Last Days of Magneto


This is issue #18 in the Magneto arc, and this is where I discontinue reading. I’ve followed this series from the first issue and have enjoyed it, but now the story is merging with Marvel’s Secret Wars arc, which is probably a great thing for many Marvel fans, but for me, not so much. I read this and had no idea what was going on. To me it was just a choppy storyline that seemed to begin in the middle of another story, and included characters that I had never heard of before. Frankly, I wish I had not even read this. I would have been happier stopping at issue #17.

As I said, I’m sure the die-hard Marvel fans are loving this. I probably would be too if I were following the various arcs that converged together into this new series. But alas, Magneto was the only one that I was reading, so I will have to stop here. But that’s OK. It will free up some money for me to explore some new graphic novels. I’m open for suggestions. Cheers!

    This one is different from the regular Magneto comic you were reading, right? (It seems like a bunch of comics are all focusing on the “last days” of characters… as if Marvel is going to cull off a bunch of them… 😛 ) I do hate when stories ungracefully get smashed together. I know they do it to sell more comic books, but I think it’s a disservice to the regular reader who just wants THAT particular story.

    • Hi Alex. No, it is actually issue 18 in the arc I was reading, which really annoyed me. It’s like they are merging the storyline with others as a way of making people buy these other issues. Sorry, but I am not going to follow 20 comics just to keep up with one story. I’m way too busy for that, and there are lots of other things I want to read 😉
