Magic meets the mob in THE MAGIC ORDER, as five families of magicians—sworn to protect our world for generations—must battle an enemy who's picking them off one by one. By day, they live among us as our neighbors, friends, and co-workers, but by night, they are the sorcerers, magicians, and wizards that protect us from the force...

Reviews The Magic Order #1

  • Sam Quixote
    Gob Bluth is why I can’t take magicians in fiction seriously anymore - in the best possible way, because Arrested Development is too damn funny! But y’know what? Surprisingly, The Magic Order #1 wasn’t abracada-bad. Even more shocking - this was written by Hack Millar! Quite the trick indeed. So, despite thinking this was going to be a blatant copy of those pitiful magic/heist Now You See Me movies (years of reading Millar’s derivative ou...

    This is published by Netflix which is kind of strange, no?Promising start at least.

    I am not a Comic Book fan. I don't know who Mark Millar is, and I haven't read a lot of comics to be a fair reviewer. However, I absolutely loved this comic! It is so far very captivating and looks well designed. It is very difficult to write a good story in just 30 odd pages but the Magic Order impresses you. It feels like Harry Potter for grown ups. The comic in a way solves my biggest critique of the HP series that it is more suited for kids a...

    Wow! Impressive! The artwork is super amazing, and the whole book has that Fantastic Beasts vibe which is irresistible. Great story, not the first time I've come across orders and magicians being hunted down but I have a good feeling about this one.
  • Jedi JC Daquis
    The Magic Order has that mature Fantastic Beasts vibe which I'd definitely watch in Netflix.Besides that Facebook AR gimmick in the front cover, I bought this because Mark Millar always deliver a good first issue in his series. The Magic Order is no exception to that. It gives its readers that otherworldly vibe so real that it might just be existing in this world, bit we normal people kuat don't know it. This first issue is solid, smartly-written...
  • Rachel
    An interesting twist to magicians.
  • Liz (Quirky Cat)
    This new series is Netflix’s first foray into the comic book world…and I’ve got to say I’m impressed. They managed to land Mark Millar for the series, who’s done some incredible series in the past (no pun intended there), so it isn’t terribly surprising, but it is nice. This series had no fear of starting out with a bang. Not literally, but it does start with a major move that’ll immediately grab your attention. I also enjoyed the m...

    There were aspects of this I found really interesting, but I just don't have an desire to continue this. If it were an actual TV show on Netflix I might watch it, but as a comic I just don't care enough.
  • Al Young
    I consider myself as big as a Mark Millar fan as anyone, but I am a bit perplexed by the news of more Kick-A** and Kingsman movies being ordered. Surely, we are running out of steam on these franchises. This is on top of Millar partnering with Netflix for what is called the First Netflix Graphic Novel- the Magic Order.I don't really know what that means, my comic shop owner friend said he got traffic for The Magic Order that he never seen before....
  • Amina
    The storyline's really good, the art is beautiful and catchy, it sounds promissing!
  • Aron
    This was interesting. Real strong first issue, I think this has a lot of potential, gonna be picking up issue #2 for sure.
  • Kate
    Amazing mind-warping art (yeah...the clothing caused several back-and-forth page flips), great writing that you is only going to get more complex and insane, and the overall feeling that this is going to be something special.Clever, clever, clever. Roll on issue 2.
  • Chris Thompson
    Great debut issue! It has some shocking violence, cool magic, and the beginnings of strong character development and world-building. The art is also fantastic. I’m excited for this.
  • Lindsi (Do You Dog-ear?)
    It's official... I've seen my first comic book penis. I'm not going to go into details, but it was weird. Not the penis per se, but the shapeshifter impersonating the naked man... Why did he know what that man's penis looked like? Moving on!I think I'm going to read the next issue before making a decision, but I'm still on the fence. I liked the dysfunctional family dynamic, and I'm curious if they end up working together to fight this new threat...
  • Rebecca
    There’s a lot of cliches here but the premise intrigued me and I’m particularly interested in Gabriel as a character. Wish it was a little less hokey with the mask-wearing super villain and the magneto-esque “evil” witch and her coderie, but I’m interested to see where this goes.
  • FanFiAddict
    Thanks to Image Comics for the digital ARCMillar has created a violent and captivating world, full of dark magic and sorcery, that would make Harry Potter turn tail and run. I cannot wait to see what Issue #2 holds and luck for us, we only have to wait a month.
  • Kristin
    Three stars is probably the right rating for this title, but I'm having a difficult time wading through my biases to be sure I'm being fair.I came across a copy in my reading pile. Which was annoying because, despite being somewhat intrigued by it, I had not wanted to buy a copy. Probably not for a good reason, just a business-related thing I read about the title. So I'm trying not to factor that in.The other thing I am trying to not let influenc...
  • Woolfie Silverbane
    I've never reviewed a single issue comic before, and while it feels somewhat incomplete, as a first chapter of a story tends to do, I can't help but wonder how the tale will spin outwards from what is essentially a rather underwhelming introduction. Yes it sets up the world of the Magic Order and hints at a lot that has yet to be elaborated upon but the sensation is more akin to blowing a dandelion, but in reverse. Seeing the pieces dance lightly...
  • Vincent Stoessel
    Millar is a great storyteller and when he is paired with a great artist, it's literally magic. The start of the the next Millerverse classic. Can't wait to see what Netflix will do with this universe they purchased last year.
  • M (aka DarkBeauty73)
    Was looking forward to this mini series ( 6 issues ) and it didn't disappoint. At times I felt a bit lost with everything going on and trying to get all the players straight. Can't wait for the rest of the series.
  • Sonia H
    Si pudiera le daría seis estrellas, me encantó.
  • Vicky Rayson
    Wow. What an opening to a series... Absolutely stunning art and an interesting twist on a familiar theme. I'm already upset that there are only 6 issues of this scheduled to be made.
  • Irene
    Captivating first issue! Absolutely love the artwork.
  • Nick Kordoulas
    Harry Potter for grown ups! Mark Millar delivered another great graphic novel. Can't wait to see it on Netflix!
  • Ben Woods
    Holy shit this is good!Masterpiece, incredible, I have no words, couldn't put it down,Mark Millar has done it again. I highly recommend this book.
  • Gil
    Short intriguing and sweet
  • Wesley V
    Wowwwww this is Netflix’s first foray into the graphic novel world and I’m super impressed.
  • JP Capili
    Bought the comics version. The illustration is beautiful. Not a whole lot happened with this issue. Characters seem familiar as well as the style of writing. Doesn't feel original, but I'm already invested, Hoping for a twist.
