What if there was a magical prophecy that you were destined to save the world, and you fulfilled it so young you don’t know what to do with the rest of your life?
Magic. Crime. Romance. Your next favorite comic book series.
“Destiny, NY is an engaging modern love story written with hope and compassion."
-- Terry Moore (Strangers In Paradise)
"It's fucking brilliant!"
-- Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles)
"Destiny, NY comes from the creative team of Pat Shand (Snap Flash Hustle) and Manuel Preitano (DC Comics' The Oracle Code), and tells the story of Logan — a twenty something who’s struggling with the fact that her life might have peaked a decade earlier when, as a 12-year-old, she faced down a magical threat and saved the world. When she falls for the estranged daughter of a magical crime family, it looks like it might be a new beginning for her — if their relationship doesn’t tear apart her life first."
― Graeme McMillan, The Hollywood Reporter
"When Logan’s brought face to face with a mysterious new woman... she starts to suspect that her latest hook-up might have the potential to become much, much more."
― Charles Pulliam-Moore, io9
"If you like THE MAGICIANS (either the book series or the TV series), you owe it to yourself to check out DESTINY, NY."
― Rachel Lapidow, Panel Patter
“I'm gonna say something controversial: Destiny NY is not a comic book, this is a western manga… and I am absolutely freakin’ obsessed with it… It's so good, I was struck within the first 3 or 4 pages... It’s a wonderful, adult read and I’m very, very excited about it.”
― Tee Tetrick, Cover B Podcast
"A dazzling debut. It's romantic, emotional, funny, relatable, and entertaining with a supernatural undertone to boot. We need more of this type of character-driven storytelling in comics that broadens our emotional intelligence. It also happens to be a joy to read."
― Hank Rea, Lotusland
“This book is a cross between The Sopranos and Harry Potter. It's everything we never knew we wanted and now can't do without. Slamming art, masterfully written.”
― Pulp 716: Coffee & Comics
"Destiny, NY might just be the queer magical comic of your wildest dreams.”
― Zina Hutton, Word of the Nerd
Logan grew up in a boarding school for children with magical prophecies, but she fulfilled her destiny so young that she's now having a midlife crisis despite being in her 20s. When she falls for the estranged daughter of a mystical crime family, Logan's new love puts the entire school in jeopardy.
A grounded story about the magic of young adulthood, star-crossed modern romance, delayed coming of age, and finding your place in a world too busy to notice you.
From writer Pat Shand (Snap Flash Hustle) and artist Manuel Preitano (DC Comics' The Oracle Code), this exuberantly youthful and achingly heartfelt ongoing series feels like Strangers in Paradise set in a magical NYC, featuring characters that will stick with you long after finishing this double-sized first issue.
