This wraps up the first volume of the mini-series. There’s alot in this issue. There’s a flashback to 1966 where we see a young Doctor Fox dealing with a wild. The red headed kid makes me think he’ll be related to one of our cast members, Lena or Danae. There’s Darius and Lena’s escape from Fox’s institution and there’s a surprise ending.

The ending isn’t that surprising, but it does make sense and sets up a very interesting subplot for future volumes. Which I hope there are more. This first volume serves as a launching point. It’s incomplete in itself. Yes, the plot does get resolved, but there are loose ends. It’s an introduction to the characters and the world. It leaves itself open to continuing.

Some people may not like the way the first volume ends, but when realizing that it’s an extended first issue it all works.

Isaac’s art is wonderful. She’s a top talent and her ability shows. It won’t be long before she starts getting top tier work and deservedly so.

Magus #5 receives
4 out of 5

As a 5th issue it’s not the greatest, but when view the first volume as an extended first issue the series works great.
