Mark Millar and Greg Capullo Unveil New Comic Series ‘Reborn’
Without a doubt, one of the greatest comic series of the New 52 was Snyder and Capullo's Batman. The duo remained the creative team behind the Caped Crusader from the New 52's inception until the end of the era was reached with DC Universe: Rebirth. With their combined talents, Snyder and Capullo were the Batman dream team, and many fans were crushed to find out that the two would be splitting up. The reason? Capullo was given the chance to work on a high profile project written by the famed Mark Millar.

Millar is perhaps most famous for penning Marvel's Civil War, but he's recently garnered quite a bit of success writing independent books that now all seem to have movie deals before they even hit shelves. For instance, he's the guy behind Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kickass, and Wanted. His books Chrononauts, Huck, and Empress (who's third issue just hit shelves yesterday) also already have movie deals, as do a handful of his other projects, such as American Jesus and Jupiter's Legacy.  

Capullo and Millar have been teasing this new series on their twitter accounts for what seems like forever now, but this week, the title and synopsis of the new series was finally released. The book is called Reborn and will follow the adventure of an old lady who has been reborn in the afterlife as a twenty-five year old adventurer with a sword and a gun. She reunites with loved ones long gone, but can't find her late husband, who she sets out to find.

Of course, comic fans won't want to miss Reborn, which hits shelves in October. Huck, which just finished up, was an extremely fun and heartwarming story, and so far, Empress seems to be just as enchanting, if not more so. Millar's writing hasn't decreased in quality one bit, and it certainly helps that he basically gets to choose whatever superstar comics artists he wants to bring his tales to life on the page. Capullo is without doubt one of the best in the industry, and his partnership could result in one of the best Millarworld creative teams as of yet.

Capullo has already said that he'll rejoin his pal Scott Snyder again after he's done working with Millar, so it'll be super fun to see what the DC dream team do next. Until then, Reborn promises to be an exciting ride (the story sounds like the type Millar does best - read Starlight for proof), and Snyder is going to begin All-Star Batman with his own team of superstar artists in August. These incredible projects should very well be enough to hold fans over until Snyder and Capullo come together once again for some more spectacular DC universe storytelling.
