Select praise for JUPITER’S LEGACY:

“Millar and Quitely have constructed a world as rich and vibrant as our own, peopled with individuals who are neither heroes nor villains.” —IGN

It definitely lives up to the hype.” —Bloody Disgusting

What Millar and Quitely do here, and do so well, is show us a world where superheroes exist, yet nothing is better, then invite us to consider what that says about the way we have chosen to abdicate responsibility in favor of comfort. I wish more creators were willing to push the boundaries of the genre in such a compelling way.” —Newsarama

Elegantly written and drawn… this is a book to be proud of.” —Comic Book Resources 

Mark Millar and Frank Quitely have successfully created a new superhero universe.” —Comic Vine
