MARK MILLAR AND NETFLIX ANNOUNCE "SPACE BANDITS" COMIC-BOOK AND SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION COVERS ILLUSTRATED BY ARTIST LEGENDS

First Limited Legends Cover Illustrated by Howard Chaykin to Retail for Just 75 Cents, the Price of a Comic-Book When Millar Was a Teen

· Today, Netflix and Mark Millar announce their latest project created in-house, Space Bandits - a female led sci-fi story, described by Millar as a female Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid set in space with a massive and exciting cast of characters.

· Superstar Artist Matteo Scalera will illustrate the comic-book translation of this original Netflix property, published by Image Comics.

· In Space Bandits, Thena Khole and Cody Blue are among the universe's most wanted felons. Each the leader of their own criminal operations, they run heists across the galaxies - hopping from ship to ship to fleece everyone inside. But when both women are betrayed by their treacherous crews, the bandits only have one thing on their minds: REVENGE.

· Mark Millar Quote: "I love writing female-led stories in everything from Reborn to Empress to Hit-Girl to Jupiter's Legacy and, of course, our recent Magic Order at Netflix. I also love writing big, fun sci-fi things. In a world with a billion superhero properties and gloomy, rain-soaked dystopian sci-fi, there's a gap in the market for sci-fi that's upbeat and fun and I wanted to combine all this into a big, high-octane story. I've been working on this as a property for Netflix since last Summer and now I'm being joined by the brilliant Matteo Scalera for the comic-book translation of this story. The guy's a genius and I've followed him for years. Having him draw this is like someone you've always had a crush on going out on a date with you. He's just amazing."

· As a special bonus, and available to order at the same time, is a limited edition series of Space Bandits Legends Covers, featuring Miller's all-time favorite comic-book artists--artists Miller was obsessed with in high school, and whom he has wanted to work with for years.

· The first of these five very limited edition covers will be illustrated by comic-book legend Howard Chaykin, and will retail for the same price as a comic-book cost when Mark was in high school... just 75 cents. All other covers will retail at the regular $3.99 price.

· Space Bandits #1 will be available in stores on Wednesday, July 3. The final order cutoff deadline is June 10.

· Space Bandits #1 also will be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
