Review:

I’ve seen this comic floating around for years in back issue bins, so I figured I’d get a copy and read it, as Magik is my favorite Marvel hero.

Sadly, this one-shot is pretty disappointing. This is just comprised of reprints of short stories featuring Magik from her era in New X-Men, a series I’ve never been too keen on.

Also, all of the stuff here is collected into a trade paperback that I already reviewed: New X-Men: The Quest for Magik (see here). You might as well just read that, as it features all of this, as well as a bigger story and more context.

I’m not sure why Marvel reprinted these in this format but whatever, I guess it just gets me one step closer to completing my collection of all Magik’s appearances.

Rating: 4/10
Pairs well with: old school New Mutants stuff, as well as the Magik miniseries from the early ’80s and any other Magik-centric story arc.
