things tagged as "NYCC" – will copy and paste parts of their CBR's interview with the two Image co-founders:

It's going to be sort of a tag team," McFarlane told CBR News. "We're going to co-plot, we're going to co-write. He's going to do the early, rough laydowns on it, I'm going to do a little bit of inking, he's going to do a little bit of inking, I'm going to do some penciling on top of his inking, and we're just going to do this hodgepodge that, at the end, you're going to go, 'Who wrote that?' 'I don't know, do you remember, Erik?'

Hold up...isn't that the same set up Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards had in Chasing Amy?

Larsen for his part will be on board for "at least five issues" beginning with "#258 -- what McFarlane calls a "essentially a silent issue" and the prelude to the previously announced four-part "Satan Saga Wars," which starts with #259."

More from McFarlane:

He said, 'Hey, if you don't mind, let me throw some stories at you, for writing,'" McFarlane shared. "He actually surprised me with some of the stuff he was coming up with -- very thoughtful stuff. And then, 'If you can't find an artist, I'll do artwork.' I'm like, 'What? You've got your own book.' 'No, I can do it.' He sent in some of the early pages, and I was just blown away by them.

Ok, now this is just getting a bit creepy. The way this process is being described it's a cross between Tomax / Xamot and Ross / Rachel.

I'm not reading the rest of that interview....oh, now I can't get the image of Todd sitting at Erik's drawing board with the same look Lucy van Pelt gives Schroeder as he plays piano...

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
