Netflix Publishing Mark Millar/Oliver Coipel Comic Book

Abraham Riesman provides the basics. This is potentially a big deal depending on how many comics Netflix ends up doing, although there doing a lot seems to run against a lot of conventional wisdom where it's easier for the company to buy successful sub-groups that already do most of the work in getting this done. Millar was a pretty unique combination of established film adaptation success story and force in the comics world. There just aren't a lot of people like that, those that exist might want to seek their own deals on an individual or collective basis, and developing them from scratch takes skill and investment.

The comic sounds like the very typical Mark Millar broad, movie-pitch idea. Let's hope it's slightly more than just that, as recent, sparsely told comics have been for the longtime writer and his various collaborators.
