  • I ve always enjoyed reading about a Witchy Woman, so this was right up my alley Add to that all the beautiful artwork with the mostly black white palette that pops with color at just the right times Perfection for me, anywayOk, since this was the first volume, there is a lot of backstory that s left unexplained But.There s a ton of very interesting stuff that s hinted at as part of the origin story of these ladies, and I can t wait to find out about their past Or maybe not necessarily their pas [...]


  • Black Magick is gorgeous If I could, I would spend hours upon hours by just slowly going through this first volume, time after time This is an exceptional work of art, and this alone is a reason to purchase this as an physical copy instead of digital version I will give full five stars to Nicola Scott for crafting such a pleasure for my eyes.Black Magick is a fine mix of witchcraft and police work whereas the focus is on the clinical detective side than of the lurking evil First volume lets loo [...]


  • Actual rating 4.5 stars Don t mind me, I was obviously drunk as a crayfish a little tipsy when I first rated this volume.Okay, let s be disgustingly honest here I would never have picked this one up had it not been for Greg Rucka of theMost Luscious Lazarus Series GRotMLLS Because I m stupid like that I mean, I m a big fan of exquisitely subdued colors You know, stuff like this And like this So you give me something like this And I m like Pretty much.BUT This was Greg Rucka And Greg Rucka I slig [...]


  • Sweet I haven t been this excited about a Greg Rucka comic book since Gotham Central Whiteout Like those two minor classics, Black Magick is a crime title with a twist, though in this case the twist is witchcraft rather than superheroes or the ice of Antarctica like them, it feels a bit like a cheap but surprisingly good 70s genre flick despite the occasional computer screen So yeah, Rucka was the reason I picked up Black Magick, but boy will I also be on the lookout for Australian comic book ar [...]



  • Buh wha Greg Rucka wrote a GOOD comic What am I saying, I m losing my edge Noooo NO credit where it s due and Black Magick was great Goes to lie down Rowan Black is a homicide detective on the Portsmouth PD and she s also a witch Magic be real, witches After a series of grisly ritual killings, she begins to suspect she and her coven are being targeted by an unseen enemy Can she stop them before they destroy her Well Oh, I guess we ll find out in the next volume or so Returns from lying down, won [...]


  • I liked this a lot, a really fast read, a page turner, with very good writing and strong art to match from Nicola Scott Rowan Black is a cop for the Portsmouth PD and she s also a witch, part of an area coven But she wants to keep these two aspects of her life separate, secret from each other There s a lot of magick related bad stuff going on, seemingly targeting her as witch they have to figure that out, clearly, hopefully without blowing Black s magick secret life And a lot happens in the firs [...]


  • Received from Netgalley for review Really interesting I ve liked most of what I ve read by Rucka, so I requested this book without really investigating what it was or what it was about I probably would have requested it anyways It s a blend of police procedural and Wiccan flavored magic, and at least in this volume, it works rather better than it probably should Main character Rowan Black is a cop, and a witch, and she s being hunted The question of who, or what, is hunting her and why is the ce [...]


  • I would like to thank NetGalley and Image Comics for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Introduction Now, I have been reading graphic novels that usually have a mixture of different genres within a story and most of them were pretty well done as it is quite unusual and rare to see two different genres existing in the same story So, when I heard so many good things about Greg Rucka s Black Magick Volume One Awakening graphic novel, I just knew that I had to give thi [...]


  • Haven t read any Rucka for a while, so I was anticipating a rush of the old magic from this dude even though he seems to have let the air out of the tires on Lazarus when is he delivering volume 4 already Oh it s been out for months already Well shit, now I m the asshole a role I m well familiar with.I love the opener was beginning to worry Rucka had lost his droll sense of humour, gotten a little too deep into Portlandia lifestyle.LOVE the sparse use of colour Why don t books do this I ve noti [...]


  • Also available on the WondrousBooks blog.The first issue of Black Magick got its deserved spot on my Good list It was intriguing and it looked like it will lead to something bigger and even better However it did not The entire volume lead to one single evil pawn of someone evil that we have no idea about, except that they, well, exist.The problem I had with the entire volume is basically that Some of the single issues don t even have a villain We see one crazy, possessed guy and one demon like [...]



  • Nicola Scott provides some great art here, expressive black and white work that features specific, sparse splashes of color when magick is used Story wise, although this first volume is mostly a lot of set up, Greg Rucka uses his time honed skills at writing police procedurals and strong female characters to put together a decent crime occult combo that promises interesting things to come as Detective Rowan Black struggles to keep her identity as a witch a secret as an occult conspiracy grows ar [...]


  • Greg Rucka writes one of my favorite lady detectives Dex from his series Stumptown So this series, Black Magick, which features a female detective, Rowan Black, looked particularly interesting because it combines the procedural world of being a cop with the world of pagan magic.First off, Nicola Scott s art draws me in, with her distinct characters and uncanny ability to make characters who are inherently sexy without sexualizing them There s such a clean, almost filmic translation of the realit [...]



  • Voil Maybe my favorite new series.My buddies said I should buy something else, because the cover has a shitty kind of 80s look DWhat a compelling argument I bought it anyway since I already read the first pages and sensed some potential here And the main character doesnt look as weird as on the cover throughout the book imo The witch theme combined with the intriguing crime story works really well for me and the art is especially interesting when it gets witchy than detective y.I can t wait for [...]


  • I m a big fan of Rucka s writing Lazarus is a brilliant series so was really looking forward to this one It s a very interesting mixture of police procedural with elements of magic and the supernatural Portsmouth police detective Rowan Black is a practicing witch who slowly becomes involved in a series of weird, seemingly inexplicable events First, a man takes hostages at a local burger joint, insisting that he ll only talk to Rowan She agrees to go in and talk to him, if he ll free the hostages [...]


  • I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.This book follows a woman named Rowan Black, who by day is a Police Detective, but she is also keeping a deep dark secret as she is in fact a witch Things start becoming strange once she ends up in a hostage situation and the man lets the other hostages go in exchange for her He knows her name, and her secret real name and he knows what she is At that moment he tries to kill her by setting her on fire, but she m [...]


  • 3.5 stars, rounded up for potential It s the kind of urban fantasy I really like, there wasn t anything for me to criticize about the story It was just a little slight If I had been buying each issue as it came out I think I would have been pretty frustrated, since it felt like the entire volume didn t have much meat It was because there were a lot of things that had to be introduced, so we only got to see a little bit of each opening storyline and how they are going to intertwine I can start to [...]


  • Loved it, great crime story mixed with witchcraft Rucka does a great job telling the story of Rowan Black a cop who practices witchcraft I like that he anchors the story telling from the police perspective and balances it Rowan s personal story The art is damn near perfect, Nicola Scott is super talented Her skill at drawing the human face is something to marvel at, seriously impressed The story follows Rowan as she works on a few strange cases that seem to be targeting her but the mystery is ye [...]


  • Rowan Black, a bona fide modern day coven affiliated witch slash Oregon police detective, finds herself targeted by a secret, magick wielding shadow society Their activities draw the attention of a menacing, self appointed witchcraft oversight organization.Rucka s two favorite themes are present tough, smart women and riveting crime mystery And he s in top form It s gripping and funny and scary, there s a ton of plot space to explore, I want to know about these modern witches, I want to know a [...]


  • Un gros gros coup de coeur pour ce comic qui est merveilleusement illustr en plus, le choix de la couleur est int ressant, un genre de s pia, qui met en valeur les d tails et donne une atmosph re vraiment sp ciale, magique , l histoire.


  • I received a copy of this book through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review 3.5 to 4 stars A fairly good read, containing the first 5 issues of the Black Magick series Portsmouth P.D Detective Rowan Black is also a witch, one who meets with her coven to practice rituals, and she definitely doesn t want this other part of her life to bleed into the mundane one Until a perp reveals he knows so much about her but she s never met that man, so what s happening, who s after her, and how far are [...]


  • I liked this a lot, but I want Reminded me a little of Charmed and a little of Witch Hunter Robin Hard to say what is going on, but I can tell you this book is about witches and the occult I like how the witches were handled in this as well Plus there is a guy named Morgan in thisn t go wrong with a Morgan Maybe the best thing about this comic book was the art Loved the black and white with only magical parts with color Made this book fun too look at as well as read.


  • Really liked this one Love Scott s art and she can draw the most beautiful eyes You can see how Rebirth Wonder Woman was influenced by Rowan s appearance Story is fairly straightforward with some minor noir touches and fair helpings of mystery and the occult Certainly left me with questions and wanting Thankfully issue 6 has recently been printed


  • A really strong first trade that does enough to interest me for without giving too much away Also, I love the fact the book is in black and white, with splashes of color only when some magicky stuff is going down It s an excellent way to show what the world looks like to magic users.


  • An interesting start I like all the setup looks like a confrontation for the ages is brewing My only issue and this is weird spelling magic with a k at the end has always rubbed me the wrong way.Similar titles Rachel RisingSleepy Hollow




  • This was my first graphic novel in a while and I picked a great one Really gripping story, interesting characters and beautiful artwork I can t wait until I m able to get my hands on the second volume
