Is Mark Hamill to Write Hit-Girl Comics?

Last year, Bleeding Cool ran the rumour that Mark Hamill of Luke Skywalker fame was to write a Millarworld comic book for Mark Millar. At the time all we were told is that it wouldn’t be a Kingsman comic book — despite the fact that he appeared in the first movie. We thought it would have been announced in the run-up to the release of The Last Jedi, but it was not to be.

However, the rumour is still very much alive.

We’ve now been given the nod that it may be a Hit-Girl comic book, based on the character from the original Kick-Ass comic books and movies. Millar has a new Hit-Girl comic book on the way, Hit-Girl in Colombia with Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, but it seems that this will be the first of a series of adventures for the diminutive Mindy set around the world. Could Mark Hamill take writing duties on one of those adventures?

If it comes to bass, this won’t be Mark Hamill’s first comic book writing experience. He wrote The Black Pearl with Eric Johnson, published in 2001 by Dark Horse Comics, and also for Bart Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror #7 from Bongo Comics.

Let’s see how Hamill’s schedule frees up for the rest of the year — and for the solicit for the second story arc on Hit-Girl… after Colombia. Hit-Girl was not one of the Millarworld books sold to Netflix and so continues to be published by Image Comics with a new series starting next month. Where the Netflix Millarworld comics will be published — that is a different story.
