Comic Matters has received this official Press Release:
MARK MILLAR LAUNCHES A STUNNING NEW VOLUME OF CLiNT!
100 pages of eye-blistering comics inside your all new CLiNT!
Hot off the back of his 2012 Kapow convention success, Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar launches a stunning new volume of CLiNT, with a
new #1! Four brand-new stories begin between its covers, coupled to a brand new look, new logo and new attitude!
Every issue now features epic news and interview exclusives you won’t read anywhere else – from set reports, casting announcements and
extensive actor grillings to behind-the-scenes commentaries and new art from top comics talent!
Hitting comic stores May 23rd, CLiNT #2.1 showcases a double kidney punch of new Mark Millar strips: SUPERCROOKS with artist Leinil Yu,
the story of a group of failed supercriminals who head to Spain for one last heist.
Next up, THE SECRET SERVICE, Millar’s hotly anticipated collaboration with Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons and
Kick-Ass / X-Men: First Class
director Matthew Vaughn – the fast-tracked movie is being plotted by Vaughn at the same time as the comic!
The CLiNT reboot also boasts the EXCLUSIVE, Hollywood-baiting DEATH SENTENCE strip – which has built up a wave of well-deserved hype.
Creators and critics alike have been lining up to praise the hotly-anticipated sex, STDs and superheroics saga, written by newcomer
Montynero and illustrated by Mike Dowling (2000AD, Rex Royd, Torchwood). Dramatic, thought-provoking and hilarious, Death Sentence
is a take-down of celebrity culture that also thumbs its nose at invasive modes of government – and you’ll only find it in CLiNT!
Speaking of EXCLUSIVES – don’t miss a bold new chapter of REX ROYD by outspoken satirist Frankie Boyle, taking the planet’s most immoral
super-genius into uncharted, big-budget brain-buster territory!
Mark Millar discusses Supercrooks and American Jesus movies in our exclusive Millarworld movie round-up feature.
“Everything that I’ve done, movie-wise, I’ve gotten a little more involved.” says Millar. “On Wanted, I was just involved at a tangent,
I’d just come in for meetings and watch footage. With Kick-Ass, I was very involved from the beginning, from the two month when the
screenplay was being put together, though costume designs and all of that. And from that, to Supercrooks, American Jesus and Kick-Ass 2,
which will feel incredibly hands-on.”
To hear Supercrooks director Nacho Vigalondo’s side of the story, check out our exclusive new interview with him, available only on
Plus we celebrate 20 Years of LENORE, with a special feature exploring Roman Dirge’s morbid imagination with a 4 page sequence from Lenore
#4: Revenge of the Creepig! And don’t miss our investigation into the incredible adventures of a real-life London superhero!
As a sneak preview of what else is coming up in the new volume of CLiNT – don’t miss the launch of Kick-Ass spin-off HIT-GIRL, from
Millar and John Romita, Jr, which starts in CLiNT #2.2!
CLiNT #2.1 is available from all good magazine retailers and comic stores from May 23rd.
