Media Release — Prior to its release, Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s JUPITER’S LEGACY was speculated to be the comics event of 2013. Now, three issues and a tremendous shift in status quo later, the inevitable has happened!
Quitely and Millar’s tale of what happens when the first wave of superheroes grow old while their children enjoy a life of celebrity, sex, and drugs has seen record-breaking sales, enthusiastic reactions from fans, and fascinating speculation on where this maxi-series could go next. In light of the overwhelming success of JUPITER’S LEGACY, Image Comics is honored to present 64 pages of content for only $3.99 in JUPITER’S LEGACY GIANT-SIZED EDITION #1, a collection of the first three issues of one of the biggest series of 2013.
Releasing December 26th, JUPITER’S LEGACY GIANT-SIZED EDITION #1 is the perfect opportunity for readers to get in on the ground floor of this series in time for the release of the fourth issue in January 2014. After the shocking and unprecedented events in JUPITER’S LEGACY #3, everything we know is wrong. The story can go anywhere, the cast can do anything, and, depending on their point of view, the world is either their prison…or their oyster. Who lives? Who dies? Who will save us all from the superhero revolution?
