The Ten Best Mark Millar Comics of All Time

How many comic scribes get their own day? Okay, sure, Millar Day was “founded” by Image Comics to commemorate the release this Wednesday of Jupiter’s Legacy Vol. 2 #1, the return of artist Frank Quitely to the book’s main narrative following an interstitial story drawn by Wilfredo Torres and Chris Sprouse. Still, it’s irrefutable that Mark Millar is one of the biggest, most influential—and most divisive—writers working in the medium today.

From character-defining runs at the Big Two of Marvel and DC to creator-owned series known for artist-friendly financial splits and near-instantaneous movie options, Millar has created an empire. Some may be repulsed by Millar’s shock tactics, but it’s undeniable that he still knows how to hit at the heartstrings when a story calls for it. To celebrate Millar Day, Paste compiled its list of the best Mark Millar comics of all time. There are sure to be controversial omissions—sorry, Kick-Ass—but these ten storylines stand tall among an enviable bibliography, and are worth revisiting as he launches his latest saga.
