HICKMAN & OLIVER MASTER MAGNETISM! Jonathan Hickman continues his one-shots showcasing some of Marvel’s best artists! This time, he teams with Ben Oliver (ULTIMATE X-MEN, THUNDERBOLTS) to bring a tale of Krakoan Ambassador and Master of Magnetism, Magneto!

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Jul 15, 2020

    Jonathan Hickman continues to blow me away with his work on the X-Men. Ramon Perez and David Curiel animate every page of this book beautifully, and they capture the very essence of Magneto. This is the X-Men we deserve. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Theo Dwyer Jul 19, 2020

    With massive restraint and elegant simplicity, Hickman and Pérez turn a tale about a man buying an island for a friend into a deep sea epic. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 20, 2020

    Giant-Size X-Men: Magneto is an enjoyable comic book that places the spotlight on one of the most popular characters in the franchise. The trust between Jonathan Hickman and Ramon Perez is evident throughout this issue as both the dialogue and artwork get a chance to shine at various points. That all helped to elevate the interactions Magneto had with both Emma Frost and Namor during this story. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Brake Jul 16, 2020

    Magneto does a favor for a friend and goes for a swim with Namor, but these giant-size issues are less an exploration of the characters they're named after and more about seeding plots for the future. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jul 17, 2020

    As technically entertaining and pretty as this book is, it feels like there should be more substance to a book that claims to be Giant Sized. It's obvious this is setup for something, but it still deserves more resolution than what's given. Not bad, but also not Hickman's best effort. Read Full Review
