Three Mark Mil­lar comics that would make amaz­ing TV shows

Net­flix have bought the rights to the Kick-ass writer’s pub­lish­ing house, Mil­lar­world. Ex­pect to see one or all of these on a screen near you, soon

NME - - FRONT PAGE - Neme­sis hit-girl Su­per Crooks

2010

Not one of Mil­lar’s best, but a left-field take on the su­per­hero genre. Thought Bat­man could be a bit of an a**ehole? Neme­sis makes him look like Mother Teresa. He’s gritty, bloody, doesn’t give a s**t and is the def­i­ni­tion of ‘love to hate’.

2012-13

A bru­tal teen drama. Mindy Mccready, AKA Hit-girl, is the best thing about the Kick-ass films and comics, and Chloë Grace Moretz is so syn­ony­mous with the diminu­tive badass it’s hard to imag­ine any­one re­plac­ing her.

BUY GREEN STUFF

“When you go into the store, ask for the cli­mate-friendly al­ter­na­tives. This sends a sig­nal to busi­nesses that the mar­ket for these al­ter­na­tive prod­ucts is grow­ing. We’re al­ready see­ing many busi­nesses ad­ver­tis­ing that they’re greener than the com­pe­ti­tion. Help the oth­ers reach the tip­ping point.”

Alex Flood cin­e­mas now is in A fast-paced story that fol­lows a group of vil­lains as they em­bark on one last heist. Imag­ine Lock, Stock And Two Smok­ing Bar­rels spliced with (a bet­ter) Sui­cide Squad, all rolled into an hour-long TV for­mat. Ace. Claire Lim

Chance the Rap­per

Was per­son­ally thanked by Barack Obama dur­ing his free sur­prise show in their shared home­town of Chicago. Big.

Dead­mau5

Had a wed­ding. Used loads of flame-throw­ers. The very op­po­site of low-key.

a$ap Rocky

Was ac­ci­den­tally called What­sapp Ricky by Liam Gal­lagher. LOL.

Love­film

Will cease trad­ing in Oc­to­ber. Sad news for Royal Mail film fans.
