    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jun 4, 2014

    Gabriel Hernandez Walta's art is nothing short of gorgeous. To be able to draw Magneto shopping for groceries and make it justas compelling to look at as the full page spreads of his past mayhem is atruly art. You add Jordie Bellaire's talent for coloring on top of that and what you have is an issue that subtly changes moods while offering readers the same strong story that they have loved so far. Last but not least is the lettering by VC'S Cory Petit that quietly enhances each page and knows when to break up sentences to make them stronger. It's just another facet that goes into this comic that makes it one I'm always looking forward to. Read Full Review

    Magneto #4 read like a bit of a filler issue. But this new chapter gets the wheels turning again as regular artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta returns and Cullen Bunn ventures into his next big story arc. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jun 6, 2014

    There's a minor dearth of content that weighs the issue down, but what there is retains the same smooth writing that's made this series such a hit. And with Gabriel Walta back on art duties, and a new character to discover, there's some great content here. While it lacks the punch of the first arc, Magneto remains one of the tensest and most skillfully realized comics in Marvel's arsenal. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 11, 2014

    Although I liked the idea of Magneto walking the Earth like Caine from Kung Fu, Briar's introduction does open the comic to several new possibilities. The introduction of an unknown quantity not only gives someone for Magneto to interact with but offers an ongoing mystery about her motives. I'm on the fence about giving the reader much more information about the girl than the title character receives, but I'd suspect Magneto has his own suspicions which will serve him well. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Watsonian Jun 6, 2014

    The last page of this book offers an interesting twist, although its one that was highly predictable. It does leave the reader questioning whats next. Bunn spins a compelling yarn with this page, upping our anticipation for the next issue. Although this issue had its weaknesses, the next arc looks like it should be as strong as the first arc for this series. Read Full Review
