If someone had to ask me what I regard as the best work I’ve ever done I would say it’s Jupiter’s Legacy and Jupiter’s Circle and I’m especially proud of Circle. It all forms one massive story and the whole thing will be complete by the time the movie is shooting and we’ll have all four trades nicely sitting on shelves for the year leading up to release.
Circle has been fascinating as it;s quite a below the radar series, but has enjoyed huge attention from the most unlikely sources. I’ve had 3 TV offers for it, the producers not realising it’s linked to Legacy and thus with Lorenzo DiBonaventura and when the first issue came out I had the world’s most famously gay-but-not-publicly-gay actor on the phone, asking about the idea of him bringing the gay superhero to life on-screen. It was utterly surreal because for the entire chat he never once mentioned the fact that he himself was gay and I didn’t really feel it was my place to and he seemed disappointed when he learned the rights were already with someone else.
Anyway, as we draw this series to a close it’s taken us in some interesting places and given me a chance to write a series I’ve always, always wanted to write. Here’s a wee preview for today’s issue 4 with beautiful art by Chris Sprouse and Walden Wong.
