The revamp of the month is Marvel Comics' 15-Love, which features a new spin on Millie "the model" Collins.
|Millie "the model" Collins|
The three-issue series has been in development (or, more accurately, languishing in a filing cabinet) since 2003.
Will 15-Love be worth the wait? Has anyone actually been waiting?
I'm a far cry from the target demographic, so I can't really speak to the appeal of the concept. But I'll check out 15-Love, if only because of its golden age roots.
