I’ve been waiting for this one for some time. Like the Hernandez Bros. with their comic Love & Rockets, I truly admire Matt Wagner for the continued effort to stay with the one story throughout the decades. I can’t wait to dig into this one.
Here’s my picks for the week:
The Hero Denied: MAGE #1
LEGENDARY WRITER / ARTIST MATT WAGNER RETURNS FOR THE THIRD AND FINAL VOLUME OF HIS EPIC FANTASY TRILOGY—MAGE: THE HERO DENIED! This first full-sized issue begins 10 years after the climax of THE HERO DEFINED and finds the everyman hero Kevin Matchstick at an unexpected point in his life. It’s been some time since he’s utilized his powers as the reincarnated Pendragon, wielder of the mystical weapon Excalibur. Despite his reluctance to fulfill what two different Mages have declared as his destiny, dark forces have gathered to once again force Kevin into action. Throughout these events, Kevin keeps hoping for the same mystical guidance that has mentored him in the past. “Who is the third Mage?!” MAGE: THE HERO DENIED will be a 15-issue limited series climaxing in a double-sized finale. Newly repackaged editions of the previous books from the trilogy—THE HERO DISCOVERED and THE HERO DEFINED—will be released over the course of the new series. MAGE has been a perennial favorite with old and new readers alike for nearly three decades.
Adrian has gone from tormented soul to full-on possessed murderer! And he’s got his best friend Molly in his sights! As blood is spilled and the waking nightmares intensify, Adrian is faced with the prospect of undergoing past-life regression once more. There, he must face Gregory Sutter, the human monster who is tormenting him from beyond the grave. The conspiracy, though, is deepening, as a group of mysterious figures spy on Adrian, watching his every move with sinister intensity.
