Last year, Batman artist Greg Capullo announced he’d be leaving the series to work on a new project with Kick-Ass co-creator Mark Millar.  Yesterday, the star duo revealed the fruits of their labor.

Reborn is a six-issue limited series that will begin this October.  It follows 80-year old Bonnie Black, who ends up in a fantasy world after her death.

The official synopsis reads as follows:

“It’s not Heaven. It’s not Hell. It’s as real and hard as where we live now, but filled with the most amazing fantasy landscapes, jaw-dropping creatures and a battle raging between good and evil. The people she loved in this world — her father and her childhood dog — but oddly, not her husband who had passed over 14 years before. So she sets out to find him. She realizes that she has been reborn as a 25 year-old woman with a sword in her hand and gun on her hip.”

Like most properties co-created by Millar, Reborn was made with the big screen in mind.  He told Deadline that he already has a producer in mind for the potential film adaptation. “It must be someone who will understand the story and is passionate about bringing our vision to the screen.”

Reborn will be published through Millarworld, as has become the standard for his creator owned works.  However, it is not yet known whether they will be working with a publisher such as Dark Horse or Image to distribute the series; they have worked with both companies in the past.

  1. So it’s Machine Gun What Dreams May Come to Lord of the Rings. Got it. Still not buying it since it’s just a movie pitch.
