Comics by two of the UK ’s
most outspoken TV personalities and burgeoning writing talents – Jonathan Ross and stand-up comedian Frankie Boyle –
will feature in CLiNT Magazine, an exciting new joint venture between Kick Ass creator Mark Millar and Titan Magazines. Millar’s
sequel to his cult comic and smash hit movie will also feature in the
monthly title to form a stunning line-up of stories.
is The Eagle for the 21st Century,” declares Millar, whose
genre-busting Kick-Ass scooped the number one movie spot
and whose previous work includes Wanted, starring
Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. “I’ve worked on everything from Spider-Man comics to the Iron Man movie for Marvel in New York , but what really excites me is the gap I
see in the UK
market at the moment. There are absolutely no comic-books aimed at
16-30 year old guys and I think CLiNT has potential to make an enormous
impact, bringing a new type of magazine to a new generation.
want this to be edgy and irreverent, the kind of thing guys will be
passing around lunch-halls and common rooms, and there’s nobody I’d
rather have creating new characters for CLiNT than Jonathan and Frankie.
They’re both brilliant writers and will surprise a lot of people with
this stuff. The last thing you’d expect from Jonathan, for example, is a
vampire strip, but he pulls it off amazingly. People are going to love
also launching his sequel to the hit Kick-Ass movie in
the first issue of the comic. “Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall” has been
scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release, but fans of
the first movie can find out what happens two years in advance by
picking up CLiNT.
100-page magazine will be packed with interviews and features from
movies, games and television as well as four serialized comic-strips.
The biggest names in entertainment will be featured every month and some
will even be sticking around to write sci-fi, humour or horror stories
after they’ve been interviewed and quizzed.
can’t say who else is involved at this stage,” says Millar. “Jonathan,
Frankie and I will have our stories serialized over the first six
months, but we have the most insane line-up of creators ready to come in
and join us. You’d be amazed how many people who work in film and
television want to be comic-book writers. It’s very exciting and we
think we’re creating something potentially enormous here.”
