Magnus Robot Fighter #2
Its all business as usual in the future as our heroic robot fighter tries to save his lady love from certain doom. Today I will be reviewing Magnus, Robot Fighter #2. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
So let’s talk about the book. Magnus battles the cyborg named Big Guns, and manages to escape him. He then heads to the Pens where they are keeping Leeja and other humans captive. Turns out its a huge human smuggling racket. However, we soon find out that Cinette’s father is in on the recket and warns them of Magnus’ presence. A huge battle breaks out but luckily, Magnus’ father 1A manages to convince Leeja’s father to send the police. After a brief scuffle, Magnus frees the slaves and saves the women. Cinette finds Magnus interesting and wants to see him again, much to the chagrin of Leeja. And that’s the book.
So let’s talk opinions. The story is very fast. It really doesn’t stop for a second. Too much is happening all at once. I know I usually complain about slow books but fast ones are a problem too. There’s no time to develop a character. There’s no time to get any insight into their personality or identity. Also, I was never a Magnus fan so this might be skewing my opinion as well. At least the art is phenomenal. (That cover is awesome to look at.) It’s not too big that it takes over the page and takes away from the story. (If only the story was better.) However, there is still plenty of detail in every panel. I seriously hope that this is a Valiant revival and not just a Gold Key revival. And I also hope that they slow it down a little before it crashes into a wall. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
A COMIC BOOK BLOG RATING
|Lots of action. Excellent art.||Very fast and lacking in the personal touch. Can’t really relate to the characters yet.|
