Magic: The Gathering is returning to local comic book stores in the spring. BOOM! Studios has announced that they will be publishing a line of new Magic: The Gathering comics, with the first series coming out in April 2021. Boom's first series, titled Magic, is an ongoing series by Jed MacKay and Ig Guara, and will take readers from Ravnica to Zendikar. The new series will open with the attempted assassinations of three Ravnica Guildmasters - Ral Zarek, Vraska, and Kaya. The three rivals will then have to put aside their differences and travel to the plane of Zendikar, building towards a confrontation with a "major" Magic: The Gathering character. IGN has a first look at the comics series.
“Twenty-five years ago when I was digging through the commons and uncommons bin to build my first deck, I would never have thought that one day I would be handed the reins to the Magic: The Gathering comic, but here we are!” MacKay said in a press release. “I'm extremely psyched to be digging into the world of MAGIC and all that entails, and can't wait for all of you to see what we've been cooking up for you!”
The first issue of Magic will feature cover art by Matteo Scalera, with multiple variant covers featuring different Magic: The Gathering characters. Additionally, BOOM! is also releasing a collector bundle featuring versions of the comic with four covers, including an exclusive variant by Mirka Andolfo.
