Discover the Infamous Master of Metal Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before in November 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 20, 2021) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), with Wizards of the Coast LLC, announced today MAGIC: MASTER OF METAL #1, a special one-shot issue from acclaimed comics writer Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade), and acclaimed artists Jorge Coehlo (Rocket Racoon), French Carlomagno (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and Jacques Salomon (Kadath), colorist Francesco Segala, and letterer Ed Dukeshire, featuring the infamous Master of Metal, Tezzeret, and igniting a spark of events that will ripple throughout the Multiverse!
When the fate of the Multiverse is at stake, what game will the scheming Master of Metal play? Tezzeret of Esper, the cruel artificer now free from his former master Nicol Bolas, the God-Pharaoh of Amonkhet, has traveled across the Multiverse seeking the answer to a question only he knows. Once he finds it, he will manipulate anyone necessary and do whatever it takes to claim his prize… but to what end?
“I’m thrilled to be writing in the MAGIC comic book universe with the new one-shot MASTER OF METAL! If you feel a cold prickle of dread crawling up your spine, don’t worry; everything is going according to plan.” said Scott.
MAGIC: MASTER OF METAL #1 features main cover art by fan favorite artist Junggeun Yoon (Seven Secrets), variant covers by artist Adam Gorham (The Immortal Hulk), and a connecting variant cover by artist Miguel Mercado (Mighty Morphin).
“Tezzeret is one of those cerebral villains who’s got plans within plans. While Mairghread and our ingenious artists take readers through just a few links in his diabolical Rube Goldberg machine, MAGIC readers will be amazed to see how many of Ravnica’s current misfortunes Tezzeret set in motion,” said Kathleen Wisneski, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “MAGIC fans who already love to hate Tezzeret will appreciate the smart exploration of his psyche; and anyone new to MTG will understand why Tezzeret is one of the most popular characters in a vast multiverse.”
