Although it’s been known for years that Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons were teaming on a comic for Image, the name and art were still unannounced — until just now. It’s called THE SECRET SERVICE and will presumably revolve around doctors who quietly perform hair transplants…or something like that.
It is only one of several books that denote a renewed energy on Millar’s part for his Millarworld books, CBR reports:
Of course, “The Secret Service” isn’t the only book on tap from Millar’s Millarworld brand of creator-owned comics. “Our 2012 line-up includes ‘Kick-Ass 2’ with John Romita, ‘Supercrooks’ with Leinil Yu, ‘The Secret Service’ with Dave Gibbons, ‘Nemesis 2’ with Steve McNiven and a massive brand new superhero epic by Frank Quitely,” Millar reminded. “We’ll be previewing all these books in a massive CBR piece in January as I go full-time in Millarworld. But I don’t think there’s a company out there with as high a concentration of A-list artists as our plans for next year. It’s very exciting.”
