In addition to revealing new variant covers for “Jupiter’s Legacy 2” #1, Image Comics has declared via press release that June 29 will be Millar Day. That day will see the release of a number of comics and collections written by Mark Millar, including the second collection of “Jupiter’s Circle” as well as the first issue of Millar and artist Frank Quitely’s “Jupiter’s Legacy 2.” Among the artists contributing variant covers for “Jupiter’s Legacy 2” #1 are Rob Liefeld, Mike Mayhew and Jae Lee.
Today also marks the start of the #MillarDayContest, wherein comic retailers are encouraged to post pictures of their in-store Millarworld displays to social media. This enters those retailers into a contest that will give them the chance to win an exclusive Skype signing with Millar and Quitely for their store. The contest ends on June 28 and the winner will be announced on Millar Day, June 29. Millar will also make two appearances that week in the United States; first on June 29 at Midtown Comics’ downtown location in NYC, and then on June 30 at DCBS in Fort Wayne, IN.
“Jupiter’s Legacy 2” #1 arrives in stores on June 29.
