Image of the Day: Todd McFarlane reveals the Spawn/Batman crossover you've never seen

Legendary Image Comics founder and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Batman artist extraordinaire Greg Capullo, have worked together for a long time. And at one point, they almost did a Spawn/Batman crossover together.

Below is one such piece drawn by Greg and inked by myself.
