    This continues to be one of my favorite series of the year and I cannot stop recommending it to anyone I come across. Mark Millar, Wilfredo Torres, Davide Gianfelice, and the ever present Frank Quitely, have created something special. I cant wait for the Skyfox/Hutch Sr. finale to the first volume, because that was a character I am intensely interested in. Either way, its a trip. Comments and thoughts would be appreciated below.

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Nov 6, 2015

    Sad and touching perspective on life and how even a superhero can make mistakes, lose his or her way and everything they've worked so hard for. Not even close to my favorite drawn and illustrated piece of Millar's work, but hey what can you expect when you change the illustrator midway through the series. I did however feel that the writing and morals in this issue greatly outweighed the inconsistent artwork and made for a good read. Read Full Review

    Jupiter's Circle #4 is a refreshing uplift following a rather disappointing third issue, as though it's still quite a bit off the standard Jupiter's Legacy set, it's definitely an improvement. Having an intriguing narrative, that's full of poetic justice, this comic feels like something from the golden age, and is bound to bring a smile to the faces of certain fans. Read Full Review

    The second mini-arc of Jupiter's Circle comes to a close in just as problematic a way as its first arc did. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Jul 1, 2015

    Despite how it might sound, I'm still invested in Millar's Jupiter's Circle. Sure, as I've mentioned before, this kind of conceit has been done elsewhere, in places like Watchmen and Superbia, but while this feels less willing to make a statement after making such a big one in its first arc, the "other side of superheroism" approach still feels fun and interesting here. I may stop covering it after this, but I'll probably continue keeping up with Circle, if for no other reason than to see when, where, how and why this folds into the Legacy story. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Jul 3, 2015

    This all leaves Jupiters Circle #4 in the curious case of disappointment by association. As it stands its by no means a bad comic and is quite enjoyable, its just that the story leaves one desiring a greater impact. A big part of this is that within this narrative the deeper character flaws, such as Fitzs fears about aging, are left unaddressed and dont actually make up the literal focus. Theyre certainly present and are the deeper problems causing tension in the story, but the characters and plot never actually address them. All this adds up to a curiously insubstantial tale thats still quite satisfying in its own way, but leaves you hoping for meatier subjects in the next story. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Jul 10, 2015

    Gianfelice's art is heavy on the Aldred, but that's not a bad thing. Good facial expressions, strong story telling and it really helped the writing in some places. A scene were a young boy announces something murderous is the only glance back at Millar's signature style but it's the artists calm depiction of the boys demeanor Read Full Review

    Predictable, done before story with not a lot to add. It does look fabulous and is told well so that's something. Read Full Review

    Hard to care about the characters when I have no idea who any of them are four issues in.
