Boom Studios! and Wizards of the Coast have announced a new Magic: The Gathering comic book series.
Physical copies are coming exclusively to local comic book shops in April and digital copies to ComiXology and the usual suspects.
The plot picks up after the necromancer Liliana Vess returns home to become a professor at a college of magic and detects… well, something hidden.
Magic: The Hidden Planeswalker is from screenwriter Mairghread Scott (Transformers, Guardians of the Galaxy), artist Fabiana Mascolo (Firefly: Brand New’ Verse) and letterer Ed Dukeshire.
The plot will pitch Liliana against Tezzeret, the Master of Metal and as not unheard of for Magic: TG plots, the fate of the entire multiverse may depend on the outcome.
Kathleen Wisneski, Editor, BOOM! Studios told the press;
Liliana is everything you could want an ageless necromancer to be: tragic, powerful yet wounded, and drop-dead gorgeous. She’s seen more of the multiverse than almost any other Magic character, so she’s an excellent guide for a story that starts with familiar faces and planes, and ends on the other side of new discoveries.
Mairghread, Fabiana, and Ed are the perfect team to send Liliana on this journey that will surprise and satisfy the Death Mage’s longtime fans, and no doubt make a bunch of new ones.”
