    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 15, 2015

    While the flashbacks may go a step too far in getting to the depths of Magnetos character, everything else about this issue moves with such an amazing pace, and with such darkly beautiful visuals, that its easy to not only look past them, but to feel that theres still a tremendous value in this issue. Seeing a vulnerable Magneto not only try to keep up appearances, but make what must be one of the hardest decisions of his lengthy existence is well worth the price of admission and sets the stage for even more to come.

    The Latest Pull - Thomas Harbaugh Apr 16, 2015

    However, if all the praise I've thrown at this book, already, hasn't convinced you to read it, I'm not sure what else would. Magneto is a very well written, nearly self-contained, series that manages to make readers sympathize with one of the most brutal killers in all of the Marvel universe. The fact that the artwork is so consistently impressive, is just an added bonus. Read Full Review

    While some of the plot points feel a little well-worn, the execution makes for a very satisfying issue. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Apr 16, 2015

    Final ThoughtsWhen a superhero book can read like another genre I feel as though the creative team got something right. This issue of Magneto looked and read like a horror book. The overall theme of someone's past coming back to haunt them was taken literally in this issue and was very well done. Magneto has assumed the role of a leader and with that title, he has taken on all of the responsibility it entails. This issue of Magneto was great and the stunning visuals made the price of the book well worth it. Read Full Review

    The series reads like more of a horror book than a superhero one at this point, which suits Magneto and his present state of mind quite well. It also suits Gabriel Walta's subdued art style. Read Full Review

    Writer Cullen Bunn has quietly crafted one of Marvel’s best titles and one of Mags best ever stories. While this issue does rehash certain themes, the script is strong and the final pages are devastating - with Walta’s expressive, gritty art adding much to the power of that heartbreaking sequence.

    Mystery, sacrifice, and mentally produced ghost Nazis, count me in!! Hopefully the 'last days' issues don't derail this book's strong storytelling.
