I’VE WAXED lyrical before about the genius that is Mark Millar, the Scottish writer who is now the leading comic book author in the world.
I was told by my dealer in strict confidence a few months ago that his latest masterpiece, Kickass, was to be made into a movie, following the success of the movie Wanted, also based on a Millar work.
I only mention this because Carolyn and I had a conversation the other night about the legendary Glen Michael and whether or not he was still alive. He is, and he’s to make a chameo appearance in the movie of Kickass at Mark’s request.
Before you snort and dismiss “superhero” literature for being only for kids, check out Millar’s The Ultimates, Wanted or Superman: Red Son. I’m sure my dealer can secure any of them for you at a good price, and he runs an excellent mail order service.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Mark Millar’s a genius. And he’s Scottish. Huzzah!
