    Overall, I think this is a killer issue. There isn't much more I have to say about this chapter other than I think it's pretty great, but you probably gathered that already. Read Full Review

    What I find absolutely astounding though is that Mark Millar does not simply import and insert powers and spells that he's seen in movies, shows, and comics. He introduces us to completely unheard of possibilities and includes the most enticing new aspects to powers that we are somewhat familiar with. Then, you got Olivier Coipel aka Mr. Stay Low and Keep Firing, who is bringing all of these astounding new tricks, grand scale spells, and marvelous magic to life. It was widely believed that this comic would blow critics and fans away, and here we are picking our jaws up off the floor with every turn of the page. Read Full Review

    We learned a lot about certain characters motivations this issue, At this stage, the main villain is for me the biggest curiosity" How did she leave the order and why does she wear that full leather head mask? I have a feeling we will learn soon enough"Can I get a time eater to eat the time between now an the next issue? Read Full Review

    This was another highly enjoyable issue of a comic that's quickly becoming one of my favorites. The Magic Order has a ton of potential and so far Millar and Coipel are delivering one of 2018's most engaging and exciting reads. Read Full Review

    This is a strong second issue that carries the story forward a little bit. My one slight criticism is the fact that we don't really know enough yet about the other Moonstones. But we do know why the murders are happening. Read Full Review

    THE MAGIC ORDER #2, while suffering a minor lack in characterization, does succeed on almost every other level. This is a magically fueled thrill ride full of fun and intensity, as well as some stunning art by Olivier Coipel. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jul 23, 2018

    'The Magic Order' is the real deal. It really is where "magic meets the mob" and why it's so engrossing. Millar, Copiel, and Stewart sacrifice nothing in this thrilling new comic. What it lacks in characterization it makes up in ingenious action and art. This is shaping up to be a monster title. Needless to say but it's a must-buy.  Read Full Review

    I was never a huge Doctor Strange fan, even Harry Potter never really did it for me, but this feels like Image took those elements and made it for adults and I’m on board the magic train. Read Full Review

    The Magic Order opens with one of the most bizarre sequences written by Millar in years before continuing to confuse crudity with maturity. Read Full Review
