Today, the whole world knows him as Magneto, the most radical champion of mutant rights that mankind has ever seen. But in 1935, he was just another schoolboy -- who happened to be Jewish in Nazi Germany. The definitive origin story of one of Marvel's greatest icons begins with a silver chain and a crush on a girl -- and quickly turns into a harrowing struggle for survival against the inexorable machinery of Hitler's Final Solution.
"Greg Pak has spent years researching Magneto's past, mapping events in his life with true historical accounts of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. The result is a tragic tale that not only respects the horrors of that era but lays down a definitive, sympathetic origin for one of the greatest villains of all time." -- IGN

Nice review of "Magneto Testament"

01.23.12 - Comics > Magneto > This entry's link

From A Book Hunter's Journal:

The graphic novel also includes historical notes and pointers, even adding a section to use the story as a text book. It's more than just a comic book, I should say. It allows us to see the monstrous side of humanity by using something familiar to us.


Massive Greg Pak interview at Newsarama's "Writer's Workshop"

02.22.11 - Comics > This entry's link

David Pepose has conducted what may be the longest interview ever of filmmaker and comics writer Greg Pak for his "Writer's Workshop" column at Newsarama. Here's an excerpt:

I should say this too, all this stuff I'm saying is stuff that I know, but that I have to struggle everyday to actually implement it, you know what I mean? [Laughs.] It's an ongoing struggle to have the discipline to make these stories work the way they really should. To cut out the stuff that doesn't belong, and to invest the stuff that should be there with real emotional truth rather than manufactured shortcuts, and to find the most dramatically compelling fashion to tell the story rather than just the easiest way to tell the story. These are ongoing challenges that I wrestle with every single day, trying to do the best I can and trying to figure out better ways to do it.

"Magneto Testament" nabs Best Miniseries of 2009 from CBR Forums X-Book Awards

01.22.10 - Comics > Magneto > This entry's link

The users of Comic Book Resources' X-Men Forums have voted on their favorite books of 2009, and "Magneto Testament" has been named the Best Mini-Series of 2009. Here's a blurb:

Magneto's past is often glossed over, without much focus, as concentration camps aren't exactly a subject that's explored in depth in all ages comics that often. Greg Pak, though, wanted to go there, and help to explore what it is that makes a guy like Magneto who he is, giving him his truest, most definitive origin story ever.

"Magneto Testament" makes a ComicAttack Top 5 of 2009 list

12.31.09 - Comics > Magneto > This entry's link

"Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak with art by Carmine DiGiandomenico, has been named one of the Top 5 comics of 2009 by Jeff Jackson at ComicAttack.net. Here's the blurb:

One of the best stories Marvel has published ever, in my opinion, like Old Man Logan, featured a character not in his traditional element. This story fleshed out the background of Magneto in the Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz. It was horrible, beautiful, and meaningful. Forget Hulk, this is Greg Pak’s best work.

"Magneto Testament" named Favorite Collected Miniseries of 2009 by ComicList

12.29.09 - Comics > Magneto > This entry's link

Comic Lists's Geek Goggle Year Ender has given the Favorite Collected Miniseries of 2009 nod to "Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak. Here's the blurb:

Normally I don't purchase trades if I own the single issues but this series was too good to pass up on in the collected form and it included a ton of extras in it. The volume had extensive information about the Holocaust as well as some of the items used to research this story. If you did miss this mini series it's probably better to pick up the collected edition because of all of the extras.

YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily names "Magneto Testament" the best comic of 2009

12.23.09 - Comics > Magneto > This entry's link

Anderson at YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily.com has dubbed "Magneto Testament," written by Greg Pak, the best comic book of 2009. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Pak wrote a humanistic tale full of authentic and dark experiences that shaped the Magneto that we know today. It’s an origin story, much like Frank Miller’s seminal Batman: Year One but takes it one step further in crafting a storyline that doesn’t deal with men in tights and super powers.
