There’s a lot going on in this comic—lots of different characters, backstories, a couple of subplots, etc.—but the main plot revolves around a group who have banded together to rescue a man named Persio from wrongful imprisonment under a corrupt regime. The story takes a while to get going, with a surprising amount of exposition at the beginning, and isn’t always easy to follow, at least at first. There’s a vast, interconnected world here that we’re thrown into with little frame of reference; however, once the story starts to heat up, things get easier to understand and a lot more interesting. The artwork also helps bring this world to life, with a lot of muted earth tones that bring out the desert setting.
There’s a lot of great potential in this comic. There’s a pretty interesting story unfolding with a vast world of possibilities for it to tap into. Outcasts of Jupiter #1 is a pretty good beginning, and I’ll be interested to see where the comic goes from here.
