Magic TPB Out Today!
The Magic: The Gathering trade paperback (TPB) hits stores today. This collects issues #1–4 of the Magic: The Gathering miniseries I wrote for IDW, with gorgeous art by Martín Cóccolo and handsome colors by J. Edwin Stevens. See below for a preview.
I had a fantastic time writing these comics, and I’ve had even more fun working on the next miniseries in the line, Magic: The Gathering: Spell Thief. I just saw the proofs for issue #2 of that, and it features one of my favorite moments in the series so far. It’s one of the most painful for Dack, the hero, but hey, he can take it.
Abhinav Jain (a.k.a. Shadowhawk) has a review of those first four issues over at the Founding Fields. As he says:
A fast-paced and thrilling ride that is a fantastic introduction to the world of Magic: The Gathering. Dack Fayden has arrived and he’s taking names! … Matt Forbeck’s Magic: The Gathering mini-series is a highly entertaining read on all levels, and I’d recommend it to everyone.
Anyhow, you should be able to find the book at your local comic shop or just about anywhere else that sells such things. Enjoy!
