Format: Comic
Magic the gathering, volume 1 is an intriguing peek into an exciting new fantasy adventure based on the popular card game.

First the plot: about a magic thief who can make portals to 'gate' between worlds to steal mystic items. In this issue, Dack seems to be on the run, running from various strange creatures in each dimension he pops into, including some human-like ones. In each reality he doesn't seem to be particularly popular... Wonder why? :Grin.: Dack is chased continuously, until he comes to one dimension where he finds a relic that brings back an unwanted and saddening memory.

I must say the art in this series is really great. Every character is attractively portrayed, and the pencils are really well done. I was impressed actually.

The storyline was a bit less great. Not a lot going on here, except one guy on the lam from bad guys. There is one flashback, with a character-building moment but I just didn't feel much sympathy for the protagonist and didn't feel drawn in. Perhaps if I had a clue who the woman is and what her relationship to the main character was?

While I like the art, I need a touch more plot and backstory to make this a solid entry in the comic scene. Perhaps a few more issues will cement this comic as memorable. The art however is quite outstanding.

5 Stars for art
