Mark Millar Is A Little Confused As To When His Comics Are Coming Out

On October the 15th, Bleeding Cool reported that amongst other titles, Jupiter's Legacy: Requiem #5 would be delayed a week by Image Comics, from the 20th of October to the 27th. There's a lot of it about. However, on October 19th, Mark Millar stated that it would be published on the 20th of October anyway and promoted it on his newsletter.

Well, it seems that Millar only just found out that it didn't get published last week, and came out yesterday instead. Although he seems to think that yesterday is today, writing this morning "There's something weird going on with distribution at the moment and a lot of stores didn't get last week's comics until this week, this week's comics coming next week like Marty McFly has dropped the almanac again and the timeline is a complete disaster. Thus, Jupiter's Legacy: Requiem #5 just hitting some stores today on the launch day for The Magic Order #1."

Well, yesterday, rather. Also no one has told Mark Millar that The Magic Order #1 has also been delayed a week, till next Wednesday. So all the promotion he is doing – including getting Screen rant to run the first issue of The Magic Order Vol 1 without the swear words or full-frontal male nudity (something I think ReedPOP would have also preferred) – is a week away from when it would have hit hardest.

Millar states "I've got the best artists in the world drawing these planned five volumes and just secured the artist for volume four the other week. This series means a lot to me and it's going to be one Hell of a live-action show when you see it on Netflix too. We've all been beavering away on this for some time." Last year, Netflix announced that Magic Order was not going forward at the broadcaster, but earlier this year, Mark Millar said it was again.

Jupiter's Legacy: Requiem #5 was published by Image Comics yesterday as a work-for-hire comic from Netflix, and Magic Order Vol 2 #1 will be out this coming Wednesday. Someone tell Millar that the next Jupiter's Legacy: Reqiuem #6 won't be out till at least the middle of December.
