Magic: The Gathering Volume 1 Comic Review

Posted on December 29, 2017 by Flames

    It’s been a while since I really played Magic: the Gathering. Back when I played I don’t recall there being Planeswalkers. I don’t see myself getting back into the game after reading this first volume either. With that being said I do see myself intrigued by the world of Magic: The Gathering.

    The art here is nice and crisp. Each of the different planes has it’s own feel and they pop off the page. Innistrad especially was beautifully colored. Many kudos to Martin Coccolo for the art and J. Edwin Stevens for the colors. For plot it’s okay. Dak Fayden is a Planeswalker and he has stolen an item and this has caused many people to be less than happy with him about it. Avoiding spoilers I will say that the pacing could have been a bit better, at times the action was overly rushed and I had to force myself to slow down and actually take in what was happening. Parts of the plot also are basic in their execution.

    So, while elements of the story were formulaic in their execution it was an enjoyable read. Fans of Magic will enjoy this. The art is good The story is decent and even as an old Magic fan I see the second volume being picked up in the near future to see what happens next.
