    All of it is coming to an end. A few more issues and the last chapter of Mage closes. While it's not present within the script or art elements, there is an air of solemnity here. Because it means that as Kevin and the others ready themselves, it's going to be over soon. Almost too soon. Read Full Review

    With just a few more issues in front of us the sense of everything really coming together is front and center. Both Magda and Kevin are aligning everything they need to be ready and engaged with events while we also see why the Gracklethorns are idling a bit in a way that makes sense. It's a good book just in seeing the parent/child dynamics play out with the mix of magic and how they each treat their respective kids. Wagner's artwork and the color work continues to be strong and there are some really great pages throughout, particularly the whole Merrow piece for me. It continues to be a very fun book.

    An interesting story, but it felt a little too short in general. This is a Hero Saga, and we haven't gotten to the Hero piece in general. The book reads a bit slow, possibly due to the slow build up of consequences ( of which now seem very loose in the hands of the Mother. As much as, I was a bit bewildered, there is a lot of groundwork laid down for an epic showdown for Good vs Evil! Read Full Review
