X-MEN MAGNETO TESTAMENT #1

Written by GREG PAK
Penciled by CARMINE DI GIANDOMENICO
Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC
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. From "X-Men: Phoenix-Endsong" writer Greg Pak and
award-winning artist Carmine Di Giandomenico.
