So What's Coming From Mark Millar And Millarworld In 2017 After Reborn?

The currently-published Reborn series by Mark Millar and Greg Capullo is the only new Millarworld title being published. The final issue is scheduled for March 26th. But with Logan in the cinemas then based on his and Steve McNiven's Old Man Logan, wouldn't it be nice if they had something to follow that up? And what about the other planned Millarworld titles announced in October 2015 that didn't make it?

Greg Capullo's Reborn came out, but Millar's project with Jae Lee did not. It was meant to have been out this winter.

Chrononauts: Futureshock was announced for July 2016 with Sean Murphy. Currently it is not yet scheduled. Murphy was busy finishing Tokyo Ghost which probably delayed work on the title, only to be followed by him signing a 2 year exclusive to with DC to work on All Star Batman and his own Batman limited series.

Hit-Girl was announced for January 2017 with Rafael Albuquerque. It is not yet scheduled. Albuquerque is working on All Star Batman and American Vampire with Scott Snyder.

He also sees Huck with Rafael Albuquerque as an 18 issue mini-epic, told over three years, with six issues a year. So the second set for 2017 should be along soon.

Kick-Ass was announced for January 2017 with John Romita Jr. Also not yet scheduled and Romita has been announced as the new Suicide Squad artist starting in March 2017.

Super Crooks: The Bounty Hunter was announced for 2017 with Leniel Yu. It is not yet scheduled but Yu hasn't yet been announced for anything past IvX, so we may see it in 2017. The only thing that may challenge it is another Millarworld title.

Superior 2, also not officially announced, but Millar has stated on his forum that he is currently writing it. Which will Yu work on first?

Untitled Millar/Hitch title was announced for Winter 2015. Also not yet scheduled. Bryan Hitch dropped his own Image series Real Heroes and signed an exclusive with DC. Maybe we will see this when his exclusive is over?

American Jesus: Messiah – announced for 2017 with Peter Gross. Not yet scheduled but one of the more likely to be.

Starlight 2 is not officially announced, but Millar has stated on his forum that he is working on the the sequel for Goran Parlov to illustrate.

And Nemesis Returns, the sequel to the 2009 series with Steve McNiven, was unveiled in August 2012, rescheduled for 2013 and… well it would be nice to have for Logan year. Just saying.

Millar won't even admit The Unfunnies exists and the artist doesn't mention it on his website, so don't expect this comic to get a sequel either.

So what else from Millarworld for 2017? The new talent annual of course, and Millar does have the habit of surprising us all with new titles as well.

Thanks to Scott Grimbleby.
