Jace Beleren’s Life Hangs In The Balance: Previewing ‘Magic’ #2

by Brendan M. Allen

The next chapter of BOOM! Studios’ new original Magic comic book series drops this week from writer Jed MacKay, artist Ig Guara, colorist Arianna Consonni, and letterer Ed Dukeshire.

Magic is aimed at both new readers and long time fans. As Cesareo Garasa put it in his Comicon review of Magic #1, “One doesn’t have to know how to play Magic: The Gathering or even be familiar with the game to understand what’s happening in BOOM! Studios’ Magic.”

‘With their homes rocked by an attack – and Jace Beleren’s life hanging in the balance – Planeswalkers Kaya, Ral, and Vraska must discover who is behind it all. But as they begin to suspect one of Ravnica’s most prominent Guilds is behind the attack, it becomes clear their enemy may be plotting something even more destructive…’

Magic #2 features main cover art by artist Matteo Scalera, as well as variant covers by Ig Guara, Daniel Warren Johnson, Michael Walsh, Jahnoy Lindsay, and Kael Ngu. Look for it on comic book store shelves this Wednesday, May 12, 2021.
