Présentation de l'éditeur

In the year 4,000, the human race is threatened by robots bent to enslave mankind, and only one man has the power to fight back — Magnus, Robot Fighter!These beloved tales of science-adventure first ran in 1963 and 1964 and have influenced countless writers and artists throughout the decades. Created by fan-favorite Russ Manning — famous for his spectacular work on the Tarzan newspaper strips of the sixties — Magnus, Robot Fighter was something of his "Tarzan of the Future," and Manning's run on the series came to be known as a classic in science-fiction comics. This volume reprints the first seven issues in the original 1960s Magnus, Robot Fighter series, with unparalleled art by the legendary Russ Manning, a foreword by Mike Royer, and retouched interiors scanned from the original comic books. Join Magnus on his quest, as he proclaims, "My task will not be completed until I have smashed every evil robot that is hurting mankind in body and soul!"

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.

Squeee! Magnus is back! 3 janvier 2005
Par Ian Fowler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As most people know, DC Comics has had their archive program (hardcover reprints of older comics) for over a decade now. Not only has DC archived their big guns characters (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman), but they've also gotten their lesser characters (Sgt. Rock, Doom Patrol), the characters they've acquired (Blackhawk, Shazam) AND characters they've licenced for the simple purpose of archiving them (the Spirit, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents). Given this nice bit of diversity, I took it for granted that at some point, DC would also get around to archiving the characters published by Western/Gold Key. Imagine my surprise when it was announced that Gold Key's work would be archived, NOT by DC, but by Dark Horse!

Not that I'm complaining, of course. It's great to see "Magnus: Robot Fighter, 4000 AD" and "Doctor Solar: Man of the Atom" in some format. And Dark Horse isn't so unlikely. This is a company that built itself on licenced properties (rather like Western), and has itself begun a variety of reprint programs. So, they've entered the arena. Good for them.

Like most readers my age, my first exposure to these characters, including Magnus, came in the early 1990s, when they were acquired and published by the now-defunct Valiant Comics. I did get on board somewhat late, when the whole of the Valiant line was beginning its slouch towards despair, so to speak. I did enjoy "Magnus" for a while. However, my decision to read this Archive volume has more to do with my interest in Silver Age comics. I am quite pleased that I did.

For those coming in late, Magnus is a denizen of the year 4000 AD (or AD 4000, as is correct), a time where all of the citizens of the continent-size city North Am have become complacent and entirely too dependent on robots. Raised by the very first robot, Magnus was taught how to fight evil robots, his body honed until his strength could smash steel. And for the seven issues contained in this volume, that's exactly what Magnus does, battling corrupt robots or corrupt humans who use robots for their own nefarious purposes. At the same time, he forms a tight bond with Leeja Clane, daughter of a senator, herself sick of robot control.

The big draw here of course is that great artwork by Russ Manning. The line-work is absolutely clean, tight, and vibrant. Further, the designs of the robots, the costumes of the humans, and the city itself, demonstrate the vibrancy and imagination Manning possessed.

Manning wasn't a slouch in the writing department, either. Each story exhibits an excellent grasp of pacing and drama, as well as ingenuity. The villains are also legitimate threats. H-8, the corrupt robot controller of the pol-robs (police robots), Mekman, the human who wants to be a robot, and Xyrkol, Magnus's most persistent foe, all present complex challenges that draw the reader in, as we watch and wonder how Magnus will inevitably beat them. It's difficult to zero in on one favorite story. All are excellent examples of why this series attained its classic stature.

However, due to thematic concerns, there is a certain of repetition in the stories. Manning's central theme was wariness of technology. Thus, Magnus often intones dire warnings about how lazy man has become, how dependent on robots man is, and how man should always be prepared for the day when the robots revolt. The stories, naturally, follow these predictions, as Magnus battles malfunctioning robots, infected robots, and megalomaniacal robots. It's fortunate that Manning new how to write an entertaining story, because the formula might have worn thin.

Someone else has griped about the quality of the reprint. Granted, the colors are not as vibrant as they could have been. However, I'm not sure if that's Dark Horse's fault. Having looked through some of the original comics, I don't think Gold Key had great coloring process to begin with (compared with DC, and, much later, Marvel). Granted, Dark Horse could have re-colored the series. Still, that's really a minor quibble, and in no way impacted my enjoyment of the series. If nothing else, the original covers, nearly all painted art, are included, and like most GK covers, are all gorgeous.

Dark Horse has planned only three volumes, encompassing Manning's work. This seems limited, since this series did continue beyond Manning (not much, but still). I'm also looking forward to the "Doctor Solar" hardcover, and the further volumes of "Magnus". Terrific stuff.

Dark Horse Does it Again 8 mai 2005
Par Gord Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
You could pay hundreds of dollars for a pristine copy of volume one of Russ Manning's 1963 Gold Key sci-fi comic, Magnus Robot Fighter. Or you could get this beautiful, color, hardbound Dark Horse edition of the first seven comics, not for the retail $50, but for a much lower Amazon price. Baby Boomers will remember Manning's ground- breaking classic, which everywhere raised the bar for sci-fi comics, but newer readers who may have discovered Magnus through the many later comics and graphic novels editions, will also be delighted to discover the original source.

Manning is known for his work on Tarzan and other comics, and his art in Magnus is a delight to the eye, with a sweeping painterly style reminiscent of Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon comics. Unheard of at the time, he was also allowed to sign his comics for Gold Key, the later comics imprint of Western Publishing, which had also published Dell comics.

NorthAm, the continent-spanning city of the 41st century, is completely run by, and completely dependent on, robots which obey a variant of Isaac Asimov's three laws of robotics. Forseeing this dangerous trend, a Yoda-like robot named A1 (does that sound like AI?) raises an orphan human named Magnus to fight robots should the need arise. He trains his body as a well-oiled machine until he can deliver karate chops with "steel smashing strength." For various reasons, some robots turn against humans and try to destroy NorthAm, often in the employ of a human dictator, and Magnus is called out as a man on a mission. In the style of early 'sixties sci-fi, Manning always closed with a moral, that we must never become too dependent on technology, and that it is meant to be the servant of man.

Manning created a host of intriguing robot designs (some of them resemble Ideal's Zeroids), and this book includes all seven original Gold Key covers (without the text), as well as a brief bio of Manning and Foreword by Mike Royer. Now when so many comics and cartoons are spun off from licensed properties, it's amazing to think that in his designs and stories for Magnus, Manning created an original hero and unique millieu that are still inspiring today.

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

The first metrosexual Sci-Fi action hero 29 novembre 2004
Par F. Scott Valeri - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Hard to believe but good things were occasionally going on in comics not produced by DC or Marvel in the early 1960s, and this series is definitely one of them. I loved the clean-lined , realistic Russ Manning art as a child, and am more impressed with the stories as an adult. Each issue was a 27 page tale, with no chapters, that reads like an hour long Star Trek TV episode. Not much character development, but well thought out plots and action. Magnus is Tarzan of the future fighting evil robots, not apes. And wearing his trademark hot pink mini-tunic and white go-go boots! (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) The boots were actually a colorist's mistake that stuck. Gal pal Leeja is one of the most beautiful heroines in comics. Each page is portrayed almost like a Sunday comic serial such as Flash Gordon or Prince Valliant. Great stuff and very different from Marvel or DC at the time. Do not miss this fantastic collection of the first 7 issues. Reproduction is a little disappointing but not enough to hinder the appreciation of a true comic art master, Russ Manning! Lets see all 21 of his issues in print in this format!

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.
