Mark Millar said: “I was watching the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory recently with my kids and remembered how much I wanted to see something like that in real life. A big global treasure hunt.
“The random nature of this is what’s going to make it a lot of fun and I love the idea of firing a starting pistol and every reader who recognises the landmark making a break for it to be first there,” he said. “They’re all going to be accessible, but for some you’re going to need a shovel, for others you’re going to need waders or, at the very least, wellies. Others you’re going to have to climb. It’s going to be great.”

⦁ In the West end stretch of this river city, where the dogs are friendly and the women pretty, there’s a hidey hole for like-minded folk who like to drink and laugh and smoke….
⦁ If you weren’t distracted by all its dogs, spend a penny with Calvin and Hobbs. The outside arches are good for people-spotting [but prepare for plenty midgie-swatting.]
⦁ It can be ______ trouble, ______ sh** or ______ debt. It’s like an old Sum 41 song if you’ve not guessed it yet.
⦁ At a Lee and Nancy song, on a street where royalty overlooks the city, awaits a place to whet your whistle. Where gardens are Darling, and the fabric is opulent, Phaedra is my name.
⦁ The infamous tram, made famous by the Bedroom Philosopher will take you there – the booty can be found in a pot of Gold.
Hamilton, New Zealand:
⦁ It’s just a jump to the left
⦁ Let’s play the game. In middletown next to the fortune market
⦁ Find the treasure after this riddle, “nfdgoirrsua csd4, bj. ljdrlam dnaetnri sul. o1”
⦁ Those spaces and marks do not walk, come after sundown or they will not talk
⦁ Tell the gatekeeper “Olly Olly Oxen Free”, and search behind Royker’s body
⦁ Under the Hula Girl on the street named after the Augustinian friary nearby, you’ll find it in a house in the arms of the Misfits Doyle and Jerry
⦁ Crossing their tools, this proud French couple look over Mother Russia. You will find the treasure beneath sickle and hammer.
⦁ In the Chicago suburbs, where Mark has been before. Just a year ago (and a few days more).
Near a store that sells his goods, named after one of America’s favorite foods.
Look for somewhere you’d take a seat, finding the treasure will be pretty sweet.
⦁ The tube is a stop on the central line, famous for boxing once upon a time.
⦁ Across from The Salmon you’ll find a park, pick up the treasure before it gets dark.
Los Angeles, US
⦁ Second floor of a public building that you can borrow printed material by Mark Millar for free! You will find the treasure on the left side of the ‘bank vault’. If you need help ask the gate keeper Jeffrey!
⦁ What’s cooking in the kitchen?
The Specials sent a message.
Dive under the neon,
Cross the sawdust floor.
Pull the yellow jacket
and all will be swine, uh, fine.
