In response to my Armada continuity overview regular poster Leonardo asked about an Armada publication I skipped called Convocations. The reason I skipped it is because it is not a story. As you can see, it bills itself as "A Magic: the Gathering gallery" and that's just what you get: a collection of 23 art pieces. Some by Magic artists, others by comic book artists. Since there isn't a story, nor much else to review I was going to skip it. But I guess I should've at least mentioned what this product actually is, since it has a tendency to pop up on lists of Magic comics. So... I now have! But if I'm doing an actual post on it, I might as well show you some of the art.
|Most of the arts are actually card combo's. This is Braingeyser + Underworld Dreams, by Mike Dringenberg.|
|This is Pete Venters' Lhurgoyf + Rocket Launcher + Nevinyrral's Disk + Spoils of Evil + Songs of the Damned combo. More of a general deck synergy really.|
Some more arts behind the cut.
|Lord of the Pit + Breeding Pit by Douglas Shuler.|
|All Hallows' Eve + Fallen Angel, by Gerald Lee.|
|The cover of Ice Age #2, by Charles Vess.|
|One of the most classic combo's: Thicket Basilisk + Lure, by Brad Marshal|
|Ron Spencer's Bad Moon + Breeding Pit. I think one of these guys surrounding the Pit later turned up in his version of Monstrous Growth.|
|Lich + Mirror Universe by Stu Suchit.|
|Bird of Paradise + Regeneration + Instill Energy + Stasis by Denis Calero.|
