Jonathan Ross And Bryan Hitch To Create Comic For 2012?

Jonathan Ross And Bryan Hitch To Create Comic For 2012?Recently Bleeding Cool reported that Ultimates creator Bryan Hitch looked to be teasing a creator owned project for the summer of 2012. At the time I speculated this may be the long-expected Olympus project from both Hitch and oft-collaborator Mark Millar.

Turns out that was wrong. While I don't have a title. pitch or a synopsis, I'm told by the kind of person who should know that Bryan Hitch's project will written by British broadcaster and comedian, Jonathan Ross.

Ross has already co-created the comic book Turf for Image with Tommy Lee Edwards for Image, and the pair have a superhero project to follow that, Golden Age.

Bryan Hitch is normally associated as working for Marvel Comics and he may have a contract that prohibits working outside the company, so the new book may be published through Marvel Icon – that is, if Bryan Hitch is restrained by an exclusive Marvel contract next summer.

Neither Jonathan nor Bryan responded to enquiries.

Bryan did however tweet "Today is a day I can't tell you about. Huge fun ahead but no rumours or guesses would ever be correct. You just couldn't. ;)" which may be related…  or may not.
