Top Customer Reviews
Wilfredo Torres's art is outstanding - it reminds me of Darwyn Cooke, which is very high praise.
The appearance of J Edgar Hoover and the reference to L. Ron Hubbard were quite entertaining and fitting.
Exposing establishment figures' flaws has been a staple of literature since Death of a Salesman (if not longer). In comics it's been a standard trope since Alan Moore's Watchmen. And while the idea of a gay hero might have been shocking once, these days not so much.
The art was undistinguished and the characters really don't have enough space to develop. I never really got to know them so I never really cared when their dark secrets were exposed. Perhaps this would read better if I'd also read the companion book Jupiter's Legacy but nothing in this book made me want to seek it out.
It's not a bad book by any measure, but frankly after a week I have trouble remembering who the characters were or what the story was.
Nicely written and quite well-illustrated, it’s enjoyable and engaging. Well worth a look. Volume 1 so probably more to come.
Most importantly, Jupiter's Legacy is NOT required reading for this book, and if you're more interested in spoofy 50s capes in Hollywood than you are in the privileged children of those capes, you can comfortably crack this series open first.
