Magneto Undertakes a New Mission in Giant-Size X-Men from Jonathan Hickman and Ben Oliver

When Giant-Size X-Men hits stands next year, X-Men fans will get to see Jonathan Hickman’s bold vision for mutantkind unfold in epic adventures told by the industry’s most acclaimed artists. These large-scale but standalone stories will be specifically designed to highlight the artist’s talents, and each issue will focus on a specific character. This March, Hickman will team up with legendary artist Ben Oliver to turn the spotlight on the master of magnetism, Magneto!

Created by Stan Lee himself, Magneto’s been a fixture in the X-Men mythos since the very beginning. Although he debuted in 1963’s X-MEN #1 as the X-Men’s premiere supervillain, he eventually became one of their fiercest members. Under Chris Claremont’s pen, Magneto was equipped with a tragic backstory, shedding light on his motivations and developing him into one of the most complex characters in the Marvel Universe. An unrelenting champion for mutantkind, Magneto once again finds himself leading a mutant nation, but this time, he has all of mutantkind including the X-Men standing at his side. Determined to make this new dream of Krakoa prosper, Magneto must now make dealings with his former sworn enemy— humanity!

Giant-Size X-Men: Magneto will be the second of five essential one-shots with the first, Giant-Size X-Men: Hean Grey and Emma Frost debuting in February. Uniting Jonathan Hickman with the best artists in the industry, these stories are destined to be instant classics that fans won’t want to miss! Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about more Giant-Size X-Men issues coming your way next year and which of your favorite artists will be showcased next!

First Impressions Featuring: A Marvelous Selection!

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s First Impressions where we take a look at a handful of comics in order to discern just how accessible they are for new readers, because every comic could be somebody’s first – and that’s the first question that’ll be answered with this feature. The second is whether you should  start there because sometimes a book could be accessible to new readers but the quality could be less than average, and so each comic will receive a score out of ten based upon Graphic Policy’s typical ten point scale.

Where possible we’ll also be providing  recap of sorts for the relevant story beats up until the issue in question in order to help you figure out if the series is something you’re interested in, assuming we’ve read any part of the story thus far. All comics were provided for review purposes unless otherwise noted.


 

X-Men Black: Magneto #1 (Marvel)
Can you start here?
Yes
Recap & Review:
I’ve been terribly lax with my X-Men reading over the last few years, and as such I really have no idea what Magneto has been up too lately. However, that’s ultimately irrelevant as this comic contains one of the most powerful and timely stories you’ll read in a long time. Bonus, the back up story (that contnues across the X-Men Black series is also well worth reading).
Score: 9.1

Cosmic Ghost Rider #4 (Marvel)
Can you start here?
Yes
Recap & Review: 
So Frank Castle is the Cosmic Ghost Rider? What rock have I been living under that I didn’t know that? A big one obviously. Without recapping the entire comic, because I can’t, this is still an awesome read. And one that’s good enough for me to want to read the previous three issues.
Score: 9.0

Superior Octopus #1 (Marvel)
Can you start here?
Yes
Recap & Review: 
There’s a lot happening in the Spider-Verse lately, and this is just another comic that could get lost in the shuffle. Which would be a shame for any who enjoyed the Superior Spider-Man series. Yes, there’s a lot of Secret Empire references here, but you don’t need to have read that series to be able to enjoy thi. I didn’t.
Score: 8.9

Shatterstar #1 (Marvel)
Can you start here?
Yes
Recap & Review: 
Eh, it wasn’t bad. A lot of words and narration in this issue which actually serves very well in setting the stage for what’s next, but it didn’t really strike my fancy.
Score: 7.2

What If? Spider-Man #1 (Marvel)
Can you start here?
Yes
Recap & Review: 
As with all What If? stories, the only prerequisite here is you know Spider-Man’s origin. That way you can enoy this otherwise largely forgettable story.
Score: 6.2

What If? X-Men #1 (Marvel)
Can you start here?
Yes
Recap & Review: 
As with all What If? stories… yeah. This isn’t worth your time. It’s kinda like the Matrix, but not as fun as the sequels.
Score: 5.2
