    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 14, 2014

    Magnus: Robot Fighter once again excels in giving explosive action, as though the additional art from Jarrell felt out of place, the overall atmosphere was electric. The team-up from Magnus and Leeja was also a nice addition, teasing at a possible future. Highly recommended Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Oct 15, 2014

    Whether you've read Magnus before or not, it doesn't take more than a few pages in before you understand him very well, and I need that! Not only am I going to be there for Magnus, I'm enjoying other Gold Key books that come my way. Kudos to Dynamite and these creators for grabbing me by the short and curlies and not letting go until I read these comics! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 15, 2014

    Magnus: Robot Fighter moves right along with trying to get Magnus closer to his goals down below but getting sidetracked a bit by what Jode is up to with the Butcher's Bloc obstacle death course that he wants to put them through. There's a lot of bloody good fun with it as they deal with the horde of things that are thrown at them and there's obviously appeal in seeing him working with Leeja. There's also fun in seeing him educate Leeja on how things are done in his world. The violence is the main fun here though and it's really nicely executed with plenty of movement and activity, a lot of good attention to detail and a kind of forward push that makes it engaging to follow the flow through. Add in some of the politics that are going into play as the bookends part of the issue as well and it's easy to be pretty pleased here, even if it's lacking in some real meat. Well, story meat at least as there's plenty of body meat strewn all over the place. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Oct 7, 2014

    The artwork is dynamic. I enjoy Cory Smith's storytelling, composition and figures. The world he created in Magnus is all his. My only issue is with the inking. I find the line weight in some close ups too thick. His inking works better in his action scenes and long shots. At first I thought that Dynamite as policy skipped on the inking in most of its comics. Smith informed me that he does ink all of his Magnus pages. He is a good comic book artist, but his inking is not always satisfying to me. Read Full Review

    This opens on some unappealing art from Sandy Jarrell, but kicks back into Cory Smith for the good stuff and the issue recovers. The story is dire and exciting, plus there is an entertaining explanation of child birth. Robot Fighter continues its strong run.
