    Magnus: Robot Fighter continues to be a fairly unpredictable series in a lot of ways and a good part of the appeal comes from there. Not knowing where it's going or what curveballs will come out makes it interesting to read rather than just seeing so much of it plotted out ahead of time. But sometimes that unpredictability can leave you grasping for the meaning of the moment. Read Full Review

    You don't have to know the Russ Manning or Jim Shooter Magnus characterizations to enjoy this book, nor do you need to bring a whole lot of previous knowledge to the proceedings: It's the future, Magnus suddenly lost everything he knew, and now there are robots that need smashing. Still, the simplicity of premise doesn't mean that the book isn't complex and rich in story-telling, and there's even a bit of real education to be had if you're reading the pages closely enough. Magnus, Robot Fighter #10 is a good chapter in the ongoing story of the future world that's coming, reading well and looking good, making me satisfied that the Robot Fighter is in good hands.

    There's some very interesting and intelligent dialog between Magnus and the Basilisk that compares ideas of religion to creating artificial intelligence. This is one example of how Lante continues to elevate the quality of Magnus: Robot Fighter, rather than write it off as a simple action romp.
