LONDON, January 27, 2011 - Following the massive success of chart-topping graphic novel
Kick-Ass, writer Mark Millar returns with his latest outrageous,
action-packed opus, Nemesis [Titan Books, 9th Feb 2011, GBP14.99].

Co-Creator Steve McNiven topped the charts with Wolverine: Old
Man Logan and Marvel's Civil War, the highest-selling comic-book series of
the last ten years. Now, he re-teams with Millar for a sales-bursting
headline-grabbing reversal of our expectations of the superhero genre.

After the triumph of major motion picture adaptations of
Wanted (starring James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie) and Kick-Ass (directed by
Matthew Vaughn and starring Nicholas Cage, Aaron Johnson and Chloë Moretz)
Nemesis was picked up by Twentieth Century Fox before the first issue hit the
stand, and is currently in development for a film adaptation directed by the
legendary director Tony Scott ('Top Gun', 'Man on Fire'). Scott recently
described McNiven's art on Nemesis as "among the best I've ever seen in
comic-book form."

CIVIL WAR? Nothing. KICK-ASS? A warm-up. What if the smartest,
toughest costumed bad-ass in the world was totally evil? Meet Nemesis. He's
systematically been destroying the lives of every police chief in Asia, and
he's now set his sights on Washington, DC. Between you and me, the police
don't have a chance. Do not miss the book that EVERYONE will be talking

                 visually stunning thing" - Comics Alliance

              "Exciting, deliberate and macabre" - Broken Frontier

                   "This is Batman meets the Game" - Newsarama

4, Ultimate Secret, New Avengers and Civil War. Nemesis is his 3rd team-up
