When Hexley Daggard Ragbottom sets off to find his Uncle Salazar, he expects to find the most powerful wizard of the modern age. Instead, he finds Uncle "Sally " only wants to kick back, relax, and stay clear of any kind of wizard politics. So how is Hex supposed to become a great wizard if all the adults are too lazy to teach him? Shaun Simon (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys) and Conor Nolan (Jim Henson 's The Storyteller: Giants) present a humorous look at magic, family and just kicking back.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 5, 2018

    There isn't much in the issue that speaks to a larger conflict for Hexley and Salazar so there isn't much to glean from this issue about where the overall story is going, but it looks like a fun ride. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed Wizard Beach. Its a familiar enough tale which manages to feel new and vibrant and different at the same time. Theres a lot of fun to be had and a lot to discover in here if you take on board the books main theme and just slow down and notice the world around you. Read Full Review

    Reading Wizard Beach is a bit like going on a new ride at Disney World. It’s magical and eccentric fun with a bit of juvenility. This isn’t a comic you should take too seriously. It’s more of a beach read. Read Full Review

    Perfectly campy, Wizard Beach left me laughing out loud more than once. though the issue lacks a substantial plot, the title still manages to be heartwarming and charming. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Dec 7, 2018

    Wizard Beach #1 is not a bad read, but it did not grab me as much as I thought it might. The awkward dialogue sounded off to my brain, and the little subplots didn't feel as though they belonged. I get that there are big conflicts between the wizards who've left for the beach and those who stayed behind, as well as Hexley and adults. But there really isn't any explanation for them yet, and they felt more obligatory than as something that grew from plot. Read Full Review
