Synopsis: This 10-issue series begins as a seemingly unconnected series of magical tales about powerful wizards, gradually merging into a legendary saga!

Archmagus Crowley is an expert thief and he gets hired by a mysterious wizard to steal a magical chest from a wizard called Hadrien. In exchange for his services, Crowley is offered a similar weight in gold to what the chest weighs. While Hadrien sails with his chest. He is not aware of Crowley and his attempts to steal his chest. To create a diversion to get Hadrien away from the chest. Crowley and his familiar Jasper, who is a snake must start a fire.

 

The Artwork

The artwork in this book is great. Artist Reilly Brown creates a world that is not so dissimilar to many of the animated fantasy shows that you see on Netflix and any number of animation projects we have seen over the years. I loved the various character drawings of Crowley, the mysterious wizard, and Hadrien. I also loved how well-drawn the action beats were. Especially the ones of Crowley riding on his giant firework and of Hadriens ship being knocked about by rough seas.

 

Overall

This promises to be one of the comic book mini-series that I will likely look forward to each month. This first issue does a great job of introducing the world where wizards are a fairly common occurrence. And it has gotten off to a great start by introducing some truly colorful and flamboyant characters.

This Digital Exclusive Edition includes a look at some of the line drawings from those impressive action beats that you’ll find in the book.
