Review: Sorcerority #4

Sorcerority #4

Finding your purpose in life is one of the greatest endeavors of the human spirit. The truth is, most people don’t find their calling and choose a safer path. Many are scared of failure and would rather bet on what is safe. The thing with that is the lack of fulfillment.

Your choices are as much about you as it is the direction you are headed. That is why if you find a way to satiate that desire, it will eat away at you. That is why no one should ever completely let go of what they love, as that passion is part of you. In the fourth chapter of Mikhail Sebastian and George Watson’s elaborate webcomic, Sorcerority, Melanie, finally understands her purpose.

We find Melanie as she watches her family home on fire, this is when she learns how to use her new discovery and untapped power time travel. As we find out what happened after her sister’s unexpected visitors came by and exactly who they are. As each sister faces off against the visitors separately, their abilities become naturally dominant over their interlopers.

Overall, a stupendous chapter that unpacks this world. The story by Mikhail Sebastian and George Watson is great. The art by Sebation is astounding. Altogether, an entry that truly spellbinds.

Review: Sorcerority #3

Sorcerority

There are turning points in a story where it goes form typical to intriguing. This narrative device in procedural stories becomes entrenched. There’s something new to be found in them but it does not mean there is nothing meaningful there. What usually speaks to most is the flaws the characters exhibit.

Take, for instance, Harry Potter, whose life is marred by bad family, family secrets, and awkwardness. All these elements make for a history that’s quite intriguing. This is what pulls most of us into these stories. In the third chapter of Mikhail Sebastian and George Watson’s elaborate webcomic, Sorcerority, Melanie, finds an old family relic which saves her life.

We are taken to the 1863 Civil War South Carolina, where a battle is raging on, and young Black soldier, finds a strange metal rod fall from the sky, as he holds it, he feels something powerful emanating from it. As he faces certain death, the rod empowers him to use it, unleashing an array of supernatural occurrences across the battlefield. Fast Forward to modern-day, and Melanie is trying to grasp what happened in Urban Magica while holding this powerful wand, and two strange men show up, wanting it back. By the issue’s end, Melanie’s family house is on fire, prompting to her ask why this thing is so important.

Overall, Sorcerority #3 is a thrilling chapter that opens the story to more questions. The story by Sebastian and Watson is powerful. The art is dazzling. Altogether, a story that only gets better every chapter.

Review: Sorcerority #2

Sorcerority #2

There’s always that glimmer of light, that moment when you understand something someone has been telling you your whole life. We rarely get to put these things together the way we would like. This is especially true coming from our parents. There’s always a level of cynicism when it comes to advise from those closest to us.

That is why there’s regret when we realize they have been telling us the right things our whole lives. This becomes what is still surprising of adults, is that most cannot concede when they are. Instead, they really should appreciate that moment, because, for most, that is when it matters. In the second chapter of Mikhail Sebastian and George Watson’s webcomic, Sorcerority, Melanie finds outs what hides in the shadows of Excursia as family secrets come to the forefront.

We find Melanie and her friends, gathering supplies for a conjuring spell, which comes up fruitless, except a broken wand with a strange engraving. Their research leads them to Urban Magica, the metropolitan section of the Magic District, to seek out Black Market magic dealers, ones whose reputations would give most, a bit of apprehension. By issue’s end, Melanie, not everything goes as planned, but Melanie finds out that some things left unexplained are better demonstrated.

Overall, a great second issue, that looks to more than add a few tones of sepia but a whole paradigm shift. The story by Sebastian and Watson is exciting and intellectual. The art is stunning. Altogether, this team is looking to show the world there is more to magic than Harry Potter.
