Netflix is delving deeper into the comic book world with its first acquisition, comic book publisher Millarworld. In a sense, Netflix is using this as a jumping point into the comic book arena, where the likes of DC and Marvel have made billions capitalizing on their superheroes.

Once an industry outsider, Netflix has emerged as one of the TV industry's most powerful forces and is devoting more attention to movies as rival media companies increasingly withhold their own content because the streaming service's popularity threatens their TV networks. His 2002 comic book "The Ultimates" was named best comic book of the decade by Time's and was described by "Avengers" screenwriter Zak Penn as the blueprint for the Marvel cinematic universe.

The terms of the deal haven't yet been disclosed, but presumably Millar and his wife, Lucy Millar (who co-runs Millarworld), will be involved in production. "Netflix is the future and we couldn't be more thrilled to sell the business to them and buckle up for all the unbelievable movies and television shows we plan to do together", he said.
