Introduction: A magical revolution is on the horizon, and those who stand against it face a dire fate. Wizards are weary of concealing their extraordinary gifts, forced to coexist with ordinary folks while refraining from harnessing their powers for personal gain. Madame Albany, the enigmatic catalyst for this change, is willing to overthrow the existing magical order to usher in a new era. With Mark Miller, the creative mastermind behind "Jupiter's Legacy" and "Super Crooks," teaming up with Dike Ruan, the artist responsible for "Shang Chi" and "Spiderman," we had high expectations for this collaboration. Did they meet them? Read on to find out why Image Comics has a new must-read in "The Magic Order 4."

Plot and Storytelling: "The Magic Order 4" blends the enchanting world of Harry Potter with the intrigue of "The Godfather." The narrative unfolds in spellbinding ways, showcasing creative and captivating methods to deal with challenges.

Characters: Among the key players is Sammy Liu, a formidable wizard with a difficult task—eliminating some of his closest friends. Madame Albany is the puppet master, assembling this band of skilled individuals, while Cordella Moonstone's role remains shrouded in mystery, adding to the story's intrigue.

Artwork and Visuals: Dike Ruan's art style harmonizes perfectly with the story's essence. The precise linework plays a pivotal role, especially in scenes featuring multiple characters. Each page feels like a mesmerizing painting, and the transition between Ruan's art and Millar's storytelling is seamless.

Dialogue and Writing: Mark Millar's writing shines, as always. The narrative flows effortlessly, and characters emote at precisely the right moments, betraying former alliances in a world where allegiances are drawn in stark, unwavering lines. While not Dike Ruan's lines, the story harkens back to the old gangster adage, "You're either with us or against us." For a few, the choice was hardly theirs to make.

Themes and Symbolism: The themes are straightforward: true magicians are tired of suppressing their powers for the benefit of others. They intend to change the status quo, though the consequences for non-magic users remain uncertain but likely unfavorable.

Final Thoughts: "The Magic Order 4" embarks on a splendid journey, fusing the mystique of wizardry with the grit of gangster life, evident in their attire and speech. The ingenious ways they handle their challenges make this a must-read for those yearning for something beyond the realm of conventional superhero tales. With a rating of 9 out of 10, "The Magic Order 2" is a brilliant start to a unique blend of magic and mayhem, promising a captivating ride for avid fans and newcomers alike.
