THE FINAL CHAPTER OF “JUPITER’S LEGACY” BEGINS AT DARK HORSE COMICS

Dark Horse Comics presents the finale of legendary writer and storyteller Mark Millar’s (Civil War, Kingsman) powerful Jupiter’s Legacy saga. Joined by world-renowned artist Tommy Lee Edwards (Jupiter’s Legacy Requiem, Mother Panic) and letterer John Workman (Sonic the Hedgehog, Doom Patrol), Jupiter’s Legacy: Finale is the epic five-part finale of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s superhero story. Covers for issue #1 include main cover art from Tommy Lee Edwards and variants by Frank Quitely (Jupiter’s Circle, New X-Men), Julian Totino Tedesco (Sir Edward Grey, Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland, The Walking Dead Deluxe), and Skottie Young (Usagi Yojimbo: Ice and Snow, Black Hammer: Age of Doom).

In the final volume of Jupiter’s Legacy:

The lineage of America’s superheroes is on the brink. They’ve grappled with internal scandals, personal demons, and the constant threat of raising children in a world teetering on the edge of destruction. The struggle to understand the origins of their powers and the looming threat of heroes and villains to humanity has been a constant battle. Now, the superheroes find themselves trapped and murdered on an alien world, while the enemies of Earth, who have long envied our planet, seize the opportunity to launch their invasion.

“We started this book in 2012,” said Millar. “When Barack Obama was still in his first term and now we’re finally finishing it, twelve years older and hopefully wiser. It’s been the longest story I’ve written in my career and an honour to work with some of the greatest artists in the modern industry. I had this plotted on my board a couple of years before and it’s so satisfying to see it all come together at last. I’m so proud of this book and want to thank everyone for their patience. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. What other book out there can promise: The secret of the universe contained within?”

Read the conclusion of Millar’s masterpiece, Jupiter’s Legacy: Finale #1 (of 5), when it arrives on October 16, 2024. Pre-order at your local comic shop for $4.99.
