I used to love me some Mark Millar. And to an extent I still do, though I’m beginning to grow tired of his formula. Super Vulgarity + Super Violence + “Superheroes in the Real World” x Infinity Comic books. But despite my Millar-Fatigue, I’m sort of excited for another creator owned title of his. Because I’m a worthless fanboy.
Mark Millar and Leinil Francis Yu have announced “Superior,” a new, creator-owned project that will be hitting stores in October 2010. While little is known about the series at this time other than the title, Millar has provided CBR with an exclusive look at these 5 teaser posters for the project.
Perhaps Millar is taking on a more uplifting approach with this comic? The teasers seem pretty dismal, and a bit provocative. It’d be nice to see Millar take on something that isn’t all doom and gloom, or rather convey a message that isn’t “LOL, Superdeath!!!!”, but maybe I’m just overreacting. His run on Old Man Logan certainly posited a flower amidst a wasteland. Like I said, I can’t help but be intrigued.
