News of the new spy graphic novel comes Deadline learned that Millarworld’s The Magic Order series is in the works at Netflix. In June Deadline also exclusively learned that Netflix ordered a live-action series adaptation of Millar’s Supercrooks shortly after Netflix released the Jupiter’s Legacy cast.
Millar provided the following statement: “We’ve been quietly working on this for a couple of years in-house and we’re all buzzing about it. The spy world was very good to us with Kingsman and a return to the genre had to be something special. This is that project. I love stories about an old gun-fighter back for one last job and this is the Granddaddy of them all. It’s so incredibly violent and emotional, but really fun too. I can’t wait for people to see it and wanted to share a couple of the images we’ve been putting together for the comic-book side of the project. These aren’t from the artist we later chose for the book, but they’re so good we wanted you to see them. The first is by the amazing Ozgur Yildirim, whom I’m an enormous fan of, and the second is by Mark Chiarello, who’s an absolute genius. Mark was DC’s art director until very recently and I love this old school spy paperback vibe he’s brought to this. We’re really, really excited about this and will release the name of the stellar comic-book artist we’ve hired a little down the line.”
