It’s interesting the way life seems to create coincidences. Take this comic book, The Tithe #1, for instance. I was just yesterday speaking with friends regarding the way some televangelists seem hellbent on bilking their viewers for every cent they have. Not to say ALL of them are like this, but there have been a notable few that have been caught and (somewhat) prosecuted for their crimes. Well, this comic spins in a slightly different direction.
Prefacing with an ironic quote from Jim Bakker, our story begins in a church on a typical Sunday in California. What seems like just another mega-church singing and giving praise quickly turns into a crime scene, albeit with few people noticing immediately. For you see, a covert group actually perpetrated an almost perfect robbery.

In Eden, a town populated by former criminals looking for a second chance at life, events tend to unfold quickly and the past seems to literally be coming back to haunt the leaders of the community. Written by Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins, with art from Isaac Goodhart and colors from Betsy Gonia, Postal #2 amps up the drama and sheds a monumental light on the history of Eden.
In the first issue of Rise of the Magi a young Asa Stone was sent from the world of Rune to Earth with a small vial of magic. The magic was scratched off the surface of the Orb, an object made of all the concentrated magic that exists in the universe.
Once arriving on Earth, specifically Times Square in New York City, Asa has to find a way to keep the magic safe from the monsters of Rune that followed him through the portal, while also trying to find a way back home.
Think back to when you were a kid and saw The Dark Crystal, or read The Hobbit for the first time. Can you recall that thrill of adventure? Do you remember the electric buzz of excitement you got as these fantastical worlds filled your imagination? If you’re looking for a way to capture the pure joy of wild, magical adventures once again, get yourself a copy of Rise of the Magi #1.
Our story begins with a young Asa Stone, who leads a quiet life in the world of Rune, where everyone has magic powers. Even Asa, though his only ability is fixing magic carpets. Not quite the skill set needed for a life of high adventure.
