This one goes back. Waaaaay back.
Indeed, the first news story ever published on Bleeding Cool had this headline:
Mark Millar And Dave Gibbons To Create New Comic Together
We later found out that Matthew Vaughn was a co-creator too. Whether this means he'll be making a film out of the comic, I can't guess, but it was definitely the intention somewhere along the line. Let's just see the comic come out first.
And it will be out before too long now – in February 2012, apparently. And it's a spy drama. And it's going to be called The Secret Service. And that's anotherr Bleeding Cool scoop.
I can see the "From the creator of Kick-Ass and the creator of Watchmen" ads already. And then they can stick "and the director of X-Men" on the end by the time it needs to go on the side of buses.
UPDATE: Comics Book Resources have now run teaser artwork from the comic.
