We haven’t seen an official Magic: The Gathering art book since 1998. That, my friends, is just plain wrong.
Luckily, Viz Media has announced that it’s publishing one early next year, themed around the next Magic set, Battle for Zendikar. And best of all? It includes a ton of new lore written by James Wyatt.
The book will be out on January 5, 2016.
In the meantime, we recently explored how Magic: The Gathering was upping its commitment to worldbuilding and narrative in Origins, and Wizards game designer Shawn Main even teased a bit of what’s in store when our return to Zendikar rolls around. You can check out Andrew’s interview here.
