WRITTEN BY: Greg Rucka

ART BY: Nicola Scott

COLORS/TONES BY: Chiara Arena

LETTERS BY: Jodi Wynne

The complete first chapter of the critically acclaimed series from New York Times bestselling creators GREG RUCKA and NICOLA SCOTT, assembled together for the first time! Rowan Black is awakening to the almost unimaginable power that is her inheritance—a power she neither wants nor is able to refuse. But all power comes at a price, and those who seek to destroy her may not be as dangerous as those who wish to control her. Yet when one’s will can alter reality, the ultimate enemy may be the human heart.

 

Collects BLACK MAGICK #1-11, plus additional content, artifacts, and backmatter designed by ERIC TRAUTMANN.

I'm very proud of this one. It's a lovely package: matte finish cover with spot gloss, red tail bands and endpapers, a bound-in bookmark ribbon, and almost FIFTY PAGES of bonus material—interviews, sketchbooks, script-to-page process, prose fiction, and some other fun bits (like the "Preliminary Incident Report" ghosted into the background of the front cover; a careful read shows it's the summary of the events of the first issue).

 

It is rather a hefty tome that honestly should cost closer to $45 or $50, and I hope you check it out.

HOUSEKEEPING

First off, a general update—the Lazarus section has been updated to include the newest stuff (notably Lazarus: Risen #1), and there's been a pretty big overhaul on the Vector Art Store. 

 

Because:

THERE'S NEW STUFF. 

 

As a skills-sharpening exercise, for the month of March 2019, I posted one new piece of vector stock art (theme: reticles) to my Tumblr, and as each one went live, made it available for sale for $1US. 

 

Now that March is over, I've collected the set of 31 vectors -- licensed for commercial and personal use -- and included five additional vectors, not available separately. You can purchase the set ($30US) via my Gumroad store

 

Some preview images: 

I hope you'll check it out, either at the Gumroad link above, or via the Vector Store here. The new set is FM 010: The "Reticle A Day" Collection; a complete preview of each reticle and some sample uses (including the bonus vectors) is available at the above link, as well. (I recommend clicking to the full-screen view.)
