Jupiter's-Circle-Millarworld

The other day, June 29th, was Millar Day. Why is there a day named after Mark Millar? Because genius should be celebrated and the man is an imperial genius. With Kingsman: The Secret Service, Empress, HUCK, CHRONONAUTS, and WANTED being the product of his genius, I’d like to hear a dissenting opinion that actually has any root in reality…

Jupiter’s Circle is no exception. It is the prequel to Jupiter’s Legacy and chronicles the lives and times of  the Legacy’s kids Superhero parents, circa 1959. The plot is well laid and takes care to delve into the personal and hero lives of the characters and their membership in their superhero Union. The historical tie-ins were great. The art is wonderful and has just the right retro feel and coloring.
