Mark Millar’s next comic, Prodigy, has a new triptych cover for its first issue, drawn by series artist Rafael Albuquerque. You can check out all three parts below.
As sharp-eyed Millarworld fans might notice, the covers feature characters from past Millar comics currently being developed into shows by Netflix, including Empress, Jupiter’s Legacy, Huck, and more. Prodigy itself has a first issue due out Dec. 5. It’s the second original comic Millar has launched since making his major deal with Netflix last year.
Prodigy is the story of Edison Crane, who is the smartest man in the world, a preternaturally successful businessman, and the guy the world’s governments call when they have problems that need fixing. This book follows The Magic Order, Millar’s first new Netflix comic, on which he is collaborating with artist Olivier Coipel. The fifth and penultimate issue of that book is also due on Dec. 5.
For those keeping track, the Millar-Netflix deal will soon see many of Millar’s past comics adapted into Netflix shows, the first round of which you can learn more about here.
The full press release from Image is below:
Image Comics is pleased to exclusively reveal a triptych cover for the forthcoming PRODIGY comic book by Mark Millar (KINGSMAN, THE MAGIC ORDER, Civil War) and illustrated by Rafael Albuquerque (Batman, American Vampire). The series will launch this December from Image Comics and is the latest addition to the Netflix Millarworld franchises shepherded by Mark and his wife Lucy.
In PRODIGY, Edison Crane’s not content being the world’s smartest man and most successful businessman—his brilliant mind needs to be constantly challenged. He’s a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, genius composer, Olympic athlete, an expert in the occult, and international governments call on him to fix problems they just can’t handle. Interior preview pages were exclusively revealed at Deadline yesterday.
PRODIGY #1 will be available on Wednesday, December 5th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, November 12th. There will be no second printings, and the item will be fully returnable to comic shop retailers.
