What a cracking night last night.
The Two Phillipes and their producer Joe, all from Paris, made the most amazing documentary covering Marvel’s 1996 bankruptcy collapse and subsequent rise, featuring lots of great talking heads with the inside scoop on Marvel’s most dramatic story ever. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough and would urge you to see if it you can. It’s called Marvel Renaissance and I think they’re going to get a Kick-Starter going to get the whole thing in DVD.
Millarworld drink-up in CCA after. We planned to hit another pub, but by the time I came downstairs everyone was embedded with lots of drinks in front of them. Most of our local gang here, pictured below. Brilliant to see everyone, especially our pals from afar.
Clockwise from Left to Right: Cindy, New Zealander Mark Irwin (one of the Millarworld Annual New Talent Winners), film-makers Joe, Phillipe and Phillipe, big Tyler Collins, young John McPhail (just watching their movie right now, by the way), Millarworld editor Rachael, Nicola, Lucy, yours truly, Emma from Millarworld, my drinking bud Big James, Martin, Millarworld’s Louise and Claire, Helen, Nicolette and Joe.
