    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Dec 8, 2017

    One of the best parts of this comic is the mini comic at the end telling the origin of the jetpack. It's only part one though, so as we learn our current tale, we will learn the past leading up to it at the same time without it interfering with the main story. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - jenisaur Dec 15, 2017

    Ben Matsuya, Mara Jayne Carpenter, and Taylor Esposito create the perfect aesthetic for this innovative world. Jacky soars through the sky with grace, but once she hits the ground she cant manage to walk in a straight line without tripping. The movement comes off as a character trait, however, rather than a gag. Instead of seeming like a teenage girl clich, it shows why Jacky might prefer the clouds. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 7, 2017

    Jupiter Jet is superb all-ages read from Action Lab. The creators do a wonderful job of creating an exciting story where action, comedy, and mystery abound. Jupiter Jet #1 is really just an all-around fun read and honestly just a really well done comic book. I was really surprised at how much fun I had reading this issue. It is not easy to pull off an all-ages book that is actually good, and I think the team does a great job of presenting this story, having fun with it, but also not talking down to their readers. Jupiter Jet #1 is awesome and I am very excited to see where the story goes from here! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 8, 2017

    If you need another all-ages superhero comic in your life, Jupiter Jet is most certainly worth a look. The series combines elements of The Rocketeer and Robin Hood as it crafts an enjoyable retro-futuristic world. The relative lack of emphasis on heroes and villains doesn't hurt the book's appeal, either. The art has its problems when it comes to consistent storytelling, but this first issue nonetheless serves as a promising debut for the new series. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Nov 11, 2017

    If you hadnt noticed, I skipped the story so far. There isnt a story so far, as this is the origin issue. This is where Jackys adventure begins. She is a spunky young girl who just wants to protect her family. The art is absolutely fantastic, and I love the dialect created for her surroundings. The speech patterns combine old and recent popular phrases while giving life to its own style. The art is engaging and full of life. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to read this issue. You should hop on board and read Jupiter Jet! Jacky is a heart-warming heroine thats easy to relate to. Im looking forward to seeing where her journeys lead her! Read Full Review
