Image Comics First Look: ‘Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem’ #1 

‘Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem’ #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 16.

Press Release

Hot off the heels of Netflix’s Jupiter’s Legacy teaser, Image Comics has announced the series will return this June with Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem. Written by series writer Mark Millar, the new series will pick up story threads from the Netflix adaptation and will feature art by Tommy Lee Edwards.

So what’s it about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

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 interview with 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.”

Check out an early preview below to get a taste of the new series.
