Mark Millar Goes On Record In Support of Moustached Heroes
It's no surprise to the staff here at the Isotope that soon after outlawing moustaches among the elite of Egyptian society in 1800 BC, the Pharaoh Teqikencola saw his empire begin to crumble. Because while fashions may come and fashions may go the glory of the moustache has stood the test of time, and it's power is unmistakable.
Throughout time, moustached faced heroes of both fact and fiction have found themselves hoisted on the pedestal of historical greatness and even those who have championed a bare lip esthetic have turned to the power of the moustache in their time of need. And we're not talking scraggly faced hippies here, whose fear of the razor is well documented... we're talking about the proud wearers of the mighty moustachio. With true heroes like Abraham Lincoln (who grew one while writing the Gettysburg Address which is no doubt why children are still reading it in schools today), The Tick, and even Isotope Proprietor James Sime preaching the gospel of the moustache, it was only a matter of time before one of the industry's top creators decided to make a stand.
And what a stand it was! Civil War and Ultimates writer Mark Millar goes on record in support of comic heroes with moustaches, and the industry is forever rocked by the impact.
"As much as I hate BKV and everything he believes in, I support superheroes with moustaches and am really looking forward to this book." - Mark Millar re: The upcoming Dr. Strange series by RE: Brian K. Vaughan & Marcos Martin
A hearty round of Isotope applause out to Mark Millar for telling it like it is! As the groundswell of moustached heroes support grows in the wake of Millar's announcement, we suggest you bare-faced gentlemen out there choose a style, put some Gogol Bordello on the sound system, and get growing!
