This bold and energetic graphic novel is definitely worth the short time it takes to read it. Wiz is a young mage who is serving an internship with a cranky brute named Mug. This unlikely pair learns to appreciate their combined strengths when thrust into a deadly basketball game with the powerful ruler of an ancient temple.
I loved the bright, dynamic art style, as well as the humor and originality in this series-starter. I mean, why wouldn’t you want to read a story where someone responds to being the target of a flaming arrow by erecting a magic shield that turns the arrow into a delicious hot dog as it passes through? An utter delight.
