The wall between the world of man and the world of magic has cracked. Two realities never meant to coexist are bleeding into each other with terrifying results. Unimaginable horrors that belong there have come here. But as Asa and his gang of thieves and murderers have discovered, horrors from the world of men have entered the realm of magic. And that may prove to be far, far worse.

    Rise of the Magi continues to be a magical series, with the intense story being one I can't get enough of. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kristina Poffenroth Aug 18, 2014

    The other aspect that lends to the comic a youthful feel is the art. The lines in this comic are heavy and it definitely looks cartoon-ish and animated. Betsy Gonia uses a lot of incredibly bright (in my opinion, rather obnoxious) colors, like lime greens and royal blues. The colors stand out, thats for sure. The issue is split into two chapters, and there is a different artist for each one. The sixth chapter was drawn by Tina Valentino, and there seems to be a lot of unnecessary line work happening. It makes the pages really busy and the action a little confusing. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Garry Mac Aug 13, 2014

    Probably the weakest parts are the myth-making magical orbs, terrible punning with characters called Talis-Men, and a series of antagonists that feel fairly flimsy and one-dimensional don't draw you in the way we might expect by the third issue. Yet it's fun and has it's moments, so might be worth picking up if you're a fan of this genre, or if you want to see what Silvestri's up to these days. Read Full Review

    This book is good. It will be great when it overall breaks from convention. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this issue much more than the first two. There is more plot development as we get our first glimpse of who the real bad guys are and not just their cronies. The art was consistent throughout the issue and very pleasing to look at. The plot is starting to pick up and I'm genuinely interested as to where it is heading.
