    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 13, 2021

    When all is said and done, Magic #2 builds on the solid foundation of its predecessor without making any of its mistakes. If the creative team can continue to deliver this level of storytelling, readers have a lot to look forward to as this story unfolds. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 12, 2021

    As the cast of characters grows rapidly, Magic the Gathering will likely find itself at impasse to try and keep helping newer fans into the world and to appease the voracious fans who are fully aware of some of the pre-existing dynamics at play. As someone who errs towards the latter, I enjoy the comic and premise. I feel like this issue had a bit more bookkeeping and text boxes than maybe helpful, but it's remains a fun jaunt through a beloved IP. Read Full Review

    Guara's artwork still somehow feels both incredibly busy and somewhat empty at the same time, pairing over-emphasized figures in the foreground with often blank backgrounds. Still, if you're going to do mystery in Magic, Ravnica is the place for it, and you can sense the fun McKay is having while weaving these threads. Read Full Review

    My first overall thought is that I am way too old to be learning a whole universe of characters, places, skills and effects! But millions of fans can't be wrong, perhaps I should some room in my muddled head for this series! It looks like print one may be about to sell out so keep an eye out for variant covers!
