This is the best of the Millarworld books so far *

*Quote from Mr Jim O’Hara of this Parish.

I think we have something pretty special here and I’m very excited.

oh good, because i thought you were gonna be vague in this thread! :smiley:
You get me every time with these tease threads!


#3

I used think this was hyperbole. I just see Millarworld as getting better and better now. It’s a good time to be reading.


#4

I’ve been lucky enough to read this book in advance. It’s unlike anything Mark has written before, and unlike anything I’ve seen in comics in a long long time. I think it’ll capture a brand new audience and could be one of those books that gets recommended for years to come. It’s a delight, and folks who’ve enjoyed the recent Starlight & Chrononauts should be all over this.


#5

There really does seem to be a lot of hope in it. I’ve only read the first issue but it feels like watching E.T. did when I was a kid.


#6

I did enjoy Starlight…Chrononauts a bit less. It was good, but I think maybe the weakest of the Image-Millarworld stuff.
Too jumpy.

But that’s pretty good to hear.


#7

I loved Chononauts, and just read the 1st issue of Starlight this morning (glad I didn’t start that for Father’s Day! :wink: ) I’m pretty excited to see what this book is about.


#8

Loved Starlight, loved Chrononauts 1 (and delighted it is the first of a trilogy). Have no clue as to what “Huck” might be at this point. I do have a suspicion. Star-Kid got a very positive response in Starlight, with many people wanting a sequel starring him. I’m thinking that Mark, clever lad that he is, took that idea, mixed in some Samuel Clemens, and came up with a story about a star-kid that could reflect Twain’s Huckleberry Finn. In space.

A couple questions:

Is ‘Huck’ done, or in progress?

How is the next volume of American Jesus coming along? Is Peter Gross on art? If not in progress, do you have it slotted?

:beers:


#9

Huck not in space or related to Starlight:)

Yes, Huck’s first arc (six issues) done last month and American Jesus is indeed slotted, but that date won’t be public for a while yet. Pete co-owns with me and will always be the artist!

Aha! “First arc” is it? Thanks, Mark!


#11

Sounds interesting. Mark is always excited about his new releases but the use of the word “special” is new. I’ve not been buying a lot of American format comics recently. I may have to dip in to this…


#12

So where is this announcement?


#13

Rafael Albuquerque was the next surprise guest on stage. He’s the artist of the recently teased “[Huck],” written by Mark Millar. “Do you remember those old '80s movies – ‘Back to the Future,’ ‘Indiana Jones’? – don’t they just feel great every time we look at them? ‘Huck’ really brings that feel.” He said “Huck” is about a guy with “learning difficulties,” who does good for good’s sake. “He helps people in his small-town community. He’s just special in all kinds of ways. He’s not only a great heart, but he also has some special powers. He’s much stronger than a normal person. He’s much faster.” The tagline on the slide reads, “What if the person you least expected had an amazing secret?”

Good get!

I really enjoyed his work on American Vampire, great choice. The story sounds like it’s right up my alley. :thumbsup:

Did anyone else spot the typo in the CBR article? They misspelled Scottie Young. :neutral_face:


#16

They also typed Huck as Hulk. I assume it’s someone typing on their phone while in the panel room.


#17

Sherlock Holmes foiled yet again!


#18

Agreed. This sounds really interesting.


#19

Forest Gump with superpowers is a pretty great idea.


#20

The teaser is him running…that’s just neat.
