Jupiter’s Legacy Netflix Specials out soon from Panini

Jupiter's Legacy Netflix Specials

Panini Comics UK are releasing two Jupiter’s Legacy Bookazines this month, to tie in with the launch of the tie-in TV show, streaming now on Netflix – the first of Millar World’s Netflix productions.

Jupiter’s Legacy Netflix Special Volume One goes on sale 13th May 2021, and Volume Two on 20th May, both collecting the strips written by Mark Millar, with art by Frank Quitely.

Volume One opens in 1932. Sheldon Sampson’s dreams about a mysterious source of power lead him, his brother Walter, and a group of loyal followers on a quest around the world. What they discover sets them on a course that will wrench a family apart and alter the world’s political stage…

Decades after their journey, Sheldon and Walter are super-powered legends, world renowned for their heroism. But the offspring trained to live in their image have fallen desperately short. Rocked by one public scandal after another, Chloe and her brother Brandon are a dishonor to the generation before them.

The rift reaches its breaking point when one branch of the family overthrows the government and struggles to rule at any cost – while the others must flee for their own safety. But when the failures of the corrupt leaders catch up to them, the world hovers on the brink of collapse – and the hidden heroes must emerge to take back their legacy.

In the second volume, the superheroes have taken over the world, and only the supervillains can save us from their disastrous mistakes and monumental hubris. Hutch and Chloe have been in hiding with their son, but now they’re gathering a team of supervillains to go back to America to retake the White House in the name of all humanity…
