    The Magic Order continues to be classic Mark Millar; a high-concept idea, well written and executed by the perfect artist for the material. Don't be surprised when it joins the ranks of other Millar properties ('Kick-Ass', 'Wanted', and of course, the core concept of Marvel's 'Civil War' crossover that led to the MCU's'Captain America: Civil War') that had an impact in and out of comics.

    THE MAGIC ORDER #3 is an absolutely fantastic thrill ride, full of in-depth characterization, a complex and interesting plot, and some of the best art in the medium. Writer Mark Millar and artist Olivier Coipel have hit this issue out of the park, and I cannot wait to see what this series' finale will bring us. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Aug 15, 2018

    The Magic Order is seedy and twisted take on the fantasy genre that was sorely needed. Albany's story itself is the perfect metaphor for how Mark Millar is tearing down the uniformity we see in most stories revolving around magic. Issue #3 was everything it needed to be and has seemingly raised the stakes at the right time. I'd really like Albany to have a bit more complexity to her, but there isn't much to complain about. I just want to sit back and enjoy the show. Read Full Review

    Not for the squeamish, or the uninitiated. Those unfamiliar with Mark Millar's work might be in for a shock, others, well, you know what you are getting yourself into. The Magic Order has thrills aplenty, of a certain kind, if you dare. Read Full Review

    Another great entry for Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel here. I really appreciate that there's always so many new aspects of this magical world to dissect and devour. We're getting outstanding battles, and impressive character building. The Magic Order should be on everyone's must-read list, because there aren't any signs of its momentum slowing down!
