Mark Millar to guest-edit Wizard‘s relaunch issue

Wizard magazine will relaunch in July with an issue guest-edited by writer Mark Millar.

Details are sparse; the press release is little more than a headline — “WANTED AND KICK-ASS WRITER MARK MILLAR GUEST EDITS OUR BEST ISSUE EVER!” — a quote, and mini-biographies for Millar and Wizard Entertainment CEO Gareb Shamus. So you’ll have to imagine for yourself what an issue of Wizard might look like under Millar’s guidance.

“This issue will be nothing less than spectacular,” Millar said in the oh-so-brief release. “Your brain will explode when you see what I have in store.”

The writer was equally, if perhaps uncharacteristically, tight-lipped on his message board, saying, “Bet you never saw THIS one coming …”

The Millar-edited Issue 228 will arrive in stores on June 30.

“This issue will be nothing less than spectacular,” Millar said in the oh-so-brief release. “Your brain will explode when you see what I have in store.”

Complete crap; he’s doing ONE issue – that gives him the leeway to blow his entire load in one sitting rather than dole it out like an actual editor might.

Not saying it won’t be awesome, but don’t think for a minute he could keep it up month after month. One issue and he’ll be spent.

Good to hear its getting relaunched,

Hopefully, they take a more serious take on the comic book scene and its fans.

I wonder if he gave up writing X-Men 4 to do this. hmmmmm.

Though, I haven’t read a Wizard in ages. How is it? still worth getting, besides the price guide?

@ Weakly Roll: Not even worth getting for the price guide.
