You know that scene in Misery where James Caan finishes his book and treats himself to a cigarette?
Well, after completing Reborn for Mister Greg Capullo, the most complex and epic project I’ve ever written, I am about to treat myself to a big cup of tea with three sugars. But this was as satisfying as it was challenging and I had young Capullo there to hold my hand the whole way through writing it. I cannot wait to share this with you guys. We’re doing NO interviews and giving no more info about the story until ONE SINGLE INTERVIEW the Monday before release just so you can experience this to the full. Greg will be sharing his phenomenal art from time to time, but that’s all you see until October and you see the first lettered pages when you open the book.
In an age of too much noise it’s actually really interesting promoting something this way.
In the meantime, I’m going to get back onto two projects I was writing in secret before I started Reborn in January (yes, these six issues really have taken me five months of world-building!) which takes me right up to the end off the year when I’ve carved out TWELVE WEEKS to do either a big MARVEL OR DC special project. In the new year I’m starting Millarworld Phase 2 and the sequels to all the movies we have coming up like Superior, Empress and so on, but just out of pure fanboy fun I’m going to do my first work-for-hire in a number of years at the end of this year and do nothing else for twelve full weeks. It’s actually going to be a lovely change of pace before I jump back into my own stuff and I’m meeting Marvel pals in NYC and DC buddies in LA to have a chat. I’m totally into both so just going to shoot down the pub in both cities and see what works out. I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, time for tea. Hollywood people, that genius Greg Capullo is now deep into issue two and all the scripts are here so Reborn will be going out next week to the producer I’ve had my eye on for this. Incredibly exciting. More soon!
