    Nemesis is back with a bang. Hitting the floor running, the baddest of the bad doesn’t waste any time doing what he does best. And that is executing a city-wide criminal caper. In this case executing a cunning plan that will leave the City of Angels piled high with bodies and its storm drains flowing with blood. And, I dare say, more stomach-churning twists and turns too.

    Lotusland Comics

    'Nemesis: Reloaded' is not for the squeamish. Readers can leave their moral code at the door and just succumb to the madness that is a supervillain unhinged, unchallenged, and unstoppable. A protagonist this bad has never looked so good. It is an absolute coup that Millar joined forces with Jimnez because 'Nemesis' is a stunning piece of art soaked in blood and depravity. Shocking, exciting, and exhilarating, but never boring.

    First Comics News

    Back in 2010, Mark Millar and Steve McNiven raised this question -“What If Batman was The Joker?” and to our surprise, they delivered that question in spades as Nemesis is brutal, cold, and calculating, and yes, the fans that read the original series actually cheered for his actions (As horrible as they were); Fast forward to twenty-two years later and Millar gives us a soft reboot for both fans old and new and right away, the opening issue picks up right where the first series left off as Nemesis wrecks havoc on the streets of Los Angeles, taking out criminals and police officers; There’s no rhyme nor reason to Nemesis’ actions but he’s getting joy in making people feel nervous yet scared with this actions. Millar definitely raises the bar with his script as the series is loud, brash, and bloody which reminds us how the evil that Nemesis brings to the table. Jorge Jimenez’s art is simply breathtaking and given the subject matter, he manages to produce some spectacular work that stands the test of time. Nemesis: Reloaded is unapologetic when it comes to the amount of violence that’s been presented in this issue, but if you want a series that takes the anti-hero concept to such bloody and twisted measures then this series is for you.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Millar crafts an entertaining and engaging reboot of the Nemesis character. The story is filled with a gleeful violence that serves both the story and character wonderfully while also allowing the reader to immerse themselves in a new, interesting and dangerous world. The plot is compelling and the dark nature of it makes me giddy to see what happens next. The Art: Jimenez is one of my favorite artists and his work in this first issue if bold, beautifully detailed and visually exciting.

    Graphic Policy

    Nemesis Reloaded #1 is the insane violence Mark Millar has delivered in the past. Everything is ramped up to 11 delivering a comic that feels like it is both taking itself seriously but also spoofing so much of what has come before. No matter, it’s a hell of a lot of fun and a welcome return after being missing for so long.

    Lyles Movie Files

    Mark Millar returns to one of his more popular creations with Nemesis Reloaded and this time he’s bringing artist Jorge Jimenez with him. In the introduction — unusual for most comics, Millar explains he decided it was time for an update for Nemesis. To reinvent him for a new generation of readers while still retaining the elements that have made the character endure over the years. It’s an interesting decision as the concept of Nemesis, essentially what if Batman were a homicidal, calculating killer instead of the world’s greatest hero, doesn’t require a ton of nuance and introspective. (...) The final page sets the direction for this mini-series and it’s certainly an inspired cliffhanger, but the long-term success of this arc will be if Nemesis is actually challenged in completing his mission.
