    If you like the books, you’ll probably like this. If you like the show, you’ll definitely like this—it hews more closely to the sensibilities of the latter than the former. One thing, however, is for sure: it is, it turns out, vastly superior to Saved By the Bell: The New Class (then again, so is a dried-up slug). BUT—is the original Magicians class superior to the original SBTB class? Whoa boy. Now we’ve got ourselves a contest.

And now someone needs to contract me to write the living feces out of that crossover. I do know this: there are definitely some lonely Fillorian girls (and boys) who would pay 25 cents to watch A.C. Slater flex.

    More like a 3.5. The story was alright, and only improved, especially with the last couple issues. Enjoying the new characters. Liked that it’s a lot more inclusive than the originals and the show. The artwork is pretty, however, is not doing it for me, though. Everything seems pretty hasty. The covers are great. Just wish the interior had a similar style, even if it was speed painting it would fit the cover work better and be a huge improvement imo.

    Set firmly in the world of the Magicians books and not the TV show, it's a new day at Brakebills when a class of Hedge Witches are inducted into the hallowed halls. Of course, that goes about as well as can be expected, with murder, magic, and mischief galore in these five issues. Lilah Sturges and Pius Bak are old hands at Magicians books by now - their Alice OGN was fantastic, and getting a bit more freedom to inhabit the world and craft characters and stories of their own really works in their Set firmly in the world of the Magicians books and not the TV show, it's a new day at Brakebills when a class of Hedge Witches are inducted into the hallowed halls.

Lilah Sturges and Pius Bak are old hands at Magicians books by now - their Alice OGN was fantastic, and getting a bit more freedom to inhabit the world and craft characters and stories of their own really works in their favour. You won't see any pre-established characters here aside from Dean Fogg for obvious reasons, but the New Class are all interesting and multi-layered, so they'll have won you over by the end of the book easily. I really hope we get a follow-up to this one, because unfinished business does not begin to describe the ending. Bak's artwork remains as ethereal as ever. He does a lot with a little, he's a very economic artist, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the gorgeous covers by Qistina Khalidah as well. Unlike Alice's Story, I feel like this volume is probably open to both book and show fans due to the tangential nature of its tie-in. It's its own story, and the creative team really gets to thrive as a result. I hope this is the beginning of a magical future for this team and these characters, I really do.

    The next generation of the Magicians comes in graphic novel format, continuing the story from the successful trilogy created by Lev Grossman (though following the book format - not the successful tv show, essentially an alternate timeline if you will) We meet the three hedge witches that join Brakebills and the new Professor to join with Dean Fogg and his three selected students to learn battle magic and fight against a new threat to the magical order.

My only critiques come from the fact that the graphic novel doesn’t tie in to the TV show, which I felt would have provided far more appreciate fodder for the graphic novel to draw from. I really hope this series continues - because that cliff hanger was not fair.

    This was pretty awesome, but please tell me that there’s a volume 2 coming soon, because wow! What a cliffhanger! Highly recommended for fans of The Magicians TV show and/or the original The Magicians book trilogy, but because it’s a new story with new characters, it’s even possible to start here.

    I really liked the first issue, but from there on the story started to move too fast. I love Brakebills, but for me that's not what The Magicians is about. The TV show had a similar problem where it was more about being a Narnia/Hogwarts where you can die instead of actually looking at the genre tropes and playing with those.

    This comic was so, so gay. I hope the comics hold up better than the other Magicians mediums, because I LOVED this group.

    A fun, quick read. I felt like it was a bit too similar to the original books though.
