Sneak Peek: The Secret Service

Published on October 19th, 2011

Courtesy of CBR.This week Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons announced their new project, The Secret Service. No story details were released at this time but ever the consummate salesman Millar promised an extensive interview and preview in the November issue of his magazine, Clint. As is his standard M.O. Millar is auctioning off the right to name the super villain of the book to raise money for charity. This time it is for his primary school St Bartholomew’s Primary School Pantomime Fund.

Matthew Vaughn has already purchased the film rights so this is a great chance to see your name on the big screen. Then again your name would be associated with whatever horrific acts said super villain will perpetrate, consider yourself warned. That said I like that Millar does this and I am sure the charities appreciate it as well. You can bid on the auction HERE. While Millar can be hit or  miss with his creator owned projects Dave Gibbons involvement definitely has me intrigued. Stay tuned as we will keep you up to date as more information becomes available. The Secret Service will launch February 2012.
