DC’s Collected Editions Dep’t Says: Screw You, Mark Millar!

Filed under: Blurbs — David Uzumeri @ 2:07 pm

So, I’m browsing through Midtown’s posted cover images because I’m a nerd for trade dress when I come across this:

JUSTICE LEAGUE presents AZTEK by GRANT MORRISON (with mark millar)

JLA presents AZTEK by GRANT MORRISON (with mark millar)

I understand that Grant Morrison’s the company man and Mark Millar isn’t at this point, but Aztek was a full creative partnership between the two, and I highly doubt that Marvel would minimize Morrison’s name if they were reprinting Skrull Kill Krew. This is about on par with having GREG RUCKA in big letters on the upcoming Gotham Central hardcovers with a little “ed brubaker” at the bottom. Ow, guys.

  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 […]
