The Hero’s Final Journey Begins
♦ After its zero issue, Matt Wagner has just previewed a panel from Mage: The Hero Denied#1, out this week in all good comic shops from Image Comics. He has given us the panel in black and white, then in colour with colouring by Brennan Wagner and then lettered so here s a little sneak peek of the new issue courtesy of Wagner’s Facebook page…
Here is what Wagner said back in June about the third and final part of his Mage trilogy:
“This long-awaited conclusion to the epic fantasy trilogy MAGE follows the adventures of the reluctant everyman hero Kevin Matchstick who—after encountering a shaggy and beguiling wizard—discovers he is the reincarnation of the legendary Pendragon and able to wield the power of the mystical weapon, Excalibur.
“The Hero’s journey can be long and arduous… but returning to the world of Mage always feels incredibly empowering,” said Wagner. “I’m really excited to finally be presenting this dramatic conclusion to the epic tales of Kevin Matchstick… and his third Mage.”
