Jupiter’s Legacy #1 | Mark Millar and Frank Quitely

A mysterious island? Overbearing superhero parents with ideals from a bygone era? A constant battle of cynicism and hope penned by Mark Millar and illustrated by Frank Quitely? Yes, please! These are but a few of the ingredients in Image Comics’ newest ongoing series Jupiter’s Legacy, a sort of TMZ-meets-Astro City take on the superhero genre that parallels the world of America in 1929 with the present day. While technology has advanced and a golden age of superheroes has grown up and grown old before the world’s eyes, many of the same issues are still with us: economic disaster, political unrest, a sense of impending doom. Millar wisely uses the motif of superheroes as a prism to dissect real-world problems, letting them play out between the clashing idealistic beliefs of the old guard and the younger, more cynical and self-obsessed nature of the younger generation. Quitely, as per usual, knocks it out of the park with his visuals, bringing everything from a serene beachside vista to a chockablock royal rumble between a gang of heroes and an anti-matter battery-powered baddie named Blackstar to life with crisp, action-packed panels. Jupiter’s Legacy raises plenty of interesting questions in its first issue and leaves you hungry for answers, the hallmark of a great issue. Millar and Quitely might just be on to something here. As for us, we’ll be eagerly waiting until we can get our hands on #2.

Talon #7 | Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV and Guillem March

Remember how much you loved Scott Snyder’s “Court of the Owls” arc on Batman? Remember how much you loved our exclusive preview pages from Talon #7? Remember how awesome it’s going to be when you see Calvin Rose try to lay the beatdown on Gotham’s P90x aficionado Bane? Unless you’re from the future, don’t answer that last one. Synder and Tynion’s Talon is one of the most enjoyable titles in DC’s New 52 line right now, and the revenge-and-mystery-filled plot is thickening faster than a flourless chocolate cake at 400 degrees. With two powerhouses like Snyder and Tynion behind the story and Guillem March’s consistently thrilling artwork, this is definitely a book worth adding to your pull list. Can Calvin beat Bane? Why would we ruin the fun? Read it yourself, pal!

Masks #6 | Chris Roberson and Dennis Calero

There’s just something about the pulp heroes of the early twentieth century that makes them so enjoyable to read about. Perhaps its the overwrought language, the over-the-top villains, or the dark, noirish undertones. Roberson’s Masks, a Dynamite Entertainment mini-series, has put the likes of The Shadow, Green Hornet, Zorro, Black Bat and the Spider together in one book to create the kind of team-up title that I could only imagine in my fan fiction-filled dreams. Fortunately for me, Roberson is doing the heavy lifting, aided and abetted by the terrific artwork of Dennis Calero, which really makes this alternate reality version of America pop off the page. Issue six finds our pulpy protagonists in increasingly dire situations as they pursue the secrets of the Justice Party and attempt to prevent fascism from holding sway over the American public. In short, Masks is some of the most fun you can have in 22 pages and a worthwhile addition to anyone’s pull list.
