The comic-book event of 2013 finally arrives as superstar creators MARK MILLAR and FRANK QUITELY give us the superhero epic that all future comics will be measured by.

Jupiter's Legacy and the World according to Millar 0

A first issue, in any comic, faces many challenges. The creators can't delve into any character moment, or story arc and indulge themselves with the same ease as authors of established comics . The creators must establish the characters, the world, and the rules of the world, and still get us caught up in the drama within a very small page count. In one sense it seemed like Brian K.
