Mark Millar is set to return to the world of Jupiter’s Legacy for the new sequel miniseries Requiem, which promises to pick up story threads from the upcoming Netflix TV adaptation when it launches through Image Comics this June. Get yourself a preview of the issue here, along with comments from Millar below…
“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. “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.”
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.
Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem #1 will go on sale on Wednesday, June 16th.
