Marvel Comics has already announced Strange Academy #1, but today, we get a video trailer (for a comic book) featuring the work of Skottie Young and Humberto Ramos.
With the threat of mystical mayhem looming on the horizon, Doctor Strange enlists the magical elite to help him found Strange Academy – a place where students of any background can come to study under the planet’s most powerful mages. Can these young sorcerers learn to control their supernatural talents, or could one of them prove to be an even greater threat than what Strange has been dreading!
“It’s gonna be big and fun and magical and weird and exciting and all the things you want out of a Marvel comic,” promised Young in a press release from Marvel.
“The greatest thing about working at Marvel is that you get to give life to the characters you grew up with, those who inspired you,” said Ramos in the same press release. “Today we have a chance to bring a new set of characters that will hopefully inspire a new generation , and it doesn’t hurt when you can do that alongside one talented as hell friend, does it?”
Magic has changed and is more powerful – and dangerous – than ever, and Doctor Strange is forced to do what he’s avoided for decades: he’s opened a school for young sorcerers…but as they will soon learn, magic always comes at a cost.
Strange Academy #1 arrives on March 4th, 2020.
