FROM THE MOUTH OF...

Mark Millar. On his Fantastic Four run with artist Bryan Hitch:

IGN Comics: How long are you and Bryan looking to work on Fantastic Four? Could you see yourself staying on board if Bryan shifts to other projects? Also, when is this arc expected to begin?

Millar: It kicks off in January and we're on until December. This book is out every month and we've been stockpiling all year to make sure there are no problems. We'd have a fill in before we'd have a delay. I am ****ing sick of late comics. Seriously, I stipulated this and everyone was in agreement. It's a monthly book.

Is it?

FF #554 (shipped 2/13/08) on time
FF #555 (shipped 3/12/08) on time
FF #556 (shipped 4/09/08) on time
FF #557 (shipped 5/21/08) 1 week late
FF #558 (shipped 6/25/08) 2 weeks late
FF #559 (shipped 8/13/08) 5 weeks late
FF #560 (shipped 9/24/08) 6 weeks late
FF #561 (scheduled to ship 9/10/08) 5 weeks late so far

'Sick of late comics' hmmmm?

  • Pretty much sums up why I gave up on monthlies back circa 1997. Drives me nuts. Great blog, btw.

  • Does Millar actually listen to/believe anything he says? Or does hype just fall out of his mouth every time he opens it?

    Methinks it's the latter.
