The Magicians: Alice's Story header

The Magicians: Alice’s Story
Based on the novel The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Hardcover
Written by Lilah Sturges
Art by Pius Bak
Colors by Dan Jackson
Letters by Mike Fiorentino
Cover by Scott Newman
Publisher: Archaia Entertainment
Release Date: July 16, 2019

Before I dive into the review of The Magicians: Alice’s Story, I would like to give you a bit of the history of the source material. I was a store manager for a Waldenbooks, but little did I realize how close to the end that company was. In those days we got ARCs (advance reader copies) of virtually everything and let me tell you, that is no small perk. So when an ARC came in that was touted as an adult Harry Potter-esque book about a magical college, I was intrigued. I have some vague memories of starting it during a lunch break and being swept away by the realism of it all. Lev Grossman‘s book grabbed me by the throat and refused to let go. The book became a trilogy, then later a SyFy series that is spectacular in its own way. So yeah, this graphic novel only adds one more dimension to an already breathtaking franchise. Allow me to elaborate!

NYCC Harry Potter Audible Pensieve Experience Banner Image

Audible presented an immersive experience for the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter at this year’s New York Comic-Con. The entire Harry Potter Pensieve Experience is narrated by the incredibly talented Jim Dale, and begins before even entering the enclosed NYCC booth. While waiting in line, the voice of Dumbledore can be heard explaining the Pensieve to Harry. Just before entering, fans choose a vial based on one of six characters – Harry, Hermione, Ron, Dumbledore, Snape, or Voldemort – to be placed into the Pensieve inside. Once a character’s vial is chosen, it’s time to begin the experience.

Book Review: Harry Potter: The Wand Collection

Harry Potter The Wand Collection Banner

Harry Potter: The Wand Collection
Hardcover
By Monique Peterson
Publisher: Insight Editions
Release date: November 14, 2017

“Every wand has a story of its own,” author Monique Peterson begins in her new book, Harry Potter: The Wand Collection. Admittedly, I’m hooked almost immediately. Still, I am not always one for the many informational index-style books published as part of the Harry Potter world. I like stories, depth, nostalgia in my Harry Potter books.

But Peterson does not disappoint, as this book is as visually appealing and easy to flip through as it is meaningful. There is certainly value added in the background information provided, which covers wand characteristics, the wandmakers, Ollivander, wand selection and Harry’s first wand, wand movement, and wand battles.

The Art Of Harry Potter hardcover book cover

The Art of Harry Potter
Hardcover
By Marc Sumerak
Publisher: Harper Design | HarperCollins
Release date: November 21, 2017

Some might call it coincidental. I call it cosmic. Not only do I have the opportunity of writing a review on The Art of Harry Potter by Marc Sumerak today, but I may or may not – by happenstance – be currently cozying up in my comfy chair by the fireplace wearing a Harry Potter-themed tee shirt. It’s getting *quite* magical over here, and I invite you to join me.

The Art of Harry Potter features original art from the Harry Potter films and it is magnificent. Its massive dimensions (10.1” width x 13.1” height x 1.7″ depth) are only outmatched by its heft, which I consider a positive. It evokes the feeling of having access to a large, valuable volume…perhaps something found in the restricted section of the Hogwarts library?

fantastic beasts 2 title treatment

It doesn’t sound like we will be looking for more Fantastic Beasts in the sequel. Instead, fans will be looking at the crimes of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). That’s because the official title of the sequel to the Harry Potter prequel is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

And to commemorate the title’s announcement, Warner Bros. has released the first official look at the cast, including our first look at Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. Check out the image below.
