    Default What If? Magik (Preview)

    http://www.comicosity.com/preview-what-if-magik-1/
    Before she was Magik, Illyana Rasputin was just a kid whom Limbo chewed up and spit out seven years older. So it’s no surprise that, at 15, she wants nothing to do with the X-Men…nothing to do with the New Mutants…and nothing to do with her own powers. It’s not even surprising that she runs away… but where — and who — she ends up? Well, that’s something you’ve never seen before.

    I bet Strange will respond with something like."No but I'm the only sorcerer who has2

    Been waiting for this.
    I come when there's something to take but I never give anything back.
    I know what you want. But it is not here. It's gone and it will never ever come again...

    I really think What if...? Is still it's best when it examines a world where one seemingly insignificant event is different and the ripples of effect it had

    Love the art and the color. Smells like Mignola and good old fantasy.

    The latest crop of What If issues have been surprisingly good. I love the idea of Magik being the Sorcerer Supreme. It's an idea that I think deserves a mini, but if this can tell a decent story in a single issue, I'll gladly accept that too.

    Feeling quite confident this one shot is bound for "favorite Illyana stories" status.

    Andrade is doing some really rad framing here. I like his rendering of Yana. The narrative is intriguing. And I am LOVING that "I am afraid of nothing but myself" line. SO very on brand.

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this. So far I love the colors and dialogue. Wasn't Ilyana younger than 15 when she met the X-Men? I thought she was 7-8 years old? It's interesting to have her find some sort of guidance later in life.

    15 is the age she was after spending years in limbo

    Perhaps Rover is remembering that teeeeeeechnically when Yana came out of Limbo she was 14(?) but then they celebrated her birthday, like a meager few issues later?

    But I mean, its not like they had calendars in Limbo <shrug>

    Not a fan of the art but I'm liking the story so far.

    I love the cover, and I love it when Illyana does magic. It was great when she was time-travelling to study with Stephen during Bendis's Uncanny.
