Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has unveiled an unlettered first look preview at The Magicians #1, the first of a new five-issue series from Lev Grossman, Lilah Sturges, and Pius Bak debuting the “next generation” of students at Brakebills. From the press release:
Long after Quentin and his friends have graduated from Brakebills, Dean Fogg welcomes a historic new group of students to the school – the first ever class of hedge magicians, rogue practitioners of unsanctioned magic, invited to enroll at Brakebills. But the classical magicians aren’t too thrilled to have the rule-breaking outcasts in their hallowed halls, and tempers flare as the student bodies clash to prove their superiority – not realizing a new danger has emerged to threaten them all. The malevolence behind the threat at Brakebills will rock everyone to their cores – and even shock longtime fans of The Magicians!
THE MAGICIANS #1 features a main cover by artist Qistina Khalidah, along with the first in a series of tarot card variant covers by artist Alexa Sharpe (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), featuring a brand new magician as the Hierophant.
The book is set to hit stores on November 6th, and final order cutoff is on Monday, October 14th. Check out the preview of The Magicians #1 below.
