Never let it be said that Mark Millar doesn't know how to hype his work.

Check out some of these highlights from the call and a few preview pages from Jupiter's Legacy #3, which hits comic-store shelves August 28.

Online harassment is, sadly, so much a part of the Comics Internet - Hell, the Internet in general, depressingly - that it can sometimes be very easy to become immune to it, even accidentally; insults or abuse become glossed over as we tut to ourselves, think troll and move on to something else
