    Magnus: Robot Fighter continues to prove why Dynamite is the right home for the Golden Key Universe, as though Dark Horse and Valiant have done wonders with the characters in the past, it pales in comparison to this. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I'm definitely a fan of the Magnus and the book itself, but it's felt like it has meandered a bit and a little too far from where it was starting to go. With this issue, we get a bit of that cleared up and a newly refocused Magnus that now realizes more of the lies that make up the foundation of his existence and the reason why those lies were important to be told. There's a few things moving through the storyline to be dealt with and there are interesting points with each of them, but a refocus on Magnus, now with 1A involved, has me excited to see where the book can go next. THis issue has some good stuff to it throughout, though for me it's the second half where it really gets intriguing. It also ends with a fantastic splash page of just Magnus that reinforces how well Cory Smith is suited to bringing this character and his world to life. Read Full Review

    Whao, major reveal in this issue! Plus a Kool Aid reference from H8r, if that doesn't sell you, I don't know what will! This was a near flawless issue, if you're on the fence about continuing to read this series then this issue will keep you around. Support the best thing to come out of this Gold Key nonsense!
