Publisher: Image Comics
Author: Mark Millar
Artist: Frank Quietly
Release Date: 26th July 2016
If you, like me, were itching for more of Mark Millar’s and Frank Quietly’s epic superhero story after the cliffhanger at the end of issue 1 in this second volume, then you will be happy with this issue. It picks up exactly where issue #1 left off, leaving nothing to our imagination, but in a way that is awesome and leaves you with a satisfied feeling at the end of the first half of this book. We adventures of Chloe, Hutch and their son continue with trying to free and round up some of the world’s best super villains in an attempt to free the world from the super heroes (it may be confusing, I urge you to read up).
The first half of the book focuses on an epic fight in the middle of Dubai between our heroes and Raikou, with stunning artwork once again from the legendary Quietly. Millar’s stellar writing not only delivers an incredible fight scene with some of the most incredible abilities I have seen in a super hero comic book, but is also packed full of tension with a race against the clock running at the same time. Quietly’s incredible art work also fully brings the equally incredible mind of Millar to life, this is a match made in heaven when it comes to comic books and one I cannot wait to continue reading. The story on the other side of the world also heats up pretty quickly, with Brandon and the rest of the heroes in power take even further drastic measures in order to gain more control over the planet, with signs of cracks starting to form from within.
Overall, Jupiter’s Legacy Volume 2 #2 is a fantastic continuation to this already epic series, with phenomenal fight scenes, eerily beautiful artwork, and an overall plot that is getting bigger and bigger with each and every panel. Hopefully the rest of this series will continue in this fashion, as well as a regular release schedule, because if this volume goes the same way as volume 2, I don’t think my body will be able to handle it.
Jupiter’s Legacy 2 #2 is out on Wednesday the 27th of July and again I highly recommend you pick it up. Once again although I have the extreme privileged or reading these books early, I’m still going to pick it up tomorrow with the rest of my pull list because it is so deservedly so.
