Magic #1 Solicitation

Yesterday, IDW released its solicitations for its comics coming out in December. Among many other amazing things, this contained more details on the first issue of the Magic: The Gathering comic book I’m writing for them. While most solicitations are kept intentionally vague, it does reveal a few cool new bits about the book, including the names of the superstar artists working on variant covers: Eric Deschamps and Christopher Moeller.

IDW’s really pulling out the stops to get some top artistic talent on the book, and I cannot wait to see their efforts. I’m proud to be in such excellent company, even if it means I’ll have to work twice as hard to keep up!

Look for the full text of the solicitation after the break:
