Over in that other universe, the rules of magic have changed, but who would have guessed Marvel would be the first off the block with a series that redefines magic in the Marvel Universe? The company sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek at Mystic Arcana #1, and Mystic Arcana: The Book of Marvel Magic for your enjoyment.

Marvel’s generations spanning magic event Mystic Arcana begins in June, with Mystic Arcana: Magik, spotlighting the popular mutant known as Magik and beginning a series of backup tales that will redefine magic in the Marvel Universe! This extra-sized 40 page issues features two stories: an untold talk of Magik from fan favorite scribe Louise Simonson and artist Steve Scott, while writer David Sexton and artist Eric Nguyen tell the tale of Ian McNee’s quest to gather magical items…before the forces of evil get to them first! Fans may remember McNee from Marvel Fanfare #7, when he challenged Dr. Strange for the title of sorcerer supreme and was bested by the New Avenger.

    dunno whether I should be pleased or concerned that Doc Strange isnow being referred to as a ‘New Avenger’ rather than just plain Doc – but, hey, I’m not complainin’, as long as he remains on the Team.
