1990s

Millar was inspired to become a comic writer after meeting Alan Moore at a signing session at AKA Books and Comics when he was a teenager in the mid 1980s. However it wasn't until experiencing financial problems after his parents died that he decided to drop out of university and take up writing professionally.

His first job as a professional comic book writer was with Trident Comics in 1990, writing Saviour with Daniel Vallely providing art. Saviour proved to be one of Trident Comics' most popular titles.

During the early 1990s, Millar worked on titles such as 2000 AD, Sonic the Comic and Crisis. In 1993, Millar, Grant Morrison and John Smith created a controversial eight-week run on 2000 AD called The Summer Offensive.

Millar's British work brought him to the attention of DC Comics, and in 1994 he started working on his first American comic, Swamp Thing. The first four issues of Millar's run were co-written by Grant Morrison allowing Millar to settle into the title. Although his work brought some critical acclaim to the ailing title, the book's sales were still low enough to warrant cancellation by the publisher. From there, Millar spent time working on various DC titles, often co-writing with or under the patronage of Morrison (as in the cases of his work on JLA, The Flash and Aztek: The Ultimate Man), and working on unsuccessful pitches for the publisher. During this time, he was publicly talking about potentially abandoning comics and had taken to mentioning a horror series he was writing for Channel 4 called Sikeside.[1] Sikeside was cancelled in pre-production and has recently been optioned by Crab-Apple Films for a planned theatrical release.

2000 onwards

In 2000, Millar received his big break by replacing Warren Ellis on The Authority for DC's Wildstorm imprint. Keeping the so-called "widescreen" aspects of Ellis's title, Millar and artist Frank Quitely added a more polemic style to the story, increasing sales and gathering many awards at home and abroad.

The title was a success for Millar and Wildstorm but suffered from self-censorship from DC, which caused friction between Millar and Warner Bros, especially DC publisher Paul Levitz. After the events of 9/11, DC became more sensitive to violence and scenes of destruction in titles such as The Authority. With shipping delays and artwork alterations, Millar became increasingly frustrated by DC's objections to his over-the-top style and story content on the title. As a result of this and receiving lucrative work from DC's main competitor Marvel Comics, he announced his resignation from DC in 2001. His acclaimed Superman: Red Son story was printed after his departure, and Millar has repeatedly stated his desire to recreate the Superman character both in comic-books and on the big screen. During his sabbatical in late 2005, he mended his fences with Levitz & DC Comics and many readers now hope Millar will one day return to the character.[2] Paul Levitz (born 21 October 1956) is an American comic book writer, editor and executive. ...

During 2001 Millar launched Ultimate X-Men for Marvel Comics' Ultimate Marvel. This imprint was created to make popular Marvel characters more accessible to new readers by rebooting them, erasing their often decades-long histories and starting from scratch. The line was an enormous success, further consolidating Millar's position and quickly making him a major player at Marvel Entertainment. The writer further expanded the Ultimate line in 2002 with The Ultimates, the Ultimate version of Marvel's The Avengers title. This book proved even more successful than Ultimate X-Men outselling it from the very first issue and providing the basis of two best-selling animated adventures.

After 33 issues, Millar left Ultimate X-Men and wrote the number one hit title Marvel Knights Spider-Man in 2004, He also co-wrote the first six issues of Ultimate Fantastic Four with Brian Michael Bendis. After the arcs by Warren Ellis and Mike Carey, Millar returned to Ultimate Fantastic Four for a 12-issue run throughout 2005-2006 and returned the title to the top of the charts, creating the lucrative "Marvel Zombies" spin-off title in his first and final storylines.

In a 2005 interview with BBC Radio Scotland, Millar discussed his "dream project," teaming up with top science fiction and comic book writers to create a 21st century version of Karl Marx's book Das Kapital, with each writer tackling a different aspect of modern life.

Millarworld

In 2004 Millar launched a creator-owned line called Millarworld that was published simultaneously by four different, competing comic book companies. One book, The Unfunnies, published by Avatar Comics was finally completed as of November 2007. Wanted, published by Top Cow, with artist J.G. Jones has just finished shooting as a 100 million dollar motion picture. Chosen, published by Dark Horse, was described by Millar as a sequel to the Bible and has been optioned by Sony Pictures. A fourth planned Millarworld title, Run, to be released through Image Central with slated artist Ashley Wood, was never released. The writer has announced that Kick-Ass published by Marvel's Icon imprint will replace the title.

As of 2005, joker Millar had gained mainstream attention for a variety of over-the-top antics including a lost bet for US$5,000 with Harry Knowles regarding the casting of the lead actor in the next Superman movie (which Millar laughs was a huge publicity stunt). He also once wrote an article detailing the fictional pre-production struggles of The Orson Welles Batman Hoax, which many believed, for a time, to be real and resulted in a massive online response. Millar also claimed that rapper Eminem begged to take the lead role in the movie version of Wanted. That resulted in a strong rebuke from Eminem's management, who immediately denied the story.[7] The claim was also denied by Universal Pictures, the production company for the project, and appears to have been another publicity stunt to stir up controversy (no doubt helping in the huge sales for his book). The movie, which will feature Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman, has just finished production and was promoted from an Easter to a big Summer after much excitement from Universal's top brass.

Millar announced 1st November 2005 he would be taking a six-month sabbatical from comics work to rest up after taking ill while in America, although he continued to work in a reduced capacity during this period, working on Ultimate Fantastic Four and Civil War. Future plans include a second set of titles under the Millarworld banner, and "1985", which he has claimed will be "...enormous. This is Marvel's [Chronicles of] Narnia". A sabbatical year is a prolonged hiatus, typically one year, in the career of an otherwise successful individual taken in order to fulfill some dream, e. ...


The next Millarworld title, to be published by Image Comics, will be War Heroes, with art by Tony Harris.

Mark Millar (270 words)
Millar got his professional start in comics in the late 80s and early 90s in the pages of venerable British comic anthology 2000 AD, and American independent comic The Savior.
Millar subsequently made his mark in the early to mid 90s at DC Comics with runs on titles such as Swamp Thing and The Flash, both alone and in collaboration with Grant Morrison.
Millar continued this brand of success as one of the primary architects of Marvel's Ultimate line with his work on The Ultimates and Ultimate X-Men presenting a compelling and hard-edged look at Marvel's popular stable of heroes.
