    I am a big proponent of comics teaching and tackling real issues. So I am enthusiastic of Marvel addressing the Holocaust, or the Shoa, especially as it recedes into the annals of modern memory. The fact that this is a great read with great art even makes the case even stronger. Additionally, this series will bring some added depth to Magneto that hasn't been present in this specific regard, since the "God Loves, Man Kills" arc in the 80's. Read Full Review

    This issue is a terrific capsule of the whole project, because it provides everything a reader needs to understand how a young Jewish boy in Poland could grow up to become something as great and terrible as Magneto. Read Full Review

    Only 3 issues in, I’m convinced Magneto may have the most depressing origin in Marvel comics. Pak and Giandomenico nail this issue yet again. Historically accurate, beautiful art, and solid character development are staples every issue.
