Before she was Magik, Illyana Rasputin was just a kid whom Limbo chewed up and spit out seven years older. So it's no surprise that, at 15, she wants nothing to do with the X-Men...nothing to do with the New Mutants...and nothing to do with her own powers. It's not even surprising that she runs away... but where - and who - she ends up? Well, that's something you've never seen before.

    What If? Magik packs a novel's worth of story into a single comic book. Read Full Review

    This is too good to be a one-off: it needs to be a monthly or miniseries. The story is the best magical Marvel tale I've read in decades. The visuals capture the mundane world and the magical realm flawlessly. Marvel, make more for these characters with these creators as soon as you can. It's money in the bank. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    The artwork is incredible and both Andrade and O'Halloran excel in creating a unique atmosphere that mashes the worlds of Magik and Stephen Strange together perfectly. Read Full Review

    At its core it's simply a good story that is well written and keeps your interest up while also begging for a feature film adaptation. Read Full Review

    What If? Magik works so well that even big New Mutants/Magik fans will want to see more of this path not taken. Read Full Review

    Festival sorry to the fan of Illyana, but I really hate this character. The first time I encounter her she was a little girl dying of Legacy virus. I read some New mutant with her but without liking her. I don't like much her return in New X-men Academy X, and what follow (My eyes rolled when she was a Phoenix five). Even my who like much of the exiles didn't like the Illyana in the Exiles. So I chose to not take this issue. But I was in the shop with only 3 comics (The rest will by disponible only tomorrow in my other shop), so I take it.
    And I really love what I read. The title is badly chosen because even at the end she isn't a Sorcerer Supreme, but in the road to be. I love that much of the book & the ending was positive for once ( more

    Was expecting to hate this based on the writer and the character, but this managed to be a compelling story nonetheless.

    It's a nice character piece for Illyana.
