After yesterday's announcement of Jupiter's Children, Mark Millar has revealed the continuations of some more familiar names, in Hit-Girl and Nemesis 2.
Mark Millar is on an announcement roll! Yesterday he previewed his new project with Frank Quitely, Jupiter's Children, and today he announced dates and plots for some more stuff!
First up in May comes Hit-Girl, a spin-off from Kick-Ass which will follow the foul-mouthed pre-teen assassin in her own adventures. Set in between Kick-Ass and the currently-running sequel, the story will follow what happens when Kick-Ass breaks his hand and can't fight crime so Hit-Girl fills in. The series will also follow Red Mist's journey towards becoming the villain we know him as today. Millar promises the series will be a lot lighter than Kick-Ass 2. But then there's lots of leeway there. Artwork will of course come from John Romita Jnr.
And then in September comes Nemesis 2, which will continue the story of bored rich people getting their kicks by becoming super-villains. The cover shows a Nemesis no longer in white, but in blood-red. Artwork will be from Steve McNiven and Millar revealed that a Nemesis 3 is also planned to round out the series.
