So I woke up on Friday with an amazing idea for a big DC project. Not surprisingly, it’s a Superman epic and it all kind of just clicked with me, an idea I’d had in my head for the last five years and which finally came together somewhere between closing my eyes on Thursday night and eating my Porridge on Friday morning.
At the same time, I’ve been talking to my old pals at Marvel about doing something for the last eighteen months. Last month I came up with the perfect project. Like the Superman story, it’s just six issues long, but would be a major work and something that scratches a fanboy itch. A thing to be ticked off my bucket-list before I get into all the sequels I’ve been plotting from Starlight to Superior to Huck and all the others.
The only downside is that I only have 12 weeks set aside at the end of the year to do ONE special project for one of the Big 2 as the artists are ready on all my Millarworld sequels immediately after. It’ll actually be a lovely change of pace as I finish off phase one of my creator-owned books, the final script for the Capullo project wrapping up tomorrow and the big Romita Jr project written between now and October. This will be my one and only WFH project for the next couple of years and both have me ACHING to get into them, both just really exciting to me.
Both companies are also into it so one way or another these two stories will get done over the next couple of years with one most definitely written by this Christmas and drawn by an artist who will make your knees knock.
Seriously, you guys will love. My plan here is do the either the best Superman story ever or the most important Marvel comic of the last twenty years.
More as it happens.
