Wagner’s epic, modern-day fantasy trilogy, MAGE-BOOK TWO: THE HERO
DEFINED continues the saga of the reborn Pendragon, Kevin Matchstick. Pursuing
their common goal of confronting and defeating the world’s hidden
supernatural threats, Kevin and his companions Joe Phat and Kirby Hero find
themselves drawn northward by mystical forces they don’t understand.

heroes, dark and familiar forces conspire to drain Kevin’s own power…and
turn it against him!
Wagner’s classic epic of comics fantasy has been beloved by both old fans
and new readers for decades. MAGE was at the vanguard of the independent comics
scene and continues to be an inspiration for many contemporary creators. With
the release of the final part of the MAGE trilogy, THE HERO DENIED, this series
will be an essential part of any comics library.
