True Magic Comes at a Heavy Cost in S.M. Vidaurri’s Iscariot
If we’ve learned anything from fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, it’s that magic powers usually have a hefty price attached. This October, S.M. Vidaurri brings us his new Archaia original graphic novel Iscariot, the story of Carson, a young girl living with cancer whose life is changed when she is granted an age-old magic by the rebellious magician Iscariot.
Carson must now navigate her powers, face a life she thought she’d left behind, and take on an order of magicians who want to control her destiny. Carson wants to trust Iscariot, but his intentions might not be as altruistic as they first appeared, and she’ll have to trust her own feelings to decide what to do.
Iscariot hardcover (6″ x 9″, 144 pages, full color, hardcover) arrives in comic shops from Archaia on October 7th with a cover illustrated by creator S.M. Vidaurri for the price of $24.99 under Diamond order code AUG151205. It will be available in book stores on October 13th under ISBN 978-1-60886-761-5.
