Black Magick 1: Awakening – Rowan Black is a detective with the Portsmouth PD and a witch, two aspects of her life she has struggled to keep separate. Now someone is targeting Rowan, someone who knows her secrets and means to expose her,or worse.
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, 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 around her.
