A perfect jumping-on point as Magnus: Robot Fighter begins an all-new story arc!  Having finally reunited with his robotic father, Magnus has new purpose in life. But that doesn't really matter if "dad" starts him off on a suicide mission! It's Magnus: Agent of 1A!

    With a great twist end page, Magnus has a pretty strong issue here overall as events are taking shape more. We've had a few issues where the story has kind of wandered a bit, but it's starting to pull the strings together more here. The sense of revolution has been brewing for awhile in NorthAm and now Magnus, and hopefully Leeja, will bring it to the forefront to try and enable some real change. How they handle understanding the reality of what NorthAm really is should be interesting, but there's a few steps left before that to deal with. Magnus' time is definitely good here and I'm even more intrigued by Leeja now after seeing her younger days. But it's the Central Network that I want to see more of – just with a better font for its speech bubbles as that got hard to read at times. Read Full Review

    Another great issue. This new artist doesn't quite measure up to Cory Smith, but he's still good. What's really cool about this issue is this darker side of Magnus beginning to emerge, I love to see characters pushed in new directions.
