Behold, the first issue of Maestros, from Image!

Hang onto your mature adult hats, ladies and gentlemen, Maestros is here.
This freewheeling tale of magic is incredibly illustrated and strongly written.

Steve Skroce (writer and artist) and Dave Stewart (colorist) both pull out the stops to provide top-notch comic reading in this first issue.

Here’s the setup; The wizard Mardock has murdered the Maestro and the rest of the royal family. However, Margaret, the Maestro’s ex-wife, and her son have been spared. Willy, the son, has been hanging out in strip joints and doing magic tricks to keep himself in cash. Well, that’s about to change, as he is about to become the new Maestro, the Wizard King!

If you enjoy sword and sorcery, can take a bit of gore and can tolerate viewing adult situations, you need to check this one out, it is a very visually strong book.

Image, $3.99 for about 38 pages of art and story. Mature readers, adult content.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
