Ever since Netflix acquired Millarworld, the comic book line started by Mark Millar, back in 2017 fans have eagerly been anticipating how the streaming giant will be adapting Millar’s comics into film and television. The first such series adaptation Jupiter’s Legacy, based on the eponymous comic by Millar and artist Frank Quitely, arrives on Netflix May 7. It’s no surprise then that Millar is revisiting the world of Jupiter’s Legacy in a new 12-issue series entitled Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem this June with artist Tommy Lee Edwards. Requiem serves as a conclusion to the intergenerational superhero tale Millar began almost a decade ago.
Check out the main Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem #1 cover by Edwards as well as the alternate cover by Frank Quitely and a preview of interior art below. Look for Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem#1 to arrive in comic shops on Wednesday, June 16th, 2021.
The next chapter in 2021’s Netflix global phenomenon begins with Mark Millar’s return to Jupiter’s Legacy for a sequel miniseries titled, Requiem. This new chapter in the critically acclaimed Jupiter’s Legacy universe will pick up story threads from the Netflix adaptation (streaming on May 7) and will hit shelves from Image Comics this June.
In Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem, Chloe and Hutch have gotten married and had more children. The superheroes are working in harmony with humanity and creating a perfect world. But all is not well in the Garden of Eden as the Sampson family gets ripped apart and the secrets of the Netflix show’s mysterious island begin to be revealed.
“When I started Jupiter’s Legacy in 2012 I had a very simple plan. I just wanted to write the biggest superhero story of all time,” said Millar in an exclusive scoop on the series announcement at The Hollywood Reporter. “It starts in the ’20s and runs through to the present day, but the next volume (book five in the series) moves everything forward one generation as Chloe and Hutch settle down and get married and have a family of their own. The world’s been fixed, the superheroes now working in tandem with the human race to create this perfect society, but people are still people and it doesn’t take long for the family feud to move forward one generation.”
Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 16.
Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
