Well, until they find out what’s up your sleeve after this. :wink:

I really love what I’ve seen of the book so far and can’t wait to see how others react to it. I think it has huge potential. I was most intrigued by this line.

You’re also known for doing self-contained stories and if the opportunity arises, you will do a spin-off. Is that the same plan with Huck, or do you have a magnum opus ready for this one?

Mark: I’ve got eighteen issues worked out. I think it can actually run and run. I’ve certainly got eighteen worked out, and Rafa and I are committed to doing three, six issue stories. But I don’t want to interfere with Rafa’s schedule on American Vampire. Although, Rafa’s probably the fastest artist I’ve ever worked with. He can handle it no problem.

I know we kind of get that with the multi-volume series like Kick-Ass and the Jupiter books but I would kind of like to see an ongoing Millarworld title.

I just had a look at the preview. Looks really good. I think I’ll have to make space in my pull list for it…


#4

Millar’s on fire. Starlight, Jupiter’s Legacy, and Circle are his best works. Leagues beyond his earlier work. More maturity and restraint. Excited for Huck. I have a feeling it’s gonna be an iconic character especially if there’s gonna be a movie.


#5

He really does just keep getting better.

Great interview!

"A character with no dark side is fascinating to me, because the minute I put them in the real world…that’s when it gets interesting: The guy who no matter what, will always do the right thing to do.
Fundamentally, it’s the most old fashioned idea of what a superhero is."
This has me really intrigued, I can’t wait to get into this.


#7

I was on the fence about this. Despite all the nice things people have said about it, I couldn’t see what the hook was for me.

Until I read this interview. Or specifically, just Mark’s answer to the first question.

Now I’m hooked :smile:


#8

Uh oh. I hope this thread doesn’t descend into a you-know-who of you-know-what ruckus!


#9

I have no idea what you’re talking about :angel:


#10

I actually genuinely don’t know !!!

There’s been a long running thread on here (and the old board) which you’ve hit on with this line: The minute you see Superman snapping someone’s neck, that’s when you’ve gone so far away from that core idea of what a superhero is, you know?.


#12

I’d suggest that Huck is maybe the most original comic story in years. The first issue should be a phenomena. I haven’t ever read anything this pure.


#13

It is really great stuff. I can’t wait to read more.


#14

All joking about neck-snapping aside, I’ve waited a long time for somebody to write serious stories about superheroes behaving how superheroes are supposed to behave.

Ironic that it’s the man who has a reputation for grim, stories full of profanity and over-the-top
violence who is doing it.


#15

It’s odd that Mark continues to carry that moniker in some crowds when he is now writing some of the most bright and hopeful stuff out there. It goes to a whole new level (at least from what I’ve seen) with this.


#16

It’s funny because 90% of what I’ve done since starting at Marvel is PG (we couldn’t even say Hell and Damn in Ultimates I think), but I guess you just hit a much wider audience with the movies and even though Kingsman and Wanted just 12 issues between them they made a big, violent cultural impact. Kick-Ass too. More people know this than 1985 or Starlight or Ultimates or Superman or Chrononauts.

Well, so far :smile:

I’ve always liked doing both. They’re both great fun, but this is def a period where I’m interested in doing vast, sweeping heroism. It’s what I’m into as a reader and a viewer at the moment too.

Me too.

This feels like a breath of fresh air.

Check out Greg Pak’s current Action Comics, it’s Superman done right IMO.

I hope this becomes an ongoing, Huck really has the potential to be your most iconic character. This could be something adults, teens, and even kids could enjoy and love.
