    Theres no real means of talking about this story in detail without giving the plot away, but the good news is if youre reading Vol. 2 then you already know whats going no. Rest assured, Millar develops the plot nicely, and the story doesnt linger in any one area too long. On top of that theres still plenty of room for a twist now and then, which is pleasantly surprising. Millar and Quietly are really going for it in terms of producing the aforementioned book of quality value, instead of resting on their laurels and producing a book based solely on name recognition. Dont be fooled by a familiar name where these guys are involved, because things are not the same old same old and only gearing better. Read Full Review

    Jupiter's Legacy 2 #2 is a sensational continuation from the opening issue, wasting no time in diving into the action. Not only do the creative team handle this in a bold and explosive manner, but they also give some wonderful emotional as well as a generally fun atmosphere along the way. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Dave MacPhail Jul 31, 2016

    I would highly recommend at least reading Jupiter's first series before picking this up as it would be difficult for a new reader to understand the motivations and events that have lead to this moment in time. You could possibly read this issue stand alone and enjoy it as an action piece but I feel it does both the reader and the series a disservice and it is a tale that is much more interesting as a complete work.

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Jul 27, 2016

    As we have come to expect, the writing by Millar is fantastic and the art by Quitely is nothing short of iconic. From one panel to the next, the dialogue and art drives the story from one exciting turn to another until we reach our temporary destination, a full-page spread that will leave you clamoring for issue #3. Jupiter’s Legacy 2 may prove to be some of Mark Millar’s finest work and never has that been clearer than with Issue #2. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 28, 2016

    The first half of this issue sees Millar step aside and allow Frank Quitely free reign to render a truly dazzling superhero fight sequence. Everything in these pages, from the graceful choreography and body language to the massive sense of scope to the sheer weirdness of these superhuman combatants, serves as a reminder that Quitely is one of the best in the business.

    Impulse Gamer - Dana Anderson Aug 7, 2016

    Overall I really love and enjoy this series. Im always excited to hear when the next issue is coming out and #2 was no exception. Even though the overall story doesnt progress a huge amount, we still get to see some subtle developments and a few interesting twists in the story arc. Its compelling, fun to read and gritty. The volume has been amped up and Millar and Quitely have been uncompromising in delivering another epic edition to this unique story. It really does pack a punch! Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 28, 2016

    We won't go into the nitty gritty of the story as it doesn't particularly deviate too much from what you'd expect after reading Issue #1. It's still a good read, and there's a couple of small twists, but it's nothing for us to rant or rave about. This issue is a solid instalment in Volume 2 ofJupiter's Legacy, and we look forward to seeing how the story progresses over the next couple of months. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 27, 2016

    Jupiter's Legacy 2 #2 is a decent continuation of the last issue, but it still feels lacking. There were some developments, but neither the story nor the characters felt like they advanced all that much. The writing is fine and the art is good to a certain degree. Ultimately, while not a bad comic, the second issue doesn't really do much to hook you in. Hopefully the next issue is where things start really picking up. Read Full Review
