    Magnus continues to punch hard. Van Lente and company have been building up Magnus and it now looks like we're starting to get into the real meat of the story. Some pieces are starting to fall into place, but there are still plenty of questions that will keep you coming back for more. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 9, 2014

    Magnus: Robot Fighter has a lot going on in each issue and it's great to see how Van Lente and Smith handle bringing it out. This issue is a bit different than the first four because it is so dialogue heavy, so much sitting around conversational material, that it works with smaller panels in order to do it. That gets to be a bit overwhelming as you go through it at times, but there's a lot of little bits of nuance to pick up on through both the dialogue and expressions that you really do want to take your time to savor it. It's a solid issue that advances the overall narrative while offering plenty of little tidbits that enhance the world and the situation more. They're shaping up an interesting setting here that leaves me wanting to know more and to seeing how far the big picture goes. Read Full Review

    The sprinkles of comedy are what elevate this series. This also gets very deep when Leeja finds out she does not know her birthday. My only criticism is that I imagine Magnus would act a little more desperate to convince his wife he's her husband.
