IDW Publishing has given us a sneak peek at a rare variant cover for the upcoming Magic: The Gathering comic book. This retailer incentive cover features artwork by Lucifer artist Christopher Moeller, and the comic contains a playable M:TG card — a Black Lotus in every issue! I kid, I kid!
Anyway, the first issue hits stands this December and is penned by veteran game designer Matt Forbeck. Here's the synopsis:
Magic: The Gathering #1
