Description:

Issue 1

"The Magician", Part One. The members of the Disciples are introduced and include A young girl who discovers her incredible powers are also something else - uncontrollable; a failed entertainer who holds the secret of stopping the pending onslaught...but no one will listen; an ancient old woman who struggles to hold everything together and wonders what will happen to it all when she is gone; a mystical tarot card reader who dies...yet, again. They join the rest of the members as they gather to take solace in the death of one of their own. But the Knights Templer are keeping a watch and have plans for members of this group as this mysterious organization is on a mission to resurrect one of the ancient gods. A plan that if it comes about could very well mean the destruction of the world.

Overview

So, you think you know the truth about magic? Wicca, Voodoo, Chaos, Tarot...call it what you will...but it is much different than believed. This isn’t the old school of speaking in rhymes and staged theatrics, there are fundamental elements at work that are so powerful, so dangerous and cosmic, they threaten to tear the very fabric of reality asunder. But who guards us against this impending onslaught? The Disciples, a misfit group of new school and old school seers, magicians, and wielders of the Black Arts whose own internal politics pose as great a threat to their survival as any outside influence.

Reviews

"Smart, sharp, and dynamic. The Disciples is one of the most impressive debuts I’ve seen in a long time." - Katherine Keller, Sequential Tart

"I’m really impressed with the total package of The Disciples. This is really a promising debut to a series and if they keep this up, I think this may be one of the next big, talked about series from Image." - Greg McElhatton, iComics.

"What is required of me as a reader is to keep up with this exciting and powerful series! Like I said before...WOW!" - Paul Dale Roberts, Jazma Online

"A contemporary story of warring magical societies, the comic is thoroughly researched, skilfully told and expertly drawn. Reminiscent of early Vertigo (but without the angst), THE DISCIPLES is a prime example of intelligent, dynamic comics." - Ninth Art, Role of Honor for Best New Series.

"...hook you into the story with rhythmic, contemporary dialogue and intelligence that exudes from every pore." - Ray Tate, Line of Fire Reviews

"The combination of art and colour-work in the title marks The Disciples as different in a market where certain styles proliferate, or where the mainstream streamlines, this art is distinct." - Remote Induction

Very promising series for the first two issues. The authors take their time to introduce the characters and from the very first page there's an atmosphere of mystery and danger hanging around. Sadly the series seems to have been shafted in a rush. [...]

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
