The Secret Lair Drop Series continues on in high-gear with this latest release that focuses on nostalgic card treatments and guest artists. The most eye-catching drop in this wave is the Saturday Morning D&D. This set features art inspired by the Toei Animation-style art used in the 80s cartoon series produced by Marvel Productions and D&D Entertainment.
Other sets in the drop focus on showcasing the work of known comic book and vintage Magic artists. Jen Bartel, of DC cover art fame (see "DC's 'Wonder Woman Black and Gold'"), and Saga artist Fiona Staples (see " 'Saga' Stands Out at the 2017 Eisners 'Saga'") are each featured in Special Guest drops. Mark Poole, who rendered the art for vintage cards Library of Alexandria and Ancestral Recall, and Dan Frazier, who created the art for the original Moxes, have their own Artist Series sets in this drop. Also, the Praetor set teased back in May is included in this drop (see "Wizards of the Coast Teases a Phyrexian 'Magic: The Gathering' Drop").
