One young wizard’s epic quest to find his uncle leads him… To the beach?

I really like this comic it puts a slightly different spin on the fantasy quest idea while still sticking to at least a few of the rules. Our young Hero Hex has to save his homeland by finding his uncle Salazar but when he does it isn’t quite what he expected. Hex still learns the lessons a questing hero would learn but in a rather more unorthodox fashion.

Salazar is a very cool character he is so laid back as are all the wizards on wizard beach, who live in Tardis-like tents that are far bigger on the inside and spend their days either playing sports or enjoying the views as air balloons. One of my favourite parts of the comic is the extra pages that feature alongside the story these are brilliant and either explain part of the story quickly or are adverts for a range of things a modern wizard may need or need to know like how to play face pinata!

This is a really nice story with brilliant artwork, a laid back attitude and plenty to keep you captivated form cover to cover, but remember a long duck will never swallow a swallow

 

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
