marvel’s Strange Academy is back in session as the publisher announced a new Strange Academy: Finals ongoing series launched in October.
Announced at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) on July 22, Marvel’s Strange Academy: Finals is a new sequel series from writer Skottie Young and artist Humberto Ramos. Strange Academy: Finals will follow Doctor Strange’s students on another adventure as they near the end of their first year at school. The synopsis reads: “THE FIRST YEAR IS ALMOST OVER! Ever since day one, people have been wondering – who is the savior of Strange Academy and who can bring it all down? The future of Marvel Magic will be decided here and he’ll take MUCH more than the Sorcerer Supreme and his school if magic has a chance!” Preview of the pages revealed at the SDCC for Strange Academy: Finals shows Scarlet Witch talking to Doyle Dormammu, Toth, and other students when Guslaug, a Frost Giant from Jotunheim, enters.
Strange Academy #1 debuted in 2020 from Marvel Comics. Created by Young and Ramos, the series is set in a supernatural school for youngsters created by Doctor Strange (before his untimely death in The death of the doctor). Other teachers at the academy include Brother Voodoo, Magik, Scarlet Witch, the Ancient One, Hellstrom, and many more, all of whom are dedicated to teaching students the arts of magic and mysticism. The synopsis for Strange Academy #1 reads, “
A WIZARD SCHOOL FOR THE MARVEL UNIVERSE! The Marvel Universe has mysteriously changed in such alarming ways that Doctor Strange has done what he’s been avoiding for decades. he opened a school for young wizards. Young people with magical abilities from around the world have been brought together in New Orleans to study the mystical arts under Strange, Brother Voodoo, The Elder, The Scarlet Witch, Magik, Hellstrom, and ALL of your favorite Marvel wizards. But with all the new magical threats, is it too late?!”
“What we’re really trying to do is tell those classic coming-of-age stories that we’ve seen in so many other properties or other projects around the world, whether it’s on TV, in movies, in novels or comics,” Young said when Strange Academy was first announced. “Whether it’s kids running through mazes or kids in magic school or people running around trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic landscape.”
Strange Academy: Finals features cover art by Ramos. The first issue comes out in October from Marvel Comics.
