    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Apr 25, 2019

    Seriously, I can not sing the praises of this book any more. Whip smart story telling. Beautiful art. Each book ends with just the right amount of tease for the next issue. If you have not read this, you really, really should. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 24, 2019

    Tom Fowler and Brian Churilla really engage the reader with the art in the issue. If the story has a sense of immediacy to it, the art helps move the story forward with scenes that engage the reader in movement and action. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 24, 2019

    It's a slow burn of a comic, but one that's kept moving by its compelling main character and its strong ongoing mysteries. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Apr 24, 2019

    A informative snapshot of the high school experience, set in a fantastical setting once assumed limited to fairy tales. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Adrian Care Apr 24, 2019

    This is one connective piece of a larger, continuing story. But as a self-contained issue, the manic pace interspersed with the police investigation pointing to Tim work well to make this an entertaining, if not in-depth, read. Nothing slows down the cracking pace, not the explanations, set up, or dashed efforts, and you get the clear sense that something's afoot. There's more than enough to draw any reader in. On to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Apr 24, 2019

    It was never going to be so easy as just Tim and Dr. Rose tracking down the missing student.  If only the detour we're given was half as interesting as it seems to think it is. Read Full Review

    Tom Fowler continues to make Books of Magic a stunning comic to look at. In this is he has some fun playing with magic, boundaries, and the comic book form. Read Full Review
