    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.

Slater flex.

    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. 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 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.

    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.

    This was genuinely one of the most grotesquely horrid things I could have picked up to read. I really love the original series. It's innovative, it's weird. It has a ton of soul. It takes a group of incredibly flawed, unpleasant people and then it manages to break them and build them up and by the end I couldn't help caring about them. It was good. It had this defined mood. Something that worked for me. This one, though.

Something that worked for me. This one, though. It feels like the writer only read some sort of a short summary without understanding what the hell the original was doing. One thing about the novels was that magic is hard work. You can't just wing it. It's boring and painful and it kill your soul a little. You grind, you make an effort. You have to be precise. You have to be a genius. Yes, even hedge witches. Here we have a group of hedges just being allowed in to Brakebills. Why? Dunno. They don't have to take the exam, which was a crucial point in the novels. They don't have to take endless classes, they don't have to study patiently. They don't get sent to some Arctic hellhole to make them even more miserable. Nah. They "just learnt Latin at a homeless shelter". They just FEEL magic. It looks like a spit in the face for the whole idea of how they gain true power in the books. The magical protection on Brakebills just isn't a thing. Nothing exists. They literally teach battle magic to kids who don't even have the basics, because why not? Especially smart throwing in some kid who supposedly hates that they are even there. "Oh, you hate each other? FIGHT." Brilliant. The relationships between people are laughable. The whole thing starts with people kissing each other's ass and telling each other how lovely they are. Fuck off. The Magicians, the REAL ones had complex ways people related to each other. This one has "yassss, you are so GOOD, YAAAAS". Also insta love left and right. Two seconds of conflicts about it. Which gets resolved like nothing with 2 lines of dialogue. What is pacing? We don't need no pacing. Nor do we need art that looks good in any way. This was unpleasant to look at. The covers made me think this was going to at least be visually okay. Nah, mate. HORRID. So basically shitty characters, done ugly, doing random illogical things, not following the in universe rules, the conflicts get left at nothing, nothing matters, the mood is ass... I wouldn't recommend this to any living being.

    I didn't care much for this, partly because none of the characters were charming or interesting (no investment in their success or failure), partly because I just don't care for the art style of American comics. Makes me think twice about picking up Alice's Story, because although it sounds like it might be really interesting, I don't have much faith that I'll enjoy it.

    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 is a graphic novel taking place some years after Alice and company have left Brakebills. The school is changing in that it is going to allow hedge witches to enter the school which causes trouble between the students that have been at Brakebills and the hedge witches (who they don't consider to be true witches.) What makes things worse is that the three hedge witches are being entered as third year students which, naturally, makes the students that have been at the school jealous.

What makes things worse is that the three hedge witches are being entered as third year students which, naturally, makes the students that have been at the school jealous. One of the traditionalists tries a spell in what the hedge witches consider to be unusable ground and it goes severely wrong. The special group of students is told they will learn battle magic (normally something not taught) and they find the supposedly dead girl very much alive. There's more deaths, the library is robbed and get a lot worse. This is the first of at least two graphic novels if not more. I think it's interesting, especially in the attitude of the traditionalists to the hedge witches, whom they look down upon. Good enough that I will definitely plan to get the next novel(s) in the series.

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 review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Two different schools of magic and magical thought combine to face a common enemy. Students from each school have been chosen to learn battle magic to defend themselves against the threat, but they will have to overcome some stereotypes they hold about one another in order to be effective. Necromancy! Revenge! Possible annihilation!

    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 only picked this book up because I thoroughly enjoyed both the books and TV show and thought graphic novel spin off set in the same world could be fun. This was so far below the mark it's difficult to find nice things to say about this one. If you find this review before reading please take my word. This is not cannon nor is a necessity to read for you to be a fan of the magicians.

    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.
