Black Magick #9

Black Magick #9 cover

After the explosive ending in Issue #8, Black Magick returns for its last issue of 2018. In Issue #9, Rowan finds herself in the middle of a police investigation after shooting an armed citizen who threatened her life and those around her. Meanwhile Morgan is still convinced Rowan is hiding something as the Aira searches her house as she isn’t present.

2018 needs to hurry up because the anticipation to seeing what happens next is killing me. Events on Alex’s end have hinted several times that the Aria is not the enemy but yet they are searching her home. The demon from a few issues prior is clearly wreaking havoc behind the scenes in Rowan’s life. And the end of the issue another character is revealed and the likes of which definitely makes me wonder what will happen in the issues to come.

Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott are a dream team as they consistently deliver great writing and engaging art. January needs to get here, fast. — Pierre Brown
