The press release follows:
Media Release — BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and in partnership with Wizards of the Coast LLC, announced today a first look at MAGIC #18, the next issue from acclaimed comics writer Jed MacKay (Moon Knight), artists Ig Guara (Edge of Spider-Verse) and Arancia Studio’s Arianna Consonni, and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Once & Future), about bloody revenge and a desperate escape attempt, available in September 2022.
Tezzeret knows he’s been betrayed… and he’s set his bloodhound, Tibalt, on the traitor’s trail. Now Garruk, Chandra, and Niko are all that stand between Davriel Cane and a gruesome death at Tibalt’s hands. Cane’s agreed to play bait, but insists on a Cabaretti-class production behind him, complete with a guest star Planeswalker who might just give our heroes what they need to find their way back to Ravnica and save Vraska, Kaya, and Ral!
MAGIC #18 features main cover art by acclaimed artist Miguel Mercado (Magic: The Hidden Planeswalker), a polybagged Secret Planeswalker Variant Cover by Frany (The Storyteller: Shapeshifters), and an Incentive Variant Cover by Junggeun Yoon (Immortal Red Sonja).
