According to Rich Johnston:

But during the talk, he also mentions that, as well as his three creator-owned comic books he’s creating this year (Nemesis, Leinel Yu’s unnamed book and Dave Gibbons’ unnamed book I think), he’s also doing “a big Spider-Man story for Marvel.”

Plus Mark talks about a movie he's going to direct.

Bigger than Trouble?
Bigger than Spidey fighting the Avengers because someone kidnapped, um, whoever they kidnapped?
Bigger than OMD?

Didn't Loeb and Campbell say the same thing?

Yeah, whatever happened with that?

I'm down for this. I really dug Millar's Marvel Knights Spidey series.

Wow. Rich Johnston reporting gushingly on Millar hyping himself. I haven't seen that since, well, the last time Millar hyped something.

Campbell can't draw more than two sequential pages a year.

I loved most of his Marvel Knights run (and probably would have enjoyed more of it if Osborn hadn't be the guy at the end of the road at the same time as he was also revealed to be the father of Gwen's babies...it was just too much "It was Osborn all along!" at once for me.

All of this to say, I'm on board.

One thing about Millar I like is, he works with some of the best artists in the industry.

Sadly, literally everyone I'd nominate is doing an Avengers comic.

Millar is a guy who lies. WHat I'm saying is he's a lying liar who lies sometimes when he opens his mouth hole to tell lies.


I'll believe this series when I see the overpriced Hardcover version of it at Barnes and Nobles of Earth 3.

And that's probably for the best, since a Loeb Spider-Man project would be an unholy terror unleashed upon the earth. Let's hope it never happens.

If I had to choose someone, let's see Mike Allred draw Spidey and his villains.

Jeez, who's passing out the Haterade in this thread?

Didn't he try to do this with his MK Spider-Man story, which started off strong and became just another "Norman did it" story?

No Haterade, just been burned by Millar "announcements" like there before. Should have just posted a picture of a grain of salt, but went a different route.

Spider-Man Blue was bad.

Yes cause there were so many of those "Norman did it" stories, especially considering that he was dead for 30 years. :mistrust:

MK Spidey had a lot of good ideas, but ultimately I don't think the tone of Millar's writing 'felt' right on the book.

Also, when he doesn't stick around to deal with the fallout on new series, a lot of the 'big' things that he sets up just get forgotten. I'd like to see Millar commit to a long-form book again.

Marvel Knights Spider-Man was a masterwork. This will likely be one as well I predict. :D

Millar is the funniest liar I know. The first time we ever had a NY Drink Up (years ago), Millar tried to convince us all that X-Men and Uncanny X-Men comics were going to be written by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. I'm trying to remember what else he tried to peddle us

Then there are the projects that he legitimately intended to do that just never happened.

A Punisher one-shot with Bryan Hitch.
The Run mini series with Ashley Wood.
And the time he was supposed to write an years worth of content for the three X-titles.

This seems to be a weird venue to lie about something, though. And while his return to Spider-Man would be welcome, it's not exactly a massive announcement. If he wanted massive interest, he could have said that he was doing it with Todd Mcfarlane, or something.

It was pretty fun. The only problem I had with it was: Aunt May was gone for how long? At least a couple of months, right? And no one noticed?

Well, considering that people had previously thought she was dead (and then she returned somehow), I guess by that point they figured it was normal behavior for her.

That is more like a person who just gets excited about plans and wants to tell everyone, even if they end up falling through. Alot of creators tend to not talk about ideas because they're afraid it will jinx it and it'll fall through. I think that Mark tends to get too excited to keep it quiet.

Yeah, that's my beef with it. It should have taken place over a shorter period of time.

MK Spidey was... not good. Peter unmasking was a bad idea. Millar + Spider-Man = no thanks.

The comic lasted 12 months, but the story took place in a few days.

Ah, the beauty of fiction.

Actually I think we heard that at his second party, the one upstairs at the Irish Rogue (the party where Xander and I were drunkenly telling Garth Ennis how awesome MAX Punisher was...) and I think at the time Tarantino and Rodriquez had been talking to Marvel about doing something so I don't know that it was completely made up. Or, it was total BS and he was just waiting for one of us to post about it on-line later that night...



I do remember him telling me all excited about the opening of Lindelof's Hulk/Wolverine mini that was then coming up... he just didn't mention that I would have to wait years and years to read it all. :(

I don't have as fond of memories of that story as others seem to either. The art was great, but the story not so much. I would give Millar another shot myself probably though.

Fuck Millar Haters

Fuck Rich Haters

If the story's good, I'm happy. If bad, I won't buy it. What I won't do is prejudge.

As to Rich, I like reading his stuff, it's not always right, but it's fun to read.

I wasn't a big fan.


and I gotta say. i like the guy as a writer BUT I'm not going to buy anything about him developing a new movie property or nothing. the dude is either too quick to jump the gun and make an announcement or he's just unreliable with his announcements of this sort.
that's just me though.

I AM a fan of his writing though.

No way. The story had to have taken place over a longer period of time than a few days. I think they even make reference to how much time has passed somewhere about half way through.

I could imagine each of the arcs took place over a couple of days, but the whole thing would have to be at least a week I think.

Millar has just lost me in every way. If it's not Kick-Ass, I have no further interest in anything he does. And even then, the last issue of Kick-Ass hit some wrong notes for me.

Howlett
03-06-2010, 01:39 PM
I'll read anything he writes if it affects a book/books that I'm currently reading, like Civil War did. But I'm done with Millar otherwise. I probably won't even bother picking up the next Kick-Ass volume when it comes out.

I wish him the best of luck on his future film pitche... I mean, comic projects.
