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.”

Kick-Ass or ass-kicked in Mil­lar and Romita Jr’s comic?

Kick-Ass soon starts to live up to his name.
