THE SWARM. A robotic collective that devours metal and recombines into modular monstrosities. They cannot be destroyed. They cannot be stopped. But screw it, Magnus is gonna try and punch 'em anyway. It's the action-packed end of Arc 1 by FRED VAN LENTE (Conan) and CORY SMITH (Fathom)!

    The Gold Key properties have been entertainingly reimagined by Dynamite Entertainment so far and this issues continues that streak. Action and plot development are given almost equal billing in this series. This balance makes Magnus an interesting book of intelligence and action. Read Full Review

    I do continue to like the pace of the book because even though we're basically on the third issue of Magnus on the run, we've learned a lot and had some decent characters introduced along the way. This issue gives us a better look at the world at large and introduces some big changes in the final pages, first with seeing one of the Goph's and who they are while also allowing Leeja to start moving beyond who she has been and potentially into something else. Magnus, while basically labeled a robot fight, is far more than that and each issue continues to prove that through his interactions with others. He's a catalyst. And through the solid writing and artwork here that builds this world, it becomes more and more engaging and leaves me wanting more to see where it will go next and what kind of potential social and political statements can be made by the work.
