Comic wizards Brendan McCarthy and Al Ewing's original 2000 AD tale of a magical man and his realm-saving exploits is headed back to comic stores as a standalone two-issue miniseries this Wednesday in The Zaucer of Zilk #1 from IDW and Rebellion Publishing. The 30-page first installment introduces readers to an initially amnesia-addled mortal who ascends to a magical realm by way of candy and reclaims his title as the eternal Zaucer... with the help of a both literally and figuratively colorful cast of fantastical characters. Unfortunately for the fame-powered immortal celeb, not everyone is pleased with his return and he must contend with an evil sorcerer who is after his wand. It's the kind of comic that might've helped a teenage Voldemort mellow out, man.From IDW's official solicitation info:
