Review: I, Mage #1

I_Mage_01-1Into a realm of magic and savagery comes a mysterious boy washed ashore. His is a lone survivor. Befriended by an apprentice magi, her quirky mentor, and a metal golem, together they are Kai’s only hope to stay alive long enough for rescue. Prepare yourself for a d20 RPG adventure with an all new twist.

This continues where the last issue zero left off, as Kai, tells his story to his strange new friends. Of course they try to figure out each other, the world is slowly revealed. Kai seems to be not as lost, as I expected as his understanding of technology is challenged by something more natural. Magic.

The art reminds of old Saturday morning cartoons I grew up on, back when they made things with story. Everything on the world seems to have this vibrant feeling to it as if they are trying to build a real world. The color scheme is in a constant state of flux, as action gives way to story. Settings change from the sea to the forest, and so much more.
