Once again proving that Comicon.com has impeccable taste, Image series Maestros has rocketed back to print for its third issue.
The creator-owned book written and drawn by Steve Skroce (We Stand On Guard, The Matrix Trilogy) is just that good, steeped in a satirical fantasy style with opulent artwork colored by Dave Stewart.
Skroce’s storyboarding credits include The Matrix Trilogy and I, Robot. He also co-created Doc Frankenstein with Geof Darrow and the Wachowskis.
As Image explains succinctly:
In the series MAESTROS, protagonist Willy Little has been granted an unlimited and ultimate power by sheer happenstance when his god-like wizard-king father is murdered, along with the rest of the royal family.
With the all-powerful Book of Remaking stolen by cutthroat thieves—and with Willy being the only one who can open it—it’s starting to look like his reign might be a short one.
Maestros #3, 2nd printing (Diamond code: NOV178105) and Maestros #4 (Diamond Code NOV170774) will both be available on Wednesday, January 24th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, January 1st.
