Logan grew up in a boarding school for children with magical prophecies, but she fulfilled her destiny so young that she's now having a midlife crisis despite being in her 20s. When she falls for the estranged daughter of a mystical crime family, Logan's new love puts the entire school in jeopardy.  
A grounded story about the magic of young adulthood, star-crossed modern romance, delayed coming of age, and finding your place in a world too busy to notice you.  
From writer Pat Shand (Snap Flash Hustle) and artist Manuel Preitano (DC Comics' The Oracle Code) with an incredible limited-edition cover by Terry Moore more

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Apr 2, 2021

    'Destiny, NY' #1 is a supersized launch for Black Mask Studios' first on-going series and it couldn't have gone better than this dazzling debut. It's romantic, emotional, funny, relatable, and entertaining with a supernatural undertone to boot. We need more of this type of character-driven storytelling in comics that broadens our emotional intelligence. It also happens to be a joy to read.  Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener May 12, 2021

    The story of Destiny, NY, sounds straightforward. Logan is trying to navigate love and life with no sort of plan. Magic aside, what young adult cant relate to that? Readers should be rooting for Logan to succeed, to find her place in a world that tells her she doesnt belong anymore. And to some extent, I was rooting for her. Unfortunately, the art and lettering issues and the somewhat disjointed storytelling kept me from fully appreciating Logans journey.  Read Full Review

    A refreshing slice of life comic, with hints of a mystery underneath. The supernatural Harry Potteresque aspect is the least satisfactory, although it doesn't undermine the story, and the main characters are given plenty of life. Looking forward to reading #2.
