MARK MILLAR: Millar’s Pub
Saturday, October 24, 2020 – Noon ET / 9am PT
Get a front row seat for a 1-hour conversation with Mark Millar, one of the most influential comic creators of the modern age, as we discuss plans for Millarworld, Netflix, past and future projects, and a whole lot more!
Mark Millar is a New York Times bestselling author, Hollywood producer, and now president of his own division at Netflix.
His DC Comics work includes the seminal Superman: Red Son. At Marvel Comics, he created The Ultimates, which was selected by Time Magazine as the comic book of the decade, and described by screenwriter Zak Penn as his major inspiration for The Avengers movie.
Millar also created Wolverine: Old Man Logan and Civil War. Civil War was the basis of the Captain America: Civil War movie, and Old Man Logan was the inspiration for Fox’s Logan. Mark has been an executive producer on all adaptations of his books, and worked as a creative consultant to Fox Studios on their Marvel slate of movies.
Millar’s creator-owned books Kick-Ass, Wanted, and Kingsman: The Secret Service have all been adapted into hugely successful Hollywood franchises.
Since selling his publishing company to Netflix in 2017, Millar also signed on to exclusively create comics, TV series, and movies for the streaming service. Adaptations of Jupiter’s Legacy, The Magic Order, Reborn, Sharkey the Bounty Hunter, American Jesus, Empress, and Super Crooks are among those currently being made right now, with Jupiter’s Legacy the first to be streamed.
“What a treat!” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Mark’s work is certainly some of the most widely known and broadly enjoyed in the industry, and adaptations of his comics to the big screen have been spectacular. It’s a real privilege to have him joining this year, and we know fans the world over will be tuning in for his session!”
