    With each passing issue The Magicians proves to be just as much of a rollercoaster as it is as a novel or show. Things got dark fast, and I hope this creative team does not let up on the breaks with so much that is now at stake. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Jan 2, 2020

    Overall, I really enjoyed reading The Magicians #3. Sophie's resurrection added a much more surprising direction that I didn't think the series would take. I'm excited to see what the explanation is for her resurrection but knowing this franchise, I have faith that it'll be something amazing. The ending of this issue is quite shocking, but it calls for a much more intriguing aspect that I'm looking forward to seeing develop. I know it's only three issues in, but I'm already referring to this as one of my favorite comic series. Read Full Review
