Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar is set to launch a global talent search to find a new generation of comics writers and artists. The winners will be granted the opportunity to write or draw a strip in a Millarworld anthology.
From 28 September, creators will be able to upload an example of their work to the Millarworld website. Six writers and six artists will be picked out, partnered up and given the chance to create a story using some of the Millarworld cast of characters. “There seems to be a disconnect between genuinely talented students at schools, colleges and universities getting into the comic-book industry,” says Millar. “I want to provide a platform to enable these people to showcase their talents.”
Millar himself will be sitting down to judge the entries as they come in. The finished stories will be published in a not-for-profit comic that will be available in stores worldwide. “I think you’ve got a bit of a responsibility, y’know?” Millar said in an exclusive interview with Comic Heroes. “I’ve been really lucky with my career, so it just seemed like a nice thing to do.”
