(A/CA) Steve Skroce, Dave Stewart
The Maestro and his entire royal family have been murdered. Now, his banished son from Earth will inherit the Wizard King's throne along with a spell that turns its user into GOD. With enemies everywhere, will this Orlando-born millennial be able to keep his new magic kingdom? From STEVE SKROCE, the storyboard artist of The Matrix trilogy, the artist and co-creator of WE STAND ON GUARD and Doc Frankenstein, the writer / artist of Wolverine, and the artist of Amazing Spider-Man and ALAN MOORE's YOUNGBLOOD. 'MAESTROS is a masterpiece, with one of the best first issues I've ever read. Steve is somehow an even greater writer than he is an artist. Get ready for your new favorite comic.' -BRIAN K. VAUGHAN

This was a really great #1 issue, with bunches of bizzare potential. The next sentence might disturb some of you, but the story gave me a Harry Potter meets It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia vibe. All that, and it's awfully pretty.
Image puts out quite a few mediocre titles, but this is not one of them. This book is, if quality counts for anything, one that will stick to the wall while the inferior titles drip slowly to the floor...where most of the 50 cent boxes live.
Highly recommended for fans of Saga, the Matrix, and particular varieties of fungus that have a hallucinogenic effects when consumed.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
