Spellbinders: Signs and Wonders - Mike Carey, Mike Perkins I'm was excited for this, and it was... okay, I guess. Not badly written, but very quickly paced and with fairly flat characters and in the end it was like a more soulless version of similar high school magic cliques stories (which is saying something when you consider how soulless many of them already were). There's a lot that just doesn't make sense (Are the teachers aware of the magic? Is it an accepted thing?) and most of the rest felt like it would have been better with a bit more time to develop it. The plot just sort of plows from one event to the next with no real sense of building or cohesion, just a massive GOGOGO!!!!!! mentality. If there is more, I don't think I'll be checking it out.
