An ALL-NEW GOLD KEY adventure spinning directly from the events of MAGNUS: ROBOT FIGHTER #4! Magnus is A robot fighter...but not THE robot fighter. How has the merciless LEEJA: HUMAN HUNTER kept the robot fighters from causing chaos on earth? And how does it tie into THE SINGULARITY? It's overstuffed action and intrigue from FRED VAN LENTE (Conan) and ROBERTO CASTRO (Warlord of Mars)!

    If you missed the first four issues of this series and would like to try but are afraid of already missing too much, this was created for you. If you've read the previous issues, this is a great look from another perspective. However you come to this book you'll find it outstanding. Read Full Review

    If you're enjoying the main Magnus Robot Fighter story, you're going to love this issue. Fred Van Lente and company offer up a story that bridges the gap between two issues while offering up a surprising amount of answers and additional details that really fleshes things out. Read Full Review

    You never know what you're going to get with an issue like this as zero issues have been used in all sorts of ways over the years. This one brings in the main series writer with Fred Van Lente and he definitely is the right way to go since he's building a pretty interesting world here. With Roberto Castro handling the art, it has a different feeling than the main series but definitely fits in very well with it where you'd be pleased to see it as the main series as well. The story here gives us a lot of background on the workings of North Am in terms of the robots themselves and it's definitely a story that offers a lot of ideas and threads to pull on over time. It explains a few things, only so much you can put full faith in, and adds to the overall richness of the world. If we get a couple of these a year it'd be pretty damn good. Read Full Review

    While I'm missing Cory Smith on this issue, it provides an interesting history to the series while also tying in and from a different character's point of view.
