A book series, a Syfy television series, and now, The Magicians is getting the comic book treatment from BOOM! Studios. Ahead of the July 2019 release, the publisher has released this first look at the graphic novel by Lilah Sturges and Pius Bak.
Debuting in July 2019, THE MAGICIANS: ALICE’S STORY expands the mythology of The Magicians, the first novel in the series trilogy, through the perspective of the character Alice Quinn before she joins Brakebills and embarks on an epic journey into the magical land of Fillory.
Alice is a brilliant and naturally talented magician who grew up fully aware of the hidden world of magic but whose well-versed parents refused to teach her how to make use of it. So what is an insanely gifted young genius with no guidance or encouragement to do except teach herself? Which is how she winds up a top student at Brakebills College. Alice is at first meek and cripplingly shy until she breaks out of her shell to face deadly magical creatures, devastating heartbreak, and the hard lessons of a magical world where even well-intentioned actions can have brutal and deadly consequences.
“Lilah and Pius peer into the events of The Magicians through the eyes of one of it’s most intriguing and ultimately heroic characters, which opens up new secrets and hidden facets to the already hidden world of magic placed right beside our own.” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “The Alice Quinn we meet at Brakebills is a young woman forged by loss and isolation but there’s no mistaking the strength of will and power at the core of this fan-favorite character who eventually goes on to become the most surprising protagonist in the whole series.”
The Magicians: Alice’s Story is scheduled to arrive on July 10, 2019.
