Sometimes I think Mark Millar is the closest thing this world has to a real-life Superman, well in terms of his heroic contribution to the comic book industry. It’s not been long since we reviewed The Magic Order Volume 2 which left fans wanting more of the series that can best be described as the supernatural Sopranos meets Jessica jones. Now Mark has volume 3 #1 already hitting the shelves on the 27th July. With a lot of comics, you don’t know if a sequel will be out in a year’s time but thanks to Mark working and the team tirelessly on this it almost feels like a continuous series.Volume 3 of
The Magic Order volume 3 is drawn by Gigi Cavenago who is a multi-award-winning and generally amazing comic illustrator. He’s following on from Stuart Immonen who did the beautiful job of volume 2 and Olivier Coipel from volume 1. I think it’s amazing how each artist has kept to the original style but also brought their own creativity to each panel. I think it’s important to have some creative consistency between volumes and they have done a great job of keeping it all aligned.
In the first two volumes, we were introduced to the American and British members of the Magic Order. In volume 3 we meet the Asian chapter and a new character Sammy Liu who from the first issue looks to have a bit of a playboy Tony Stark vibe.
The first issue has some amazing artwork and a few lines that made me really laugh out loud. It’s jumped right into the story and introduced a few new characters.
Overall if you’re looking for something new this is a good contender. Mark does well at making each new volume a good jump-on point so don’t worry if you haven’t read volume 1 or 2 yet. Although pick this up too if you haven’t already.
