We live in a world where we've never seen a monster, and The Magic Order is the reason we sleep safely in our beds. 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 a ...more

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 output has conditioned me to expect the worst), The Magic Or

An interesting twist to magicians.

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 amd most of all, an enjoyable read.

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 magic system, what we’ve seen of it so far. I’m curious to see w

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. So, it apparently worked.

I just think we have rea

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.

This was interesting. Real strong first issue, I think this has a lot of potential, gonna be picking up issue #2 for sure.

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.

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.

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.

The new threat wasn't very subtle, but their met

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.

Thanks to Image Comics for the digital ARC

Millar 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.

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 into place to furnish you with a hazy first image ...more

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.
