Over at Newsrama, Scottish writer Mark Millar (The Authority, The Ultimates) says Hollywood is the latest threat to comic books.
This really struck me a few days ago when I requested an artist and discovered he’d be out of commission for the next eighteen months because he’d just landed a gig on a huge sci-fi movie. Eighteen months is a long time for a comics artist to be gone and this guy is so good, so popular, that I know he’ll have another three movie gigs waiting for him when his current commitment is done. And he’s not alone ... Likewise, every writer I know has a movie deal at the moment.
