If you hunt and kill a man, it’s murder, but what if it’s a robot with advanced artificial intelligence? To Magnus, that’s murder, too. The Metal Mob’s Capo Andronicus runs a “safari” racket patronized by the idle rich, who pay to track sentient Q-ROBs deep in the lawless Goph Lands. Tonight’s prey: Q-ROB Steelhammer. Even though Steelhammer is a blood-soaked human killer, Magnus cannot allow him to be hunted like an animal. Interfering with the hunt makes Magnus prey as well…dangerous game, indeed. Magnus confronts the Boss of all Bosses, Timur, in a battle for the ages!

  1. I had to comment. Magnus is, by far, the best of the “Gold Key” titles IMO. Jim Shooter gave this book a retro, campy spin and the art was a perfect fit. I had a feeling it would be a huge miss as far as the clever jaded Morrisoney types but I enjoyed it.
    As a whole I guess the “Gold Key” thing was a bust but these 4 issues were pure fun.

  2. I enjoyed these books, but can’t say I actually remember what happened in them. The covers were delectable, however. I didn’t read any of the other Gold Key revivals, but in the case of Magnus I wonder if the sci fi Tarzan riff is just too much of an anachronism for today’s readers to be appealing.
