CBR Review: Magnus, Robot Fighter #2

I recently reviewed Magnus, Robot Fighter #2 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Of all the Valiant books from the past, Magnus, Robot Fighter never really clicked with me. The future never looked too futuristic, while the robots were fairly lame and seemingly unthreatening. As for the lead, he lacked anything close to a personality. So, I was surprised when the second issue of the latest attempt to bring back the book was pretty entertaining. The robots and future don’t look much more impressive, but the story and characterization of Magnus more than make up for it. Jim Shooter writes a pretty solid book with ample back-up from artists Bill Reinhold and Mike Manley."
