As if he knows that I’m leaving for parts unknown (Oh, okay; Europe) tomorrow, Mark Millar offers up something that’ll get his fans excited and his haters agitated:
Civil War was Marvel’s biggest selling series since the early 90s. So how do we follow that? What character or group or regular book do you feel we’re doing now for next April? I don’t think it’ll be named for another month or two yet, but curious as to what you think we’d work well on.
I’ll tell you this much… I’m having a great time. I stopped writing War Heroes at number 3 and FF at our tenth issue as I’m so far ahead. Started the [Steve McNiven] project a couple of months back and just finishing issue seven now. I’ll have the first big arc (eight issues) done by the time the thing’s announced and then I can jump back onto Kick-Ass. I’ve never been this far ahead before (using my time out wisely towards the end), but it’s a bloody great feeling. The book’s worked out really well too. Steve is itching to get started.
It involves a symbiote at one stage in the story, the death of the greatest Marvel hero, a new President, a blind superhero driving a car 3000 miles and The Hulk as you’ve never seen them (yes them) before. It’s a lot of fun and I have a feeling this is going to be MASSIVE.
Start saving now.
Retailers, you can build that extension you’ve been thinking about. As of January I’m back, my friends!!!
