    Netflix and comic books???

    http://ew.com/tv/2017/11/07/mark-mil...netflix-comic/

    Thoughts? Will this take off and be as successful as DC and Marvel, or will it be another Crossgen?

    I think it would be awesome if my Netflix subscription also gave me access to comic books in addition to movies and TV shows.

    Who knows.

    Millar is a mixed bag. He pens a lot of rubbish (Ultimates, Civil War) and ekes out some rare gems (Starlight). That said, his creator owned comics have gone on to fairly regular box office transition success; so he's a boon to collaborators.

    Wait and see?

    No one predicted what happened to Crossgen. No one can predict what will happen here.

    I hope it is a success.

    I liked Ultimates. And it arguably forms a significant building block of the MCU (not even counting Sam Jackson). It's not subtle but it's entertaining, and there's nothing wrong with entertainment.

    Entertaining.

    If you've never read a comic book in your life.

    That was my beef with the premise. It's a fantastic starter comic, and the ending is worth the slog; but being a funnybook lifer - there is no surprise when in your Watchmen fanfic starring the Avengers, treating Bruce Banner poorly ends badly for everybody involved.

    The nice thing about the movies is they take from a wide variety of comic sources. So, yes - there are elements of Ultimates in some of the MCU; but it's not the entirety.
