    I wasn't going to mention this, but I can't just be too nauseatingly positive. I gotta keep these guys on their toes. At least a little bit. I wasn't really a big fan of the theme song thing. It was kinda 'meh'. I get it and everything, but I don't know, wasn't my thing. Other than that, great issue this month. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Cal Cleary May 22, 2014

    Magnus: Robot Fighter #3 is another step on the smart, modern recontextualization of the character, and when you toss in Smith's excellent art in this issue and some quick, clever background worldbuilding, you've got a winner. This issue may have been primarily a single extended action sequence, but it was still one of the week's smartest comics. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 21, 2014

    Overall, it's a pretty smooth issue here that nudges the key points forward, expands others and works with the perception versus reality angle nicely with the robots versus the humans. Definitely a good bit of fun. Read Full Review

    Magnus is a good series and it's getting better every month. We're starting to see some of the larger things in play here, and it appears that Fred Van Lente and company are taking Magnus in a great direction. Read Full Review
