Comments: Mandrake does stand out in her outfit. The color and design of her hair and her powers grab your attention. You can tell she has power. Mandrake and her BFF LJ are fighting to protect innocents against these creatures.
Mandy now is a cute girl with a voice in her head Alruin’s and that fight with creatures may have just been a dream. So things are not what they seem for Mandy. Magic though is in the air.
Mandy is your typical seventeen year old teenager well accept for the whole magic thing.
The art does delivery some wonderfully expressive facial expressions. The art is beautifully presented as Mandy practices leaning magic. The colors are amazing.
This issue needed to explain more about Mandrake how did she get these powers and when and why does she want them? Who are the creatures after her? Some more action would have been nice to see and less teen angst. Overall this is a good introductory issue.
Mandy aka Mandrake is a cute girl with potential.
