Mark Millar Says He Makes Comic Books First and Foremost

Yesterday, Mark Millar responded to an article on IGN that reiterated a common criticism against the writer: that he makes comics in order to sell moves. Millar had apparently heard this particular argument enough, and responded quite forcefully on his website, Millarworld, with the headline:

The basic charges go like so: Millar makes a comic book and before it’s in stores, or before it’s even written, in some cases, for the sole purpose of selling the feature film rights, and cashing in. People look at the delays on titles like Kick-Ass, Nemesis, War Heroes, Superior… well, basically all of them, and see that the movies are moving forward, and assume that Millar was just in it for the cash cow of Hollywood.
And he’s sick of it.
I’ve been very lucky to have my books picked up as movies as often as they have. Like Stan Lee and Stephen King, I’ve got a very fortunate track record in these things and a particular bunch of story ideas that execs seem to like. I see nothing to be ashamed of in this. In fact, I see it as a massive, massive boon. Creator-owned projects used to be done as side gigs, creators working at Marvel or DC doing projects they often didn’t like to pay the bills while their real labour of love didn’t really bring them in enough cash to live on. The Hollywood options and adaptations have meant that, like a couple of friends before me, I’ve been able to strike out on my own and afford to do my own thing. As a comic book creator that’s everything I’ve ever wanted. Jack Kirby, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster would have KILLED for the opportunities we have right now, where a creator-owned book like Kick-Ass can outsell established characters and the writer and artist get to keep all the rights and all the money. This is a GOOD thing.
and more.
But the most offensive thing to me, as a comic creator, is my medium being regarded as a stepping stone or being accused of treating it as such. If I wanted to work full time as a script-writer in Hollywood I would( and I’d get to keep all of the money instead of splitting it down the middle with an artist every time I sold an idea). But I love working with the best artists in the industry and I choose to work in comics because I think it’s the greatest medium in the world. The idiocy of people saying I just write comics to sell as a movie later is nonsensical. Tell me one commercial comic-book that WOULDN’T make a good movie? It’s ridiculous and anyone who thinks I’m pimping my wares to the studios over the heads of the readers obviously didn’t see Kick-Ass, a movie where the titular hero is masturbating in the opening sequence and a ten year old drops the c-bomb before she cuts the head of a drug-dealer. If Johnny and I had created a comic we wanted to simply sell as a movie do you think we’d have done something so unusual that Vaughn had to raise $28 million from friends to make? the studios HATED this when we initially showed it to them.
And finally.
Why do these guys never say Marvel and DC are chasing the Hollywood dollar when they sell an adaptation? I honestly think that pieces like this are a subconscious way of keeping creators down. It’s not in the interests of the big companies for creators to get powerful… but it’s in the interests of the writers and artists and we should employ every strategy we can in a carnivorous market. Dissing creators for utilising something that’s very cool and our predecessors only DREAMED of is mean-spirited and makes no creative sense. If a studio offers to buy one of our ideas, as has happened with my last six projects, it means my artists can afford to eat while they wait for the money to come in from the comic (which arrives 4 months after publication). I’ve got enough clout now to make sure that the screenplay doesn’t start until I’ve at least written the scripts for the book itself. The movies are thus not only tremendous fun, but they’re the greatest advertising campaign in the world for our comics. I’ve been offered so many scripts since Kick-Ass came out and turned them all down. Why would I want to leave comics?
I’ve got to say, I’ve actually been in his camp for a while. This is how a creator makes a living in today’s comic book market if they’re not getting regular work from Marvel and DC, and they’re very lucky. Who can begrudge them this? The comics get made, for the most part, and at this point, he doesn’t need to do them. They wouldn’t be worth the hassle. If Millar wanted to make movies, that door is wide open. He’s making comics. Slowly perhaps, but like Robert Kirkman, the man has decided to forge his own path, and there’s something to be respected about that. Obviously, it’s something he takes seriously, or he wouldn’t have bothered responding.


  1. #occupystupidity

  2. The Kick-Ass point is a good one. If your goal is to springboard into mainstream film success, on paper, Hit Girl is not the way to go about that.

    • We had movie with cowboy-ninja-vampires action as the main draw this past summer:

      We live in the world of Plants vs Zombies, Cowboys & Aliens and Internet memes. I don’t know about making successful movies, but if you wanted get a movie made between the years 2005-2009, you made a comic targeting hyperactive attention spans of the comic-con crowd.

  3. Im a little disapointed that he made no mention of drastically off track most Millar converted films become. Dont get me wrong, I enjoyed Kick Ass, but Wanted really should have had a completely different title altogether. Not that this is really the platform to discuss this issue, but it is always something on my mind when comic book movies (especially Millar movies) are concerned.

    All in all though, this is a very well written response from a man who knows a thing or two about how to write.

    • Well, we always have the Loom of Fate!!!!!!!!!!

      My brother loved the Wanted movie and couldn’t stop talking about it. So I sent him the comics to read just to see what his reaction would be. He called me a few days later and asked me what he had just watched.

  4. I am so glad people can see that Mark Millar is one of the comic creators out there that loves making comics first.

  5. I got no problems with Millar or his business model. I hope more creators get the same opportunities. I just don’t like what he’s doing anymore. I loved his Ultimate comics work, but lately, I cannot stomach anything he’s doing anymore. The last issue of Kick-Ass did it for me. I can’t wrap my brain around depictions of child murder and teen rape.

    • Gah, what I am implying is that I feel the quality of his work, in my opinion, has diminished since so many of his titles were going the movie route.

    • You cant wrap yourself around it eh? Can you wrap yourself around the fact that we have a children’s school holiday based on “good ole” Christopher Columbus .. who with his own words.. wrote of how the sex slaves that he was bringing back from hispanola were especially popular in the 8-9 year old range. Get real! Thats called rape.. wrap your brain around it. It exists. You dreaming it doesnt does not make it not exist.
      You have a nice day. and read Superior its more up to your speed perhaps.

    • @iroberts007 – let’s tone it down a touch and understand that not everything is for everybody.

    • Just because something exists doesn’t mean I want to entertain myself with it.

    • Fair enough Theoran. I accept that answer. As for Josh tone what down exactly? I just used the same words that Theo was using and added Columbus. Where you upset that i said rape is real (and in other words.. some of us like to be reading comics that are somewhat based on reality).. or did i cross a line by outing Columbus as not a very nice guy? Times change. You know what Ebert said about the first Batman movie by Tim Burton.. “not a film for kids”.. and that movie is tame by comparison to whats on TV nowadays. I just think that Theoran should have know where kickass was going long before now and dropped it before. Im tired of seeing the same comments over and over again. Same criticism is heaped on the “game of thrones” book series. My point is if it happens i want to read about it. In fact i think that sometimes its good to be disgusted enough to remember something, that way we dont forget that these things happen.

    • I think it was more the sarcastic, accusatory…possibly arrogant, ‘semi-attack you retaliated to Theoran with. To be fair to you I think you maybe misunderstood his point. But to be equally fair to everyone else you then employed the same tone to react to Josh. Though again to be fair to you I’m pretty much employing that same tone now. Everybody understand everbody? Cool. Done and done.

    • Ha.. actually bobby.. i think i was unfairly talking to Theo as if he was one of the unusually large amount of haters that trash Millar more than anyone else in the industry. If youre ever on or some of the other superhero sites. Millar gets trashed alot. So i was just taking out my frustration on Theo. Sorry Theo. It wasnt a semi attack.. its called passive aggressive.. Ha….Im good at passive aggressive. What Mr. Millar says in this article is responding to what alot of people say about him. Where it not for the fact that ive met him and he treated me with more respect than anyone else has in the industry i wouldnt even be posting here.
      Geez and come on… Grant Morrison joked about running Mark Millar over with his car if they ever met again. Scot on Scot crime eh? While Mark may not be the best in the industry.. i think hes talented.. and more importantly.. hes a nicer guy than it would seem from his comics.. Ive heard the same thing about George Carlin.. great/crazy/ profane comedy.. but a sweatheart to the man on the street.
      And yes this ifanboy.. where people happen to be more civilized than other sites.. it takes some getting used to.

    • @iroberts007

      I love your passion. I should have really made my first point more clear. I love Mark’s work on the early Ultimate line. Ultimates 1 & 2 are some of my favorite stories. I loved Old Man Logan and most of his run on FF. I loved Wanted until issue 6, then it kinda fell apart for me. But lately, I just can’t get into what he’s working on anymore. It’s not that his skill in comic making has decreased, it’s more that his current projects aren’t my thing. What he’s currently writing isn’t what I am wanting in a book.

      I’m glad we all got this worked out and I kinda agree with you, this could have turned into an all out flame war on many different places. Thank you iFanbase, any thing less would be uncivilized.

    • ya it was my fault realy.. i pretty much new what you meant. I agree Kick ass isnt as good as it once was. However if you havent tried Superior lately….. I just love where hes going with this series. A bit of a twist. It turns out not all monkeys are **** and ******** (spoiler). I like it. Of course to each their own.
      Ya theres good people on this site… Peace out….
      hey… i just thought of something… maybe comics were good for us after all. I once told a chick that i liked (alot) that comics made me a better person… and her response? wanna guess? get ready to laugh and cry.. her response was “they made you a better boy”…ha… ..
      man.. it wasnt funny at the time though…

  6. Right On! Besides all of this stuff. Millar is the type of person that hangs out with fans at cons, and takes time to talk (and respond to fans ideas) during signing sessions even when hes being told to stop talking because he has to get to the next speaking engagement. HE ACTUALLY BLOWS OFF PART OF HIS “PUBLIC” PANEL TIME IN ORDER TO SPEAK WITH “INDIVIDUAL” FANS. He gains very little from this, especially in regards to “self promotion”, but he does this anyway. He seems to be genuinely grateful (to his fans) for his success.
    Speaking as a fan of Ennis, Ellis, Arron, Brubaker, Abnett and Lanning, Joe Hill and perhaps Hickman currently.. I think Millar is as talented as any of them. If you dont agree, then im willing to bet that you havent read much of Millar’s work. Reading one issue of wanted and one issue of kickass and the civil war series does not make you an expert on Millar’s talent. Granted i wasnt pleased with the civil war either.. but that was a marvel “architect’s collaboration anyway. Superior is great by the way and it has none of the kick ass bloodiness that some of you despise.
    Continue to kick boring comic ass Mr Millar.

  7. You know, I don’t think that people would make a stink about any of this if his books came out on time. He’s absolutely right on all his points, but the perception is out there because he announces a book and then it never comes out or is really delayed. That certainly doesn’t help his case from an outsiders point of view.

  8. Mark Millar is a legend. Amazing writer, great Guy, everything I look to be. Movies are cool, but I love how he honestly puts comics first. Something Grant Morrison needs to learn.

    Much love & respect, Millar.

  9. Mark Miller is the Michael Bay of comics. And I say that with the best intentions. The man makes gripping and fun comics for the most part but the most important thing is his comics sell. Movies look at that and see this model works so why not? Good for him. Love the guy and enjoy most his comics.

    • Comparing Millar to Michel Bay is the worst insult you could give him or any other creative person. If Michael Bay never made another movie the world would be a better place.

  10. I think that the reason these ideas about Millar are floating around is reflective of many fans’ attitude towards Millar’s work itself. I have had a mixed reaction to his writing, enjoying Civil War and 1985, but being disappointed with how Kick-Ass and Old Man Logan began with promising concepts before simply descending into cheap gore and shock tactics. I never bothered with Kick-Ass 2, let any of his other creater owned projects. I suspect that if there was less disagreement over the quality of his wirting, there would also be less of these theroies . . .

    That said, I believe that he does a good job of responding to the accusations against him. He has the right to craft his stories however he wishes for whatever his audience he might envision. And if it opens more doors for other creater owned projects, all the better. I’m just not convinced that he is a genius, or even reliable, talent.

    • To the delightful telepathic space dog. I love Cosmo by the way.
      Have you read ultimate FF… or Ultimate xmen? how bout MIllars run on the regular FF book. Have your read his run on the Authority. They were very good to say the least. I have a feeling that your issue with Old Man Logan is more about messing with established characters. You were probably one of those people that wanted Ben Reily dead and buried. I wasnt. I want these characters to stray from the norm. I dont want to read the same spiderman comics i was reading when i was 12. I think thats one of Millars talents. To take a story and go where no man has gone before with it. Even if he shytes all over the characters to do it. Fine with me.

    • Cosmo thanks you for your liking . . .

      I did read Millar’s run on the 616 Fantastic Four — thanks for reminding me about it. I started the run with strong expectations, but for whatever reason after an issue or two I would find my excitement for each arc dimishing. For me it seemed like he set up some interesting ideas, but didn’t follow through with them to their full potential. Or maybe the chacacters just didn’t come alive for me. Still, it wasn’t bad; I would give the whole run a three out of five.

      I don’t think that I have read any of Millar’s work in the Ultimate line. I’m not really a big Ultimate fan, though; except for Bendis’ stuff, little, if any of the Ultimate line has clicked with me. Haven’t looked at his Authority stuff.

      My problem with Old Man Logan was not “messing” with the characters. In fact, the aspect of the book which I enjoyed the most was the manner in which Millar depicted familar characters responding to what was, to the reader, an unfamilar situation. It was an intriguing world, which I was curious to see more of. Besides, Logan has long been a violent character forced into bloody scapes. My problem with the story is that the last installment or two seems to lose the thread of character drama and become an all out gore fest. Yes, it makes sense that Logan would kill Banner, only I did not need to see it depicted in such a gory, sensationalistic way. It just seemed exploiative. This is also my problem with Kick-Ass: started strong, then grew too steeped in excessive blood.

  11. I totally respect what Millar is saying here, but look at it from a fan perspective. You’re waiting for issue #4 of whatever Millar book but because the film has gone into production the books have ceased keeping any sort of release schedule. It is easy to feel betrayed by creators when you have supported them since way before they had the clout to even pursue a movie.

  12. The thing about Millar is that he’s falling into Michael Crichton territory. Interest in optioning his properties lulled after Airframe flopped, but Timeline was such a hit studios were fighting each other to get a piece of it. After that fiasco, one studio (I forget which onr) paid Crichton and his publishers a ton of money for the rights to Chrichton’s next three novels, sight-unseen. While those books went on to be bestsellers, they’ve mostly been panned by critics (and environmentalists) and movies of them have never gone beyond the script phase. (Prey, State of Fear, Next)

    I use this example because this is what I feel is going on with Millar, he’s doing really well, is able to option his comics for profit and bring the medium into the public. However, reviews of the source material over the past two years has been mostly mediocre to bad, I don’t see the same clamor for them that I saw for Kick-Ass. And more and more these books are being bought up by studios before the first issue hits. (Nemesis). When fans see this, and then see massive delays in the books, it’s not that off base to connect the two. I don’t think Millar is in it for the money, I think the man truly loves comics, but the feeling I get, and the way it’s been playing out leaves his latest works feeling hollow.

  13. I don’t begrudge Millar any of his success. I’ve enjoyed most if not all the books I’ve read by him. Does he push the envelope of good tase? Absolutely. But I think Garth Ennis does it more. He is marching to his own drummer, both creatively and financially, so more power to him.

    HOWEVER: He could deflect a lot of criticism and prevent ill-will if he would be more consistent and on time. It’s easy to see how the delays surroudning many of his books would lead people to assume what they do.

  14. More often than not when he announces a new creator owned book then a few weeks later an announcement that the movie has also been optioned. Studios just seem to jump onto the initial idea whether the execution or reception of the book is positive. War Heroes, Superior, Supercrooks are all optioned for films but are yet to be completely published. I’m not saying this is Millar’s fault for optioning the movies but the way it is seen from the outside world is that everything he does is for selling the movie rights. It looks like the movie is optioned before Millar releases anything and I know this is not true but he must be able to see how this looks from our standpoint. He would be better off waiting until the book has been completely released or at least partly before announcing any movie plans because it feels like the comics don’t stand up on their own and that they need a movie deal to be announced at the same time, making us think he’s in it for the movies. I don’t understand where all of these movie options come from, I thought Nemesis was average and i dropped Superior after issue 2. It feels like he’s trying to offend people now too with a boy impregnating his sister in Nemesis and the rape/child murder scenes from the latest issue of Kick-Ass, i thought they were both cheap shock moments. A lot of better works have been made in comics that could work as movies but Millar seems to be hot property.

  15. OK, i mean he clearly loves comic books.

    but, yeah, still waiting on war heros………

  16. It’s just hard for me to believe that he second guesses his writing when you immediately hear that a studio greenlit/bought a script of said comic days after the first issue is released.

    It happened with Kick-Ass, happened with Nemsis and Superior, and I think someone is going to be making that bank robbery, supervillain comic that’s coming up next too.

    I don’t judge the guy for trying to make money. He has great ideas in comics that can turn easily into a film and it’s smart to go into the business. But if you want to go into movie then just go into movies. You can write scripts and pitch like no one’s business. Just leave comics and go into movies full time. He’ll probably be more successful if he just sticks to movies rather then comics.

    • He said, pretty explicitly, that the reason that he DOESN’T become solely a screenwriter is because he loves the medium and loves working with the artists that he works with. Sounds like a genuine love to me.

  17. The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

  18. its funny how people like to hate just to hate. At the end of the day he is a business man, he loves to write comics, he is very good at it, if doing this gets him opportunities to make movies and earn him and his family money, then by all means go for it and congratulations to him. We all know how hard it was for artist and writers in the early days, so if there is a way for them to get paid and continue to do what they love i am all for it. I love what Mark Millar is writing and i will continue to support his work.

  19. Say what you want Mark. Geoff Johns manages to spin out awesome stories week in/week out, tweet, destroy the multiverse, bring back the multiverse, kill Flashes, revive GLs, make Aquaman important again, and make sense out of 60 years of DC universe all before breakfast.

  20. I never understood this complaint. If a creator has the option of making extra money of work they have already done… do it. You’ve already sunk the time to develop the characters, background, world and story framework and sold several thousand copies of your book, not bad. A movie studio wants to pay you another $100,000 dollars just to potential make your movie? Great! If you can get some points on the gross, even better. More power to Millar and everyone else who can make dollars from Hollywood with only one caveat: So long as the books keep coming and the stories finish.

  21. Maybe if he was interested in making good comics first?

  22. Also, I believe Mr. Millar is exaggerating how much money a screenwriter makes. There is a whole documentary on how little screenwriters make. I do understand his frustration at being pigeonholed, but you can’t call it unfair. I mean Wanted was a comic where he shoves his penis, for lack of a better metaphor, in every page. It ends with ‘This is my face when I’m fucking you in the ass.’ Through his comics and through his interviews, he has projected an arrogant persona and all the hate he generates are a result of that.

    He is also a very mediocre writer, especially since he broke away from Morrison. His dialogue is expository, his plots are gratuitous, lack anything resembling nuance and often times, unintentionally hilarious(see Nemesis) and he has severe distaste for his audience. But he has succeeded in collaborating, and accrediting, some of the best artists in the medium. So what if Kick-Ass was a terrible film, it resulted in John Romita, Jr. getting paid, and that will never be a bad thing.

    • I find it strange that someone who dislikes Millar’s work so much is still reading millar’s work. Why bother even watching kick ass? Personally i avoid things I don’t like. The fact of the matter is..He’s anything but arrogant in person. Have you met him? Obviously you have not. How does one “project an arrogant persona” through their fictional writing anyway? It is fictional writing right? How would you know someone is arrogant based on fiction writing. Thats a major stretch. (although he does joke about BM Bendis.. they are just jokes after all)
      I say again like ive said to a few others, and ill go out on a very large limb here and say your probably one of those people who likes to keep the status quo. I think the status quo gets stale after a while. I dont mind that Millar does not show reverence for every single character whether his own, marvel’s or D/C’s.
      A question to you.. why is it that Millar has always managed to get above average artists working with him.. long before Hollywood came knocking on his door? Maybe they recognize talent.
      And seriously you “hate” the guy? dislike i understand.. but “hate”…. thats just weird. I like the guy.. I dont love him. That would be weird.
      And last but not least if your going to accuse him of being arrogant you should have tried not to use words like expository on a comic site. It seems Im assuming your arrogant from your nonfiction typing.
      You shouldnt hate anyone but people that try to hurt you…or the people you care about. And Logan isnt realy a person. And last but not least Grant Morrison is way overrated. I loved WE3.. ive been bored to tears with almost everything else hes written. He’s a medicore talent in my opinon. Although i wish him luck with rogue trooper… may he find the good morrison when he writes the script for that movie. And may he get paid well for it.

    • Oh …. and i almost forgot .. the real reason people give Millar a hard time. Other than how he shytes on established characters. The main reason… is because of the same reason people try to trash Lebron James/ Brad Pitt/ Tom Cruise etc… You stick your head out in this world.. someone wants to come along and knock it off.. ITS CALLED ENVY.
      Personally im grateful to these artists that bring so much joy to my life.. i dont need to bring them down to my level. I think muddi wants Millar down in the dirt with him. Keep hating.

    • DUUUUUUDE! I actually liked Kick-Ass(the comic)! I mean, it was a Millar joint, so awkward pop-culture references and pointless exposition made up 40% of the content, but it still was very enjoyable. The movie was terrible though. Superman:Red Son and Marvel Knights Spider-Man are my favorite stories of the respective characters. I also never said I hated the guy. But you seem to have a hard time reading, so I can’t blame you for not reading between the lines in Mark Millar’s comics, or as you say ‘fiction writing’. For your information, there’s a lot you can say about a person with how they write. A lot. You must also find most of Millar’s writing before Ultimates 2 boring, because Morrison had a hand in them one way or another.

      As for me envying Mark Millar, well answering such a ludicrous insinuation is a zero-sum game. So I guess I just lost. 🙂

    • Ha!.. You said he generates hate. I don’t know why you would use that word.. cause i have’nt seen anyone else use it in reference to Millar. For someone that’s so wordy… i would think you would care about the precision of your wording. Maybe saying he “generates animosity” instead. I just made an assumption about you based on the words you use.. like you do with mr millar. There is a lot you can assume about a person by the way they write.. and a lot you can be wrong about.
      Wow and i just looked up his writing credits.. Millar has written issues for close to 50 different comics and Morrison had a hand in 4 of them. Aztek, skull kill crew, flash, and the swamp thing. And MIllar sites Swamp Thing as his worst work. What else did they collaborate on? I see 4 out of 50????
      Your saying Morrison helped him write ultimate FF, the first Ultimates, Ultimate xmen.. wanted, the authority, and all of his 5 years of work on 2000 AD??
      I said people envy people like Millar.. i didnt technically say you envy him… you know.. just like you said people hate millar.. like you didnt technically say you hate him.
      I dont think its ludicrous to say that people envy him.. what is this article about pal?? People saying hes gone hollywood.. hes got too big for his britches .. right? what is that about. You cant see how envy could be part of this?

    • Hate to burst your bubble, but Morrison grandfathered Millar into the industry. He even ghostwrote some of his issues for The Authority from the sounds of things. They were partners, in a sense, up until the Ultimates, where they parted ways.

      I will always love people defending famous people with the “You’re just jealous” thing. Always get a laugh out of that.

      Also find it odd that someone would say that using the word “expository” on a comics site was for some reason not ok. As if comics weren’t worth talking about in any manner other than “good” and “bad.”

    • Ya you burst my bubble… i was in man love with mr Millar .. and now im heart broken. Some of the issues? which ones… give me a link to this info (and maybe facts).. otherwise you could be just exaggerating Morrison’s contribution. Im seeing that one issue could have been ghostwrote for authority and you turn it into some issues. Interesting how that happens. Twist the truth a bit to make your point eh.
      Fact of the matter is all that its Morrison’s word against MIllar’s. No proof whatsoever of it. Hell… They have completely different styles of writing. Only similarity is that their both Scotsmen. Granted.. you could be entirely correct, but i imagine the truth to be somewhere in between what i think and what muddy thinks.
      You get a laugh out of people being envious of others with money or looks or power…. ya people are never envious of that.. your right.. that was just me having a laugh…
      I think that its possible.. that envy is involved with this Millar thing. I think its mostly because some people like to be contrarian .. they like to take whats hot and make it not. Like the movie Avatar. I enjoyed Avatar. Was it a masterpiece.. no.. but was it bad… no.. The second we start going to those extremes then somethings maybe a little shady.. or a little crazy. And again.. Millar clearly likes to mess with characters and turn things upside down… some people hate that. Its all those reasons and more that brings out these negative comments.. Black and White has nothing do with it.

      you say Not ok .. for ragging on muddy for using that word.. I was referring to making judgements about arrogance related to how someone writes.. he says Millar writes in an arrogant way… I say muddy writes in an arrogant way. Both are ridiculous. Get it. That had nothing to with comics … and not once on this site have said anything was either good or bad. Not once.

  23. I don’t believe a word of this and I haven’t been a fan of his for a while now. I’m sure I’d like his comics a lot more if I was 13.

    • What comics of his have you read. Let me guess. Its under 10 comics right? Do me a favor. Proove to us how mature you are. Give us a list of your favorite all time comics.

  24. Even though it’s now almost four years old, “Marvel 1985” remains one of my favorite mini-series of all time.

  25. It annoys me that we keep hearing that selling properties is the only way that a good writer can make money. If they are already a big writer then they are already making big money (and I’m just guessing Millar might be in this bracket). Morrison stakes in his book that a big writer can earn about $8k a month. Thats about $96k a year… who here is on that???
