The teenage Hyperion's cosmic quests with his Shi'ar friends near their end, but none of the young heroes are ready to say farewell. A quick mission in the Negative Zone sounds like the perfect coda to a storied fellowship...but what awaits Hyperion, Gladiator and the rest is horror and agony beyond their wildest nightmares!

    This event continues to surprise along with the tie-ins. Simply put HEROES REBORN: HYPERION AND THE IMPERIAL GUARD #1 is no different. As a MARVEL COMICS fan completely submerged in multiple titles, its fascinating to see the intricate nuisance and backstories of characters within the HEROES REBORN universe. So far, the biggest item of frustration is wanting more stories about both Hyperion and the Starjammers. I want to read Starjammers #1 and wish it was a real issue! Readers, I cant begin to tell you the last time I liked an event down to the tie-ins" THE TIE-INS for Petes Peppers! I know it may be a hefty toll on your wallets, but I really enjoyed this tie-in as well and think you should give it a shot. What an excellent job by Cady and his team across the board.

    Heroes Reborn: Hyperion & The Imperial Guard#1 is a great example of a trend in Marvel event comics that shows that creative teams like the ones involved here can deliver one-shots with strong emotional gravitas through good emotive writing, complemented by excellent art to deliver engaging and fun stories that can draw anyone in even those of us not emotionally attached to the characters the stories revolve around.

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau May 13, 2021

    This issue gives us a borderline satirical work into why Hyperion is the way he is. A fun comic that shines a light on the main Heroes Reborn title. Read Full Review

    Granted, this isn't necessary reading, at least at this juncture of Heroes Reborn, but I wound up really enjoying my time with these characters, and if you're a fan of the line up you will likely end up enjoying your time here just like I did. Read Full Review
