Charismagic #0

One thing Iíll say about Charismagic #0, a fantasy comic from Aspen Comics, itís certainly a quick read. Featuring only half the amount of pages your average comic has you could easily breeze through this while waiting in line to pay for your comics.  

While Charismagic may not be long enough to make you buy it will it pique your interest for issue #1? Well, if youíre a fantasy fan and particularly fond of fantasy RPGs, then it could be one to look out for.  

Steeped in the sort of mysticism and magic a lot of fantasy RPGs are thereís a modern twist that could make it stand out from the crowd. A powerful, exiled demon has found a way to return to Earth and is on his way to pretty much bring about the apocalypse. His return is causing other demons and creatures that had been hiding amongst the humans to begin to show their true form, further advancing the march towards chaos. Throw in a Vegas magician and a mysterious druid who always seems to follow bad luck and thatís the basic premise of Charismagic.   

While Charismagicís modern setting gives it some appeal it will have to compete with other modern magic stories like Archaiaís Lucid as its fast becoming a popular setting. I am very interested to know more about Hank the Magnificent and his role in the series and I guess thatís a solid plus for the series. The story is also laid out pretty clearly and is easy to follow, bad guy came was defeated and now heís coming back and thereís only one guy who might be able to stop him. You certainly get a good idea of what the series is going to be about and who the main players will be. 

Khary Randolph and Emilio Lopezís combined art and coloring is quite good. The short issue doesnít get a chance to show off any real Ďwowí pages that take your breath away but it does show a competent team that has developed a look thatís different to the big two Marvel and DC yet is still a very clean and defined style. In some books thereís a problem of characters looking the same and backgrounds losing their definition but so far Charismagic features a high level of detail and variation in character design making it an enjoyable book to look at.  

The main issue with Charismagic is itís so short but donít right off the series completely just wait for issue 1 because there are some potentially interesting characters and very nice artwork in this fantasy series.
