I see creator-owned being my main home for this decade. Marvel was my noughties home, but Millarworld is my teenies home. But I never sit still and enjoy new challenges. I’ve been asked to join the board of a company you all know and you’ll hear about this probably around July. This will surprise you as much as it did me, but something I’m very excited about. I’m also branching out into other mediums a little, but comics always ALWAYS my main love. This is what I’ve wanted to do since I was five. I get offered stuff every day and turn down almost everything. Comics was and is my dream job. I’m not going anywhere.
That said, he still spent time during his “Millar Hour” Q&A at Millarworld talking about the movies of his projects (Expect Kick-Ass 2 director announcement news soon, apparently) and explaining that television just isn’t filmic enough for him… No groundbreaking revelations – That’s what other websites are for – but there was this eye-opening boast:
A good idea can go a long way though and it’s much easier than in the past where creator-owned books were competing for space in Wizard and so on. But the internet is massive and free. Our Supercrooks viral campaign went wider than DC’s New 52 campaign and cost us only the beer we paid we Spaniards.
I’m not joking here: What was the Supercrooks viral campaign? Was that the short video that did the rounds for a week or so last month? Is this classic Millar hyperbole, or was I just asleep as it went wider than a multimedia push that lasted three months and got everywhere?
