Magic #1 Reviews

Magic: The Gathering #1 came out on Wednesday, and the reviews are streaming in. Most people seem to like it a lot. Here are details from a few of the kinder reviews.

CNN’s Geek Out! made the book its pick of the week.

If you’re looking for something new this week, or just want to dip your toe in and see what the hell all these “Magic” players are always on about, think about giving “Magic: The Gathering #1” a shot.

MTV Geek says the book “Deals a Winning Hand.” 

[F]ull of plenty of propulsive action and a forward, breakneck pace that doesn’t pause for long before jumping to the next set piece… What will distinguish M:TG is its ability to make Dack an engaging lead, and luckily, Matt Forbeck does just that.

At Civilian Reader, Stefan enjoyed the book too. 

Forbeck gives us a good introduction to the series and world(s), and despite being entirely unfamiliar with the franchise, I felt quite at home.

Kitty’s Pryde gives the book 4 out of 5 stars.

The script is solid. Good pacing and with a sense of fun… [M]akes for good reading.

At Muliversity Comics, Walter Richardson gives it 7 out of 10.

[T]he first issue of Magic: The Gathering is a pretty good read. Writer Matt Forbeck gives us all the information we need while still keeping things exciting… It’s fun, exciting, and flat-out looks great. My accolades to the entire team for proving my expectations quite wrong.

If you go out and grab or download it, I hope you enjoy it too.
