Netflix Wants You to Binge Mark Millar’s Chrononauts: Futureshock

Chrononauts: Futureshock

Netflix is going to attempt to bring its binge model to comics with Mark Millar‘s Chrononauts: Futureshock. All four issues of the miniseries will be released on the same day in October.

The series is a follow up to the 2015 series by Millar and Sean Gordon Murphy. It has characters Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly attempting to time travel to the future but something is preventing them from doing so. It opens up the question as to if this is a problem that there isn’t a future to go to?

Being released through Image Comics, the art is by Eric Canete and features main covers by Pasqual Ferry and first issue variants by Travis Charest, Kev Nowlan, Rey Macutay, and Canete.

This isn’t the first time this has been done. Robert Kirkman’s Tech Jacket Digital tried it in 2014. Publisher TKO Studio allows you to choose to purchase an entire series at once as single issues or as a collected edition on release.

The model is an interesting one as stores have a bit more risk put on them. Usually, stores order future issues based on past issues performances. With a same-day release for all issues that data is removed from the equation. For instance, the first issue of Chrononauts sold 57,465 copies according to estimates while the second sold 33,551. The third issue saw sales of 26,605 and fourth issue was 25,261. Huck #1, also by Millar, sold 37,775 copies in 2015. His more recent series The Magic Order, Millar’s first major release through Netflix, saw estimated sales of the first issue at 158,425 copies, #2 at 33,784, #3 at 29,870, #4 at 27,959, and #5 at 27,372. It’s unknown if this series will have incentives for stores like his previous.

Chrononauts: Futureshock is out October 30.

In a crazed future where unhinged technologies and interconnected parallel Earths have given rise to a spectacular class of super-criminal, the most beloved celebrities aren’t actors or rock stars, but the bounty hunters who traverse an exotic multiverse in search of impossible prey! But when the spotlight-shunning, strait-laced tracer known as Tab finds herself in an ultra-violent race for her greatest prize yet, she’s forced to work with her greatest enemy, the only person capable of IDing him: her own elderly, overbearing and hypercritical mother, who was once the most fabulous and celebrated bounty hunter of them all.

A sci-fi action comedy blacker than dragon s***, MOTHERLANDS is the dimension-hopping, criminal-blasting story of two extraordinary women written by Si Spurrier (SUICIDE SQUAD, The Spire) with art by Rachael Stott (Star Trek/Planet of the Apes, Sex Criminals).
