    According to Millar on his forum, Jan 27 for the comic, Feb 17 for the hardcover.

    Such a fucking joke. I'll never buy single issues of a mini again when it's put out by that asshole.

    yes.... I'll buy a trade in deep discount form on Amazon, but I'm not going to support individual issues if he can't get this stuff out even close to a reasonable time frame.

    I mean it's one thing if a couple issues are delayed a couple weeks, but this has been months upon months for every issue.

    is he writing a movie or a comic?

    More like he was trying to make it into a movie. He's been heading that way for some time. Hell, he even said he tries to write comics that can be made into a movie. If i remember correctly a Newsarama interview with him he said he had a new book that had been optioned as a movie before it was even made :hsugh:

    he's not writing the movie, but he is involved with it. and the film rights were purchased before issue 1 was even released.

    i'm pretty sure the books have been finished for quite some time. issue 1 was out on april 08, and the movie was already supposedly in script stage in may 08. filming began late 08, early 09.

    but the point has already been made here, he's lining the hardcover up with the release of the movie.

    it's not that the dude hates his fans, he just knows how to market shit. he's going to sell truckloads of that trade/hc.

    Let me try to clarify my statement a bit. I don't knock the guy for trying to make money, good for him. I'm just stating I'm not going to support any of his individual issues anymore. It's pointless to do so. I'll wait for the trade and buy that.

    Well, at least it's more reliable than Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk and the Ultimates (Didn't buy them them the first time around, but found them in a lot on eBay for cheap- great story, can't believe I didn't buy it when it came out but glad because the long wait would have pissed me off).

    He's not even making that much. But credit where credit is due, the guy unlike a lot of people in comics knows how to play Hollywood.

    Well, what kind of money is he making? I'd imagine that Hollywood would pay him at least something close to life changing money being that he's the creator.
