    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 21, 2021

    Jupiter's Legacy: Requiem #1 delivers. There's really no other way to put it. This is Mark Millar at his best- superheroics, the humor, the characters, it's all there, and it's all amazing. Tommy Lee Edwards' art is often breathtaking and sells the grandeur of the book totally. John Paul Leon's pages are amazing; he's a talent that was lost too soon. This is a great comic, and if Millar and company can nail the rest of the book the way they've nailed this comic, then it will be one for the ages. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 9, 2021

    Millar writes an excellent script that shows us why he is one of the best in the business. The art by Tommy Lee Edwards is pretty great as well. The whole thing is really well done and I can't wait to see where they take us from here. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Jun 23, 2021

    Jupiter's Legacy: Requiem is not without its flaws but it is off to a fantastic start. It seems Millar has an endgame for the story and I hope he maintains the quality level to this franchise as it is, in my personal opinion, his best independent work. The artwork is wonderful and innovative and I cannot wait for more of it. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Jun 16, 2021

    Chloe and Hutch's offspring are ripe for a Millarworld production. Jason has grown up from his childhood superhero days to become the new Utopian. Sheldon is definitely smiling down from above like the proudest grandfather. Otto us clearly the woke one, as he left The Union for reasons. His hacking skills are top notch, he fights for the oppressed and is pissed off by Jason's goody 2 shoes act. Sophie and her Walter-like telepathy make for an interesting character. She also stepped away from the superhero life, but she seems to be holding personal resentment towards mom dukes. Considering how Millar likes to take advantage of family members feelings, I'm going to keep my eye on this one. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier Jun 15, 2021

    Jupiter's Legacy: Requiem #1 begins the final act of Mark Millar's superhero trilogy, boasting some of the most stunning artwork I've seen from a debut issue. I'd recommend reading the first issue after catching up on Jupiter's Legacy, or if you're a fan of Millar's work. Hopefully, this series has better reception than its Netflix adaptation.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 17, 2021

    The book looks great, but the story is convoluted and overly dour, while both the lettering and the coloring distract from the story being told in different ways. It's a little bit disappointing, and I miss Frank Quitely. Read Full Review
