BOOM! Studios will launch a four-issue Magic: The Gathering miniseries in April, Magic: The Hidden Planeswalker, by writer Maighread Scott (writer of the one-shot Magic: Master of Metal #1) and artist Fabiana Mascolo.  The new series follows necromancer Liliana Vess as she investigates and then must contend with a mysterious planeswalker, one of the most powerful creatures in the Magic: The Gathering Multiverse.

Following the events of the last series, Liliana Vess heads home to return to her job as a professor teaching magic to the next generation.  A mysterious call for help sets her off on a different path, however, and her search for a distant planeswalker draws her into a plot spearheaded by Tezzeret, the Master of Metal.

The comic will be released in April with a main cover by Karen S. Darboe, variant covers by Awanqi, Yanick Paquette, and Junggeun Yoon, and a set of interconnecting variants by artist Miguel Mercado, who is also the cover artist for Magic #11 and #12.

BOOM! launched its Magic: The Gathering comics program in April 2021 (see “BOOM! Gets ‘Magic: The Gathering’”) with an ongoing series, and the one-shot Magic: Master of Metal #1 was published in November 2021 (see “Planeswalker Tezzeret Runs Free in New ‘Magic: The Gathering’ One-Shot”).
