Chair: Sandy Kennedy

In this virtual session, Sandy Kennedy interviews Mark Millar, founder of Millarworld, the comic book publishing powerhouse and the legendary creator of such iconic characters and stories as Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Old Man Logan, and one of the most important voices in comics.

Having recently sold Millarworld to Netflix, Mark is now president of his own division of the streaming giant and continues to create comics, TV series, and movies for the streaming service.
