    'Magnus' is not your ordinary "Magnus: The Robot Fighter" story because it's not that Magnus, it's something better in this latest incarnation. Kerri is a fighter of sorts, fighting for justice and the truth but using her mind instead of her fists. Higgins and Fornes have created an immersive murder mystery that is electric and intriguing from the first page to the last. You won't find a better sci-fi mystery in comic shops if you tried.  Read Full Review

    Overall, another great issue of Magnus! I can deeply recommend this book to anyone who likes sci-fi detective stories! The only complaint is that Turok will make no sense unless you've been reading all the Sovereigns titles. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 19, 2017

    Magnus builds its world pretty well here with a lot to take in but it still needs to do a better job with its supporting characters. We've really just had one issue behind us so far and knowing who is who and their positions needs to be clearer in these early issues so that things flow better, especially if you can't re-read prior issues quickly or easily, if at all. I like what Higgins is laying out here as it has a lot of depth and detail and that combined with Fornes' designs means it's an interesting world to become immersed in. This second issue just needed a bit more of a stronger hook and connection with what happened in the first to cement it as it almost feels like it stands on its own in some ways. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 19, 2017

    By the end of Magnus #2 the direction of this story and plot has been set. Nothing was in fact as it seemed inside the A.I.s world and that was where we could grasp how far this was going to spiral out of control. I must say they put some time into this because I can't tell who we should be siding with. A strong conflict for ourselves created when you can't support the human treatment of A.I.s, but you also can't support the A.I. response to this treatment. This is definitely not one of the new stories to overlook from Dynamite. Read Full Review
