Magnus: Robot Fighter #8 is a pretty important issue. Now, I do have a confession to make: I haven’t been following the title for a few months, so I was skeptical as to the level of enjoyment that I would get out of this issue. Would I be able to jump right back into the title and not be lost? Would I still care? The answer to both those questions, is a great big YES!

Steed And Mrs. Peel #5
Written by Anne Caulfield
Art by Ian Gibson

Covers by Ian Gibson
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: May 16, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

You know, BOOM! Studios should’ve just named Steed & PeelThe Avengers“. I mean, c’mon, that’s the actual name of the television show that this comic is based on, so they wouldn’t technically be lying. And it would have sold much better, and then a lot more people would be exposed to this fun little comic. Just a suggestion. This MAY be why I’m not in the marketing field.

I’ve been in love with this series since issue #1. It’s a nice, charming mystery/spy thriller that never takes itself seriously, manages to throw in a lot of humor without turning the book into a comedy, and there’s plenty of cliffhangers, page-turners, and such that make it really enjoyable.

Steed And Mrs. Peel #3
Written by Grant Morrison

Boom Studios
Release Date: March 21, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

I may have stated this in a previous review, but I’ve never seen The Avengers television show that the Steed & Mrs. Peel comic book series is based on. But, after reading Steed & Mrs. Peel #3 I think that I’m going to add it to my Netflix queue.

For those looking for a Grant Morrison story, this really isn’t that. Yes, he did write the book, but this isn’t “Grant Morrison’s Steed & Mrs. Peel!!!”. It’s Steed & Mrs. Peel written by Grant Morrison. What it is, is a charming, interesting, spy thriller with a lot of heart. You can tell that Morrison had a fondness for the show by the way he writes the characters and the story in general.
