Are You An Brilliant Artist? Mark Millar Wants You

Mark Millar writes;

You’d be out in the same year as Quitely, Romita, McNiven and another major artist we can’t reveal yet (he’s still under contract). In other words, you’d better be bloody good. Upfront, you’d get more than Marvel or DC pay for work-for-hire and you get half the movie rights too. HUGELY commercial project coming in the second half of 2013. Either post below or contact a Millarworld mod if you would like to work on my next release after Jupiter’s Legacy.

Note: This isn’t a competition or a hunt for a new artist. You’d be earning more than all bar a handful of other artists in the industry if you work on this gig so I’d imagine it would need to be someone who has put in the hours and already established. It’s going to be a very high-profile assignment. Like I said, I’m looking for someone who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Quitely and Romita and the other dudes on these books. It’s very, very heady company as far as the art goes.

Stylistically, I’m open, but someone with a slightly urban style would be good and a very fluid penciling style. Something with a lot of energy. However, I need to look at it to judge and something might surprise me. I look forward to working with somebody awesome.

Already the likes of Jamal Igle and Bosch Fawstin have thrown down on the Millarworld message boards, but I suspect most interested people will contacted Mark privately, or through the likes of Harris Miller III.

Millar has also been sending out previews of Jupiter’s Legacy to friends;

Thanks to all the guys for the kind words I woke up to this morning. Frank Q and I are going to share a lot of this with you all early February. Stay tuned.

But some lovely comments this morning. Russell T Davies wrote me literally the nicest letter I think I’ve ever had. Quite buzzed up to be back on #6 today.

There’s still no news of the postponed-from-September Nemesis 2, though the Marvel April solicitations are due out shortly. But concern that Mark Millar’s CLiNT would run out of Mark Millar material before Nemesis 2 and Jupiter’s Legacy came along may be assuaged by… CLiNT being rather late instead.

The December issue, featuring Hit Girl and Secret Service may not be out until the end of the January. Even while publisher Titan has been advertising subscriptions rather heavily…
