Aspen Comics Soulfire tells the story of a futuristic world where magic has all but disappeared from existence. It follows the tale of a boy named Malikai who has been chosen as the one to bring magic back into the world while he and his group of misfits quest to stop the remaining magic from being used for evil. Soulfire was created by the late Michael Turner and first hit the shelves of comic shops in March of 2003 when a preview issue was published in Wizard magazine that introduced our main characters.
