Né en 1929 mais emporté par le cancer en 1981 à l'âge de 52 ans, l'américain du nord Russ Manning n'est pas de la génération de l'âge d'or des comics, et son souvenir, notamment en "terre franco-belge", reste ténu.
Il débute sa carrière en 1952, mais dans une époque et une maison d'édition qui n'est pas acquise au star system pour les dessinateurs. "Magnus", qui est en 1962-1963 sa création (dessins et textes, avec quelques apports externes) pour la firme Gold Key Comics, est l'occasion d'afficher son nom, avant qu'il ne devienne, de 1965 à 1979, l'un des dessinateurs de référence du personnage de Tarzan.
Ce TPB regroupe les 7 premiers comic books (trimestriels) de Magnus, imprimés à partir de remastérisations de scans des magazines originaux. Ce procédé, probablement inévitable compte tenu que les planches originales sont, au mieux, dispersées, au pire, détruites, a pour conséquence que le trait si pur de Manning n'est hélas pas toujours fidèlement reproduit.
Dans un peu moins de 2 000 ans, Magnus est un humain orphelin élevé et entraîné dans une base secrète dissimulée sous l'antarctique par 1A, un robot qui mystérieusement se défie de l'omniprésence des autres robots dans la vie des humains et anticipe que ces machines, spontanément ou suite à des manipulations, se retourneront contre les humains.

Magnus Robot Fighter 26 février 2011
Par Bennet Pomerantz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I dont know about you, I loved comics. When I was a kid (about five), I went to the movies in Bronx, NY. These were children shows (old Disney movies, Zebra in the kitchen, etc). After the movie, I was treated to an egg cream (a malted soda). Next to theater was a soda fountain/news stand. They usually had a spinner rack of comics. After I drank my egg cream, I was drawn to the spinner rack of comics. I picked up my first issue of Magnus Robot Fighter (it wasnt number one, but it was an early issue. Since it was Gold Key (and they also published Bugs Bunny and Disney comics), my mom allowed me to get it. That evening, My dad read the comic to me with a joy that he enjoyed reading this non-funny book to me as I enjoyed looking at the pictures.

Its almost fifty years later, Dark Horse has collected the first seven issues of this Russ Manning classic series. The art and the story recaptured my youth. This collection is NOT like today's comic version of Magnus which seems like an overblown art series with limited plot in 17 pages. Each issue of classic Magnus had two full told stories with exciting plots and well done graphics. The bond paper bring out the colors of how comics used to be

After reading this collection of comic stories, you can see the basic ideas of Asimov's classic novel I. Robot (NOT the Will Smith Movie) taking place in comic book pages.

Dark Horse has reprinted some of the classic Gold Key comic of 1960's and 1970's in graphic novel format. Someone should Pat them on the back. Such comics series like Dr Solar, M.A.R.S Patrol (with Wally Wood art) snd Dr Spector recapture in its original form. Classic stories retold so the next generation of Comic readership can savor the past

So when I get ticked at my computer for eating a file, I can picture Magnus beating up another robot

For the fan of great comic fandom or just someone who loves classic comics at a price that wont kill a budget, this one is what to get

Beautiful classic work 22 décembre 2010
Par Babytoxie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In 1962, Western Publishing broke with former partner Dell Comics and began publishing their own line of books. Thank goodness for their pioneer spirit, for without this step, we'd never have had Magnus, Robot Fighter. Magnus was primarily the creation of writer/artist Russ Manning, one of the true grand masters of comics, and now you can experience the first seven issues in the inexpensive paperback collection MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER 4000 A.D. - VOLUME 1. Set in the far future, the populace of the continent-spanning city of North Am is catered to by servile robots - but some robots are ready to turn the tables. Armed with a receiver implant and steel-crushing martial arts skills, Magnus protects North Am's citizens from these rogue robots, as well as from the humans who would use them for their own nefarious ends. Aside from being rather unceremoniously dumped into the storyline in the first issue, the scripting is better-than-average Silver Age action, in spite of the formulaic nature of the stories (yep, he's a robot fighter, and there you go). Magnus' origin is only vaguely defined, but this would be used to great effect decades later when these stories were incorporated into the Valiant Universe. The art is some of the most beautiful work I've ever seen: smooth, solid lines that fit the futuristic setting perfectly. The covers are unique as well, as regular Gold Key cover artist George Wilson painted over Manning's pencils to deliver some truly outstanding images.

I have to give Manning credit for a few more things:

- Setting the story far enough in the future so as to make it timeless. These stories wouldn't have quite the same impact if they were based in the distant future of, say, 2010.
- His unique, and even atypical, sense of future design, such as aircars operated in a prone position, and chest-mounted propulsion packs. He didn't phone these designs in; rather, they are truly inspired.
- The quality of his art. This is not typical Silver Age work. It looks crisp and clean, very modern, and it clearly transcends the norm of the time.

Cheers to Dark Horse for finally collecting their archives in softcover so that more readers can enjoy these classic stories, and at less than half the cost of the original collection. As with their Doctor Solar release, the choice of paper beautifully reproduces the inks and colors, making me feel as if I'm reading the original comics. Keep producing them, and I'll keep buying them.

all evil robots must be karate chopped 26 décembre 2010
Par H. Bala - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What strikes me right away when reading this volume is how fantastic Russ Manning's art looks, his simple yet eloquent lines. I'm a big fan of artist Steve Rude's retro style, and Russ Manning must've been one of Rude's great influences. Manning's stints at the Tarzan strip and MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER - which he created and drew and wrote - count among his very best works. It sucks that the man passed away at only fifty-two years of age. But Tarzan lives on. Magnus lives on. Long before Skynet gained sentience and John Connor became humanity's last hope, Magnus was filling that role quite capably, thank you very much.

In the 41st century, in the vast city of North Am which spans the breadth of a continent, the robots do everything for humanity, thus leaving man entirely at his leisure, become soft and contented. The robots operate from a primary mandate lifted straight from Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics: "No robot may harm a human, or allow a human to come to harm." Except that the vagaries of chance and freakish evolution must be observed. In 4000A.D. rogue robots rebel against their core programming. They seek to enslave or exterminate humanity. Ergo, Magnus.

Trained from infanthood by a wise old robot to become humanity's champion, Magnus may wear a skirt but he's no lily-livered pansy, not when part of his moniker is "Robot Fighter." Entirely human but wielding steel-smashing hands, a righteous temperament, and an implanted receptor which allows him to eavesdrop on the robots' radio broadcasts, Magnus quickly became the bane of tyrannical machines everywhere. Although, as sometimes happens, there's a messed-up human pulling the strings on these killer robots. One such heel is the mad scientist Xyrkol who, in this volume, vexes Magnus on three occasions.

MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER 4000A.D. Vol. 1 collects the first seven issues of the series originally published quarterly by Gold Key Comics in 1963. If you've only ever read Magnus from the Valiant title in the 1990s, yes, he goes back a few more decades than that. These seven issues may lack in rich characterization - Magnus himself is often written stiff as the robots he fights and the beautiful redhead, Leeja Clane, is pretty much your token damsel in distress - but these issues are marvelously action-packed, with Magnus karate chopping a diverse line-up of vile robots. There's a malevolent automaton that resurrects each time Magnus destroys it. A robot that thinks like a human, but an amoral one. Another that's twenty stories tall that rampages thru North Am City. Malev-6, the monstrous machine planet. Magnus even tussles with a murderous robot replica of himself. In one issue, a cyber-plague threatens to infect North Am's robot population. In another, something is sabotaging the undersea food banks. And, just to demonstrate that Magnus isn't all powerful, he runs into robots composed of a super-hardened metal alloy which even Magnus's steel-smashing strength can't dent. This story had the Robot Fighter at his most vulnerable.

Magnus's missions deploy him to the depths of the ocean and the bowels of the earth and on to the deepest recesses of outer space. Russ Manning's sci-fi world-building is impressive and imaginative. Sinister robots aside, the look of North Am is appropriately Silver Age-y, very clean and striking and infused with a sense of optimism. The Legion of Super-Heroes would be at home here.

And, okay, fine, it's not a skirt Magnus wears but a "ceramic-durium tunic." It still looks like a skirt. I just hope they wear undies in the 41st century.

Pity Ultron should it ever cross paths with Magnus. Pity the Daleks, as well. And even those Fembots that Lindsay Wagner ran into. Because Magnus, Robot Fighter has steel-smashing hands, brother.

archival Gold Key comic series volume #1 19 mars 2011
Par Laura A. Fitzgerald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Magnus, Robot Fiighter of the year 4000 AD has always been one of my favorite comic book heroes as far as I can remember, and my own collection is crumbling from eager overuse issue to issue, cover to cover! But your copy of this prominent volume is a truly genuie lifesaver, although it doesn't have the Aliens companion series in addition to the special fan contributions including the late Woody Wally's sketch of a visor-faced security robot! Please have your next volume include those installements as bonus features in the near future, okay? I'm looking forward to the next volumes after the one in this review - thanks for helping me!

Love the printing 12 décembre 2012
Par Sam7768 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have to thank another reviewer who complained about the paper quality and color, and also the respondent who explained why it is that way. To me that was a huge selling factor. I really miss and prefer the older pulp paper and the way the color looked. This volume captures that somewhat. The paper isn't glossy and the color isn't fancy. It's brighter and more primary. On the downside, sometimes the color can be so dark it obscures the drawing detail, but to me it's more than a fair trade-off. I enjoy reading Marvel essentials and DC Showcase, and I've noticed that when I manage to compare an original comic, the colors often do obscure the details of the underlying drawing. Still, I wish more reprints looked like this. The only choices we usually have are "no color" or super bright colors on glossy paper. Even the blacks look glossy. I have to say that reading these reprints like this really had me imagining how these must have looked to comic readers back in 1963. I can see why the series is remembered so fondly.

As for the art and story. Wow! I knew about Magnus and Russ Manning, but I guess I never took an interest in him. I also bought some Tarzan reprints, but it seems obvious to me that Manning really put his heart and soul into Magnus. The whole story, concept, and execution all work perfectly together. I always thought Magnus's outfit looked silly, but even that works in the context of the comic. Beautiful. Gorgeous. I hope if they ever make a movie of this, they retain all of the smooth,sleek "Jetsons" 60's quality. They probably wouldn't though.

Now I'm even actually tempted by the hardbacks, but they are a bit too pricey. But I'll definitely be on the lookout for any price drops, or paperback editions.
