Following the huge success of their partnership with Marvel, Netflix is looking to expand its footprint in the world of comics. The streaming giant has purchased the comic book production company, Millaworld. With this deal, Netflix now owns the rights of comic book staples such as Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Old Man Logan.
Netflix is looking to work hand-in-hand with the owner and operator of Millarworld, Mark Millar. The Chief Content Officer of Netflix, Ted Sarandos, spoke on this partnership with Millarword, and in particular, Millar himself, stating that the comic book company president is,
“as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee (creator of many Marvel characters currently airing on Netflix’s platform).
