Okay, this is exciting. I’ve been planning it for months and securing one of the greatest modern artists working in comics. Jupiter’s Legacy launches in April and Kick-Ass 3 in May, but the next big MW book – one nobody besides me, the artist and the publisher know anything about yet – is coming your way in the Autumn. Who IS this amazing artist? No clues yet. But the first page has just arrived and it’s perfect.
Seriously, this is MOUTH-WATERING.
You guys are going to love it and the title, the cover and a brief synopsis will be revealed in a few weeks time. But Jupiter’s Legacy #1 is out two weeks next Wednesday so I don’t want any promotional distractions from this or May’s Kick-Ass 3 #1. You’ll have seen the Hit-Girl cover from Adam Hughes yesterday, but next week on The Hollywood Reporter the full range of the alternates will be displayed and how they come together into a giant poster. Silvestri, Adam Hughes, Adam Kubert, Pasqual Ferry, Cully Hamner and of course John Romita. Yeah, I’m spoiled.
Then the following week it’s the MASSIVE preview week for JL #1, the signing in New York’s Midtown and all the mainstream promos we’re doing. But as soon as I’m back you’re going to get everything you need to know about this year’s third big Millarworld title. This mysterious new project. Like I said, you guys will love it. It could be the one I’m most excited about.
Let the speculation begin… Milo Manara? Charles Vess? Bilal? JH Williams? Chris Ware? Jill Thompson? Who could it be?
We still haven’t heard anything about Nemesis 2, scheduled initially for September last year, then rescheduled for January and then, simply not mentioned again. We’re also still waiting on War Heroes and American Jesus 2 But could this new title be a handy dandy way to relaunch CLiNT?
Although there may be one actor not appearing in the film of the comic…
Not MY country, son. @schwarzenegger Thatcher was a visionary, a warrior and a leader who left the world better than she found it.
