Overview

From Neil Gaiman, the bestselling novelist and creator of the world-renowned comics title The Sandman, comes a mesmerizing tale of the dangers and opportunities of youth, and its endless possibilities.  Illustrated by four of comics' most accomplished artists, John Bolton, Scott Hampton, Charles Vess and Paul Johnson, THE BOOKS OF MAGIC collects all four issues of the original miniseries that introduced the character of Timothy Hunter and set the stage for his continuing adventures.

Timothy Hunter could be the most powerful magician in the world, but does he really want to be?  Guided through the magical world starting at the begining of time by a group of DC Universe magicians, often refered to as the Trenchcoat Brigade (John Constantine, Phantom Stranger, Mister E, and Doctor Occult), they attempt to aid Timothy in his decision whether or not to embrace his gift.  However, by the time Timothy makes a choice, it may have already been made for him.

    Brilliant Mini-series by Brilliant Author & Artists

    All four original issues of franchise are put into one. Possibly better known for his Sandman graphics but, when people ask how I've been introduced to Neil Gaiman, my answer is automatically this. It's about four men introducing a teen named Tim from a broken home into a world beyond our own. All four issues are done by four brilliant artists so each chapter of this story has it's own uniqueness.

    Absolutely magnificent

    I've read it at least for times in a row now and it gets better every time. This is a riveting tale of magic and wonder in which a boy experiences different aspects of magic through adventures with for magical guides. Both the story and imagery are incredible. I also thoroughly enjoyed Roger Zelazny's introduction, a man who i consider one of the greatest fantasy and Sci fi writers of all time. It's a real shame they don't have more of his work on the nook app.
