Magic: The Gathering Return To Comics This Fall Thanks To IDW

by Oliver MacNamee

This November will see the return of Magic: The Gathering to comic, after a 4 year break.  Magic: The Gathering: Chandra is written by Vita Ayala (Supergirl, The Wilds) with art by Harvey Tolibao (X-Men, Green Arrow). It features all-new adventures of fan-favorite pyromancer Planeswalker Chandra Nalaar. And the timing couldn’t be better as the popular collectible card game celebrates 25 years!

We haven’t got much more than a cover image and synopsis, below, but that should be enough for hardcore fans for now. Hell, there’s 20 million players/fans out there, so this must be appealing to a large proportion of that demographic, right?

An adventurous Planeswalker and powerful pyromancer, Chandra Nalaar has seen much in her time—but she had never experienced such tragedy before. In the wake of a devastating loss, Chandra is striking out on her own, determined to prove—to her family and to herself—that next time she’ll be prepared. But when faced with threats both old and new, will she be able to overcome her grief in time to survive? And who is that familiar face lurking in the shadows?

Magic: The Gathering: Chandra #1 will be available November from IDW.
