After their run on Ultimate Avengers 2 finishes, Millar and Yu will be launching a new creator owned book. I'm assuming it'll be through Marvel's Icon imprint.

Some...er, promotional stuff here. (http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=26457)

DC wouldn't give Millar Superman so he's making his own?

I bet it's very patronizing and unironic.

When will Marvel stop financing Millar's creator owned endeavors?

Good question. I was thinking the same thing myself.

When they stop being the highest selling comics since X-Men #1.

(or whatever)

Doesn't matter to Marvel, they make next to nothing on these books and have little to no rights to monetize the books.

If nothing else it gives Marvel Comics attention and keeps the creators the they employ (Millar) happy.

Why let him take it to Image or Dark Horse or IDW when Marvel can keep him in their house and draw a little more outside attention to themselves.

I can't wait for this. Kick-Ass was pretty good, and I loved Old Man Logan, Wanted, and Ultimates One and Two.

I hope Nemesis will wrap up before this starts shipping. I noticed while flipping through the new Previews that Nemesis is only four issues.

Leinil Yu is a reasonably fast artist. We could end up getting the final issue of Superior the same day as issue 4 of Nemesis. :laugh:

Reasonably fast?

That's why it took 2+ years for them to finish Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine :p

While I do know this (hence the :p), if you follow Yu on Deviant Art, he's always criticizing himself for being slow. So at least by his own admission, he doesn't feel he's fast.

I just hope they hire an inker.
Yu's work is always better when inked.

100% Damon Lindelof (LOST co-creator). He was too busy with TV stuff. Yu has had several timely runs (New Avengers) and he churned out Secret Invasion quickly considering all the crazy stuff he had to draw for that series. I think it might have had maybe one hiccup or two during shipping, but not much.
