For those who are not familiar with Michael Hague’s art, fantasy illustration is what he best known for – with the artist illustrating classics such as The Wizard of Oz and The Hobbit. His art is simply beautiful and fitting of a fantasy narrative. As you will see in the preview below, the art is textured and detailed with an earthy, yet vibrant, wash of colours. This style is what makes Eye of Newt a unique comic series that stands out amongst the rest.

So what is it about? Eye of Newt chronicles the quest of a young apprentice wizard, along the way meeting all kinds of wonderful and magical creatures. Based on the preview alone, there will be plenty of dragons and giant birds present in the series. Finally, throughout his journey he will discover a dark secret, which could change his destiny forever.

If you are a fan of The Hobbit, or someone who likes to admire gorgeous fantasy art, then Eye of Newt will most likely be a series that will appeal to you.
