At the feet of the milespires of the Utopian megalopolis North Am, in the shadowy regions where the dregs of humanity dwell, Magnus invades the stronghold of the “Metal Mob”—human criminals who use robot muscle to plunder and terrorize the city. Big Guns, the cyborg mob enforcer, along with scores of brutal Thug-Robs and assassins, stand between Magnus and the “Pens,” where kidnap victims await ransom, auctioning into off-world slavery, or being sold by weight as a protein source to the Arcturians. Leeja Clane and the stunningly beautiful Cinnette, both kidnap victims, are prime material for the chattel trade. In a lawless land, Magnus fights against an army of ruthless killers to save the Metal Mob's prisoners, especially the woman he is quickly falling in love with.
Magnus is back with a vengeance! Written by comics legend Jim Shooter and illustrated by Bill Reinhold, Magnus Robot Fighter is the second act of the an exciting program of comics that includes Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom and the upcoming Turok, Son of Stone!
