Mythica Issue #1
by Matt Campbell, William Tooker and McLain McGuire
Magnus MacDracken is running around behind enemy lines during World War I in a kilt with a claymore. He has a squad with him of angry Scots, those are rare, dealing mayhem and trying to dodge Germans and Daemons. Somehow, Magnus’ behind the lines shenanigans communicate themselves of a prim young Belgian woman named Kim who is engaged to a Doctor Yosef (psychoanalyst) and the triangle is thus formed. Magnus has otherworldly abilities which I suspect will be revealed in future issues. Volume I kind of leaves us with a hint as a humongous daemon breaks a sword over Magnus back and he is still in the fight, amazing his squad. It would amaze me.
The artwork is awesome, the story is fun and the next thing I want to learn is about the German uniformed dude with the red eyes. The cover states on the bottom “suggested for mature readers” and I suggest the consumer heed this warning. Four out of five enjoyment points are hereby awarded for art, storyline and stepping out on the edge.
