Max is your average trans man trying to get through high school as himself. But on top of classes, crushes and coming out, Max' s life is turned upside down when his mum reveals an eons-old family secret: he' s descended from a long line of Magical Girls tasked with defending humanity from a dark, ancient evil! For decades, Devoid and his minions have been sealed away, with each generation' s magical girl protecting the seal and our world. But as the millennia have passed, more and more cracks have appeared in the weakening seal. Now, the seal is open, evil is pouring into our world and only Max can defeat it. A hilarious and heartfelt riff on the magical girl genre made popular by teen manga series, Magical Boy is a one-of-a-kind fantasy series that comic readers of all ages will love.
Praise for Magical Boy Volume 1"In this fantastic reimagining of the popular magical girl genre, Kao sticks to classic genre conventions while considering a important question: What happens when a person granted the cosmic powers of a magical girl is actually a trans boy? . . . Using a classic manga art style in full color, Kao keeps the story fun and exciting while tackling real-life issues Max faces. " - Booklist, Starred Review
