‘Empress’ Movie in the Works Based on Millar/Immonen Comic
Mark Millar’s comic books have inspired some mixed reactions among fans and critics, but the author’s works have also inspired some entertaining films, including last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Millar has a handful of projects in development based on his books, and you can add another to the pile, as his fantasy series Empress, with artist Stuart Immonen, is the latest set to make the jump from page to screen.

Stuart Immonen is an artist’s artist. In fact, that’s probably not going far enough. It’s probably more accurate to say that he’s an artist’s artist’s artist. That’s not easy to say, but it’s not easy to have a career like Stuart Immonen, so he’s earned it. With the arrival of the fantasy/science-fiction epic in the making Empress, his new creator-owned book with writer Mark Millar, there’s no better time to take a look back at his incredible body of work with a collection of some of his best covers and splash-pages.

Mark Millar has been the lynch-pin of Marvel’s creator owned imprint Icon for the past several years, way back to the first volume of Kick-Ass in 2008. Since then, at Icon and beyond, he’s generated a wave of new independent comics with A-List collaborators such as Steve McNiven, Frank Quitely and Sean Gordon Murphy, and many of those books have been adapted to films. Empress continues Millar’s trend of superstar collaborators as he teams with Stuart Immonen (plus inker Wade von Grawbadger and colorist Ive Svorcina) to tell a sprawling sci-fi story about an enslaved intergalactic queen on the run from her tyrannical husband, with her three children in tow.
