    This is an incredibly strong issue due to great character work and a humbling story of a hero with a problem nobody thought anything of in the 50s. Read Full Review

    You should really already be reading this gem from Millar and Co., but if you aren't now's a great time to get on board. Read Full Review

    "Jupiter's Circle" #5 is a terrific chapter in what has been a terrific series, adding dimension to the already-completed companion series but also working as a perfectly viable and well-constructed series on its own. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Elvis Dutan Aug 8, 2015

    Overall, the framing device (which I wont reveal due to spoilers) was a necessary addition due to the ramifications but it did lead to the issue having less impact than it could have. It was a detachment, which is a risk that a series which thrives on getting us close and personal would be devil-may-care to take. The issue did have its shining moments though, the stuff that pulls us in, and Gianfelice is now a treat but it does leave a lot on the 6th and final issue to bring this all home. I know I am anxiously awaiting it, and have more than a little faith in Millar and Co. Comments and thoughts would be appreciated below. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, this series has been hit by the unfortunate departure of Wilfredo Torres. Gianfelice's art seems rushed in comparison. His normally lyrical style is replaced by heavy, simple lines and sometimes sketchy details. The flat coloring does little to enhance those pencils either. Read Full Review

    I continue to be a great fan of this series, even if this is most likely the last time I cover it for the site. At this point, I am interested to see it folded back into Legacy as a cross-time study on repercussions. Sins of the father, and so on. Read Full Review
