Magnus Robot Fighter Review, and More Comic Talk

Posted by

The Only The Valiant crew talks about the first issue of Magnus Robot Fighter from Dark Horse and Jim Shooter! Plus, some good stuff we’ve been reading recently, and a nice little discussion of the merit of premise vs. execution.

Plus! Action packed with:

  • Robot ventriloquism (humanity is doomed)
  • Shopping for battle tunics at Macy’s
  • vacuums are not robots!
  • The Mail damages comics…
  • learn the secrets of getting paid to jibber jabber
  • how to be a scab and influence people (or not)
  • No San Diego variant for Magnus. Poor Magnus…
  • Corsets are the secret to character design
  • Mispronunciation is not tolerated
  • Deep discussion of the virtue of 4 vs. 6! 5 vs. 8!
  • Robot impersonations, and tones are not voltages
  • Kitchens aren’t the only place for fridges anymore
  • Fear of submission (and non sequiturs)
  • Beware the Ides of July (no one believes this?)
  • Was Siege just forced, or did it just suck?
  • Hulk would slap down Juggernaut in a minute
  • Without word balloons, it doesn’t count
  • Library extortion, as measured in dollars. DOLLARS!
  • You’d think it would be, but a premise that makes a woman’s clothes explode off every issue isn’t enough
  • Arguments over Watchmen!
  • HA! Give me my million
  • Princess Mononoke, international success!
  • Die cut! Hologram! Double Size! Fancy cover! Special backup! (coming soon)
