CLiNT #1

Long-time readers will know that I have little love for Mark Millar. He dragged himself up to being a fairly strong writer circa 1999-2000, but since then it's been all empty bluster and superficial shock tactics, as he swaggers around the comics world like some kind of rock star, rather than a ginger bloke from Coatbridge. On the other hand, this swagger brings with it a rampant enthusiasm for comics, and one which appears utterly genuine, even if some of the things he actually says on the subject are rather less so. If someone is going to try to rejuvenate the moribund boys' comics anthology, then it should be someone with this almost berserker level of energy; much as I tend to dislike his comics, I can't think of many better personalities to have as figurehead for a project such as CLiNT.
