Mark Millar announced a lot of things at the Diamond Retail Summit at MCM London Comic Con yesterday. But not everything made the PR burst that was sent to ComicBook.
Such as how he sees Huck with Rafael Albuquerque as an 18 issue mini-epic, told over three years, with six issues a year.
How the high concept of Empress is "what if you married Ming the Merciless, and then realised he was a dick twenty years later and wanted to get away from him". 24 issues are planned with Stuart Immomen.
The Greg Capullo project will be for next summer and the Jae Lee project for next winter.
And, elaborating on the Hit Girl news, this will be new stories from new writer and artists teams. He said that he wants the characters to continue, even if he's too busy to work on them, and wants to see new stories himself. We are to expect news on who is writing and drawing these books on January 10th.
