ANDY’S PICK :: BOOKS OF MAGIC DELUXE EDITION HC : Timothy Hunter is a 12 year old boy who just maybe the most powerfully magician in the DC Universe. So the magical powers that be–namely, The Phantom Stranger, John Constantine, Doctor Occult and Mister E take Tim on a “tutorial” through the Magical past of the DC Universe, then into the current state of magical affairs, then make a side-line trip to DC’s other dimensions (Faerie, Gem World et.al) and culminates with a glimpse into some possible futures. Will Tim accept his magical role? Neil Gaiman along artists John Bolton, Scott Hampton, Charles Vess and Paul Johnson lead us lucky readers on quite a memorable journey. This is a series I re-read every few years. And it never ceases to amaze me. If you have never read it, you are in for a treat.
