Earlier this year, BOOM Studios! announced that they've acquired the comic book license to Magic: The Gathering from Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro, and the first issue was a major step in the right direction, selling out and being sent back to print. Magic Issue #2 of the comic book series by writer Jed MacKay (Black Cat), artist Ig Guara (Ghost-Spider), colorist Arianna Consonni, and letterer Ed Dukeshire will be released next month, and Comicbook.com has shared a preview of what to expect from the next issue.
According to the preview, Jace Beleren was left in a comatose state and fighting for his life after three assassination attempts on three different Guildmasters. Now the three Planeswalkers (Kaya, Ral, and Vraska) will have to team-up to investigate who's behind the attacks and what their plan is.
Here's the official description for Magic #2:
"With their homes rocked by an attack - and Jace Beleren’s life hanging in the balance - Planeswalkers Kaya, Ral, and Vraska must discover who is behind it all. But as they begin to suspect one of Ravnica’s most prominent Guilds is behind the attack, it becomes clear their enemy may be plotting something even more destructive…"
The main cover of Magic #2 is illustrated by Matteo Scalera (Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn), and there are variant covers by Ig Guara, Daniel Warren Johnson (Murder Falcon), Michael Walsh (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Jahnoy Lindsay (Hulk), and Kael Ngu (Spawn).
