The latest issue of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s collaboration at Image Comics, “Jupiter’s Legacy” #3 hits stores next week and looks to make a splash. Previously dubbed by Millar as the issue where the shit hits the fan, this issue looks to be the biggest issue of the series yet — and we have an exclusive preview of it here for you today.
As is likely the case for most of you, the main draw here is Frank Quitely’s art — particularly that which is on display in the latter half of the preview. The sixth page in particular features the type of visceral artistic styling that make Quitely a household name, and one of the most celebrated artists in the industry; the way you can actually feel the character getting slammed through doors and into cars is certainly next-level artistry, really taking advantage of what the page can do to show off the might of the superpowered.
