    Loved their work on the Authority so I'm definitely picking this up. Quietly and Millar on a giant epic superhero? I want this now.

    This is the first Millar book in a while that has peaked my interests.

    Sounds like a potentially great concept, though I haven't been very fond of Millar's recent work. Superior was pretty good, but nothing particularly amazing. I'll pick this up for Quietly's art, though. I'll most likely trade wait it, too. I would buy singles, but I'm wagering the delays on this will, at least, probably be on par with the other Millarworld titles.

    I read the thread title as "Jupiter's Chicken" lol. I'll be picking this up as I am a Millar fanboy.

    I'm not a big fan of Quitely's work, though it doesn't look as grotesque as usual here. Thanks for posting the article. After reading Millar's words, I am intrigued.

    This could be the biggest piece of **** ever put between two covers, and I'll still read it. Know why?

    Frank Quitely.

    Having said that though, I have a HUGE soft spot for Millar's stuff so I'm looking forward to this.

    I had no intention of picking this up when it came out but quietly's art peaked my interest. I ended up loving it. I'm not much of an indy reader, having only read Millar's work on Civil War and Wolverine, but I'm glad I got this. I'll definately see it through to its end.

    I know millar's personality turns people off, but his writing is very ballsy.

    What happened with this? I can't find any info anywhere. Was it cancelled or something or is Millar just taking his super, sweet ass time. He's said there was supposed to be 10-12 issues but we only got 4 and its been almost a year since the last issue dropped. Safe to say it's been cancelled then?

    It's probably less Millar and more Quietly. He's notoriously slow, and he was also working on Morrison's Multiversity roughly at the same time, and while it was only one issue, it was a pretty complicated piece that probably took him a while. Now that he's done with that, he'll probably go back to this, though nothing has been said for sure that I know of.

    I've just heard so many great things about this I decided to grab the first 4 issues and then I looked it up and seen none had come out since January and it blew me away. That's a hell of a delay.

    I recall Millar saying they were not on any formal or particular schedule and that it would certainly not come out monthly. Very disappointing though as this was at the tippy-top of my pull list.

    Welcome to the pain of being a Quietly fan. The wait on All Star Superman was brutal.

    So I finished Circle and Legacy and honestly those books are the best original superhero books I’ve read in years. Fantastic art by Quitely and Torres on Legacy and Circle respectively. From the themes to the great action and character development it’s truly amazing. If done right this could be the next great superhero Movie or television franchise for Netflix depending which way they go. I highly recommend this series and I can’t wait for the third book in the trilogy Jupiter's Requiem in 2019. You can definitely fill the Star Wars influence in these books. Do yourself a favor and read this Epic superhero saga.:up: Anyway rant over.

    Edit: Also forgot to give credit to the awesome Mark Millar.
