For those of you are unfamiliar with Magic: The Gathering, it is one of the most recognizable, and widely played trading card games to date. It has expanded into a vast universe of books, comics, and yes, there was even an Xbox Live Arcade Game developed a while back in 2009. Each game consists of players, or wizards, battling each other as Planeswalkers who use magical spells, items and creatures to defeat their respective opponents. Brief history lesson aside, in Magic: The Gathering Volume 1 we are introduced to Dack Fayden, a Planeswalker, and a thief on the run. The story is very fast paced, mainly because when we are introduced to Dack in the city of Ravnica, he’s on the run from a group known as the Thrill, Killers of the Cult of Rakdos. Obviously he’s stolen from them and to evade capture he jumps the plane. For a few quick frames, he ends up in Fiora. Sill a fugitive there also, his visit is short and then he’s back to Ravnica. He stops for a visit with an old friend who heals his wounds before heading to his original destination, his safe house. Once at the safe house, Dack begins to examine the artifact he’s stolen. This is where we find out what type of thief he is, and we get glimpse into his other magical abilities. Upon his examination of the artifacts hidden secrets, Dack is shown a vision from the previous owners’ point of view. What he sees in this vision is devastating, and sets him on a path of vengeance. Overall, this was a really great introduction into the Magic: The Gathering universe. It’s beautifully illustrated; we get a lot of insight into our main character, his motivation, and goals. I really enjoyed stepping into this world and I am really looking forward to coming back. Originally Reviewed at:Mother/Gamer/Writer Reviewer:Me

Dack Fayden is a perfect character with which to introduce newcomers and veterans of MTG to the concept of the Planeswalkers and the Multiverse. Beautiful illustration, well-written setting & dialogue, fast-paced action, and the flavorful wit of Wizards' writers make this a must read for the fantasy fan!

Magic has always been a great amount of fun for me but really its eather you like it or you dont. If you are looking for a first comic book read, though, it depends on if you are that interested. If you really are into something, who CARES if you read it?

Im not sure where i should start. This is my first time trying to read comics and i dont know if this is the first one i should read. Can somebody please help. (By the way, the rating was just a guess. I play the game and i know that its awesome, i figured the comics might be too.)

The sample only has the first four pages which doesn't get you past the copyright page so you can't actually sample the books contents.
