Vincent's DC exclusive deal is currently scheduled to come to an end with his Pax America comic with Grant Morrison.
They have worked together before, most prominently on The Authority, but not for a while. Their 4/11 story about Mark's ancestors for Marvel was the last time.
Mark has been hinting at another major creator-owned series with a world class creator for next year.
And it might amuse Mark to nick Vincent back from his rival Grant Morrison.
Can we start speculating about a Marvel Icon series by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely for late 2011?
Or was it just a drink amongst good friends, and everything else is just Fanboys! Gone! Wild!?
Neither Mark nor Vince returned e-mails…
