Preview: The Entire Plane Of Ravnica Is Threatened In ‘Magic’ #1

by Brendan M. Allen

After a ton of build-up, BOOM! Studios’ Magic #1 finally drops this week.  Aimed at new readers and longtime fans alike, the new fantasy comic book series from writer Jed MacKay, artist Ig Guara, colorist Arianna Consonni, and letterer Ed Dukeshire will be available in comic book stores this New Comic Book Day.

‘Across the vast Multiverse, those gifted with a “spark” can tap into the raw power of Magic and travel across realms — they are Planeswalkers. When coordinated assassination attempts on Guildmasters Ral Zarek, Vraska, and Kaya rock the city of Ravnica and leave Jace Beleren’s life hanging in the balance, a fuse is lit that threatens not just these three Guilds, but the entire plane of Ravnica. 

Now these three must covertly infiltrate the wild plane of Zendikar and form a tenuous alliance to uncover why the targets of the assassins have all been Planeswalkers. . . which will lead them straight to one of the most enigmatic characters in Magic history!’

Featuring the main cover art by Matteo Scalera, and variant covers with art by Guara, InHyuk Lee, and Junggeun Yoon, and a set of Hidden Planeswalker variant covers by artists Miguel Mercado, Taj Tenfold, and Magdalena Pagowska, Magic #1 finally hits the spinner racks on April 7, 2021.

Check out the variant covers and preview art below.
