Chrononauts – A New Comic From Mark Millar And Sean Gordon Murphy? (UPDATE)

Mark Millar teased this last week.

It wasn't, obviously. Mark Millar cited a trip to London as delaying the it, promising the real announcement this week instead.

But Bleeding Cool doesn't want to keep you waiting any longer. We have, if nothing else, the name and creative team.

Really, we have nothing else.

The new comic book, presumably from Image Comics, is Chrononauts by Mark Millar and Sean Gordon Murphy.

No details, no art, no anything, but the name does suggest time travelling explorers, does it not? There was a card game released a while ago with the same name – but not a comic book. And the name was used to describe government appointed time travellers in the TV show Seven Days.

Expect an official announcement through some sizeable media source imminently.

UPDATE: Mark Millar writes,

Uh, that absolutely isn't the book we're announcing over next week or so :)

The actual book still has some colours I want to fine tune and the logo but the trip last week skewed my sched a bit and I'm only just back on this now. There's two artists involved in this new book, which you'll understand when I release, and need to have both of them in synch before anything gets released.

You're all going to lose your mind when you see what this book is. In a weird way it's so, so obvious, but nobody's seen this one coming. Sean ain't the artist, though we definitely do plan to work together at some point.

Even more interesting! I guess we'll have to wait even longer for a Chrononauts announcement… or whatever it is that is going on. Mark seems to use some very specific language here… I'm wondering if it involves Katana Collins now as well…

As ever time will tell!
