Aimed at new readers and long-time fans alike, Magic #1 will be available in comic book stores in April 2021.
In response to the enthusiastic support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios will provide each qualifying store with one copy of a surprise ashcan that previews the first issue and includes exclusive backmatter, available on March 10, 2021.
‘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 main cover art by Matteo Scalera, variant cover art by Ig 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 hits the spinner rack on April 7, 2021.
