Mark Millar's CLiNT Magazine Cancelled On The Day Kick Ass 2 Launches In The UK
After increasingly delayed issues, poor performance on the UK news stand it was intended for, and a disappearance from Titan's online promotion efforts, Bleeding Cool had been asking Titan Comics if Mark Miller's CLiNT magazine was to be cancelled after it's upcoming Film Special issue. We kept getting no comments, or changed conversations. Today, Titan released the[...]

Are You An Brilliant Artist? Mark Millar Wants You
But concern that Mark Millar's CLiNT would run out of Mark Millar material before Nemesis 2 and Jupiter's Legacy came along may be assuaged by… CLiNT being rather late instead. The December issue, featuring Hit Girl and Secret Service may not be out until the end of the January Even while publisher Titan has been advertising[...]

What Could CLiNT Look Like In A Few Months Time?
When CLiNT Magazine relaunched earlier this year, the title changed to Mark Millar's CLiNT But with Secret Service and Hit Girl approaching the end of their serialisation in CLiNT  – what's next?

Greg Rucka On Leaving Marvel And DC Behind
You know, I'm starting to worry for  the now-named Mark Millar's CLiNT With Jupiter's Children and Nemesis 2 both delayed until next year, are we going to get to a point where Mark Millar's CLiNT runs out of Mark Millar material to print? Will we see Unfunnies, Shadowmen and Saviour pulled out from the bottom[...]

It's what most people called it, now it's official, the new issue of CLiNT has been titled Mark Millar's CLiNT It has also begun republishing Death Sentence, which you may have first read about on Bleeding Cool last year. Also, the pre-publication and published covers have slight differences… the Kick Ass and Supercrooks movie features got[...]

Will America's Got Powers Be The Biggest Bang For Your Buck In April?
Because you don't get more top flight than those two. In the next issue of CLiNT (in the hands of certain lucky people now), Bryan Hitch shows off some preview art Here is a brief example of that; The magazine describes the comic, based on a superpowered reality show as the only way for people to deal[...]
Supercrooks by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu: The Prologue
The next issue of CLiNT Magazine accidentally shipped to comic stores three weeks ahead of schedule, requiring Diamond to request that shops not sell the comic Even thought it had already been on sale for days at Forbidden Planet and in a number of bookstores. Nevertheless, most seem to have complied. Most. I've been sent a number of[...]
CLiNT #15 Ships To UK Stores Early By Mistake
I understand that certain stores in the UK have received CLiNT Magazine #15 three weeks a week earlier than intended – including part of the final chapter of Kick Ass 2, before the final issue is published by Marvel next week. It also has a special Supercrooks "prelude" that won't appear in the Marvel version It's[...]
Titan Creates Super PAC Ad For Clint 2.0 Relaunch
In this parody of American political advertising to relaunch CLiNT Magazine as CLiNT 2.0 that you may have read about at Bleeding Cool last week, they seem to have made some basic errors. While they do attack both Marvel's $3.99 comics and DC's Before Watchmen, they also include the line "Mark Millar approves this message" which,[...]
CLiNT Magazine To Relaunch As CLiNT 2.0 In May

Supercrooks Prelude In March's CLiNT
I think that's correct. A prelude Supercrooks story by Mark Millar (and, by absentia, not Leinil Yu) will appear in March's copy of CLiNT magazine and, apparently, won't appear anywhere else. Though I'll bet you it will appear in the eventual trade paperback. Just not in the Marvel comic It's one way to get some more original material[...]

Kick Ass 2 To Give Us One Of Those Unforgettable Images (SPOILER)
The couple were caught when they trued to get the photos developed and a friend wasn't working at the developer that day… …anyway that's what I was reminded of when I picked up the new issue of CLiNT #10 this week, with more pages from Kick Ass 2 yet to be seen in the Marvel printing[...]

CLiNT #10 is the first issue in CLiNT's new rejigged six-weekly schedule, out on August 18th in the UK. Except it's coming out seven weeks after the previous issue.

Wednesday Comics Review: CLiNT #9 Now With Added Jimmy Carr
The biggest change to CLiNT#9, in UK shops tomorrow and US shops in a month, is the lack of articles. CLiNT was always sold as a collection of comics and articles, with an eye on the newstand mainstream market, almost with comics snuck in there, initially at least, And it was the articles that suffered the[...]

Ian Rankin Writes Comic For CLiNT #6
Here's a first look at the cover of CLiNT #6, now out sometime in March And, it seems, with the finale of the second issue of Kick Ass 2 Which will come first, the Marvel publication or the CLiNT publication is anyone's guess.

Saturday Comics Review: CLiNT #5
But you do get is another  six pages of Kick Ass 2 #2, still yet to be published by Marvel. CLiNT's biggest strength, and something I've rarely seen mentioned, is its size The new Kick Ass material is fun and all, as the supervillain motif starts to spread through the comic, with all of the foreboding[...]
Why Frankie Boyle's Comic Is So Much Better Than His Comedy
Frankie Boyle, author of Rex Royd in CLiNT, and famed British stand up comedian is in trouble in the UK, for a joke he made about glamour model Jordan's obese, blind, disabled young son, Harvey. In his new "no limits" TV show Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights on Channel 4, as part of a standup set he[...]
