The world's greatest superhuman is back. Hutch and the gang have tracked him down to a secret hide-out in northern Russia where the ageing super-villain has become a bitter loner. With Walter Sampson's league of super-villains taking over the planet, can a world crisis haul this legend out of retirement, or must the gang face the bad guys alone?

    The closing pages of this issue give us much to look forward to. And I really like Skyfox's simple plan to kick some ass. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Aug 31, 2016

    Although not as action packed as the previous issues, issue three of Jupiter’s Legacy 2 does more to advance the story and bring depth to the characters than any physical contest could. As so much of the parent series dealt with the first generation of superheroes looking down on their children for, in their opinion, not living up to their potential, it is a wonderfully change to have a second generation hero looking at his father with disappointment as he begins to learn that perhaps the first generation of heroes were just as complicated as their children. Miller and Quitely’s work in this issue, as it has been for the rest of the series, is phenomenal and will leave you pining for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Whether or not this volume manages to wrap up the Jupiter's legacy saga in the remaining two issues, it's building towards a worthwhile climax. Read Full Review

    While we are a good bit into this series, I would strongly recommend it to fans of Watchmen and, yes, BvS. Issue #3 is an issue where nothing really happened in terms of fists being thrown, and yet I find it the most artistically intricate and superb issue of the three released so far. I'm hoping that this is the new groove for this run and that we have nothing by upside left to see. Mr Millar and Quitely, to the moon and beyond, gentlemen. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Aug 31, 2016

    Another banger from Millar and Quitely, not like you should expect anything less. For an issue that featured little to no combat, the dialogue and plot movement alone made it a hit. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Sep 7, 2016

    I always hold my breath with Millar, wondering if one day he'll push the boat out so far it'll go over a waterfall, it's come close once or twice but so far so good. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Dana Anderson Sep 18, 2016

    Although this issue was slower paced and didnt progress a great deal, the deliberate gradual pace was needed to help establish these new and complex relationships. Overall Im really enjoying the character development and the interesting relationship dynamics that are forming. Im looking forward to when the next issue comes out and we get to see more of the super-villains plan to break into Supermax. Millar is laying the foundations for an all mighty raid and I cant wait to see how its all going to unfold. Read Full Review
