Mark Millar has announced his departure from Marvel Comics' titles to focus on his Millarworld creations.

The Superior writer will end his ongoing work on the publisher's comics and dedicate his time to his creator-owned projects.

"Well, I just finished the dialogue on my last ever script for Marvel," Millar wrote on Twitter. "It was a lot of fun, but I'm full-time on Millarworld as of today.

"Huge thanks to all the guys I worked with on Ultimates 1&2, Civil War, Old Man Logan, Enemy of the State, Ultimate X-Men, 1985, etc, etc. It's been an amazing experience and I'm stealing all the best ones to work with my on creator-owned anyway."

Millar continued: "In the next 12 months - Kick-Ass 2, Nemesis 2, Supercrooks, Superior, the Dave Gibbons project, the Frank Quitely project and Hit-Girl!

"I'm going to miss the lads, the best editorial team in the biz, but there comes a time when every boy needs to start his OWN media empire!"

Millar was a key creator for Marvel, heading its major 'Civil War' event, before reducing his involvement following the success of his popular Kick-Ass miniseries, published through the publisher's creator-owned imprint Icon.

Many of his forthcoming projects were announced at Kapow! Comic Con, which Millar himself organised in April.
