  4. Actually, they did reprint Skrull Kill Krew, with Millar and Morrison’s names in equal prominence.

  5. [...] Morrison and Mark Millar, though you’d never know that from the cover. David, bless his heart, has already blogged about this, too. I haven’t read this in a decade, but I remember it as a [...]
