Mystik U 001

> Leave the world of the mundane behind and step through the magical doors of Mystik U! After a tragic accident, a young Zatanna Zatara, under the guidance of Rose Psychic, enrolls in a mysterious university that teaches its students how to master their unique brands of magic. Will Zatanna fit in with her new classmates (Enchantress, Sargon the Sorcerer, Faust and more!) and unlock her true potential? Find out in this exciting bimonthly miniseries from novelist Alisa Kwitney (DESTINY) and Mike Norton (Revival, Runaways)!

Someone blurbed:
> What if DC's magical characters all knew each other as teenagers and attended Hogwarts? This is Mystik U, part one of a three part "prestige" series. Only $5.99 instead of $2.99.

Hmm... The already new unrevealed (for the most part) Rebirth canon of DCU Mystics is retconned (magically rewritten) again in the Prologue here. Which may or may not be changed back once Malevolence is stopped? Seems like big changes to all the handbook characters just to throw them in the melting pot of this plotline concept. Did you read/like it? After reading over ½ dozen reviews, probably this one (already typed) closely reflects my reactions to it:

Next issue:


    MYSTIK U #2
    Written by ALISA KWITNEY
    Art by MIKE NORTON
    With classes in full swing, Zatanna starts to realize that celebrity will only get you so far at MYSTIK U! Could the mysterious ladies of Thriae hold the key to success inside and out of the classroom? Now Zatanna must choose between rushing the sorority with all the answers and her rebellious relationship with Faust. Will she find a way to balance the two or is this bad romance over before it even began? The bimonthly miniseries continues!
    On sale JANUARY 31 • 48 pg, FC, 2 of 3, $5.99 US • RATED T+

The reason for posting in lieu of an orginal review -and on top of asking your retcon opinion- is my surprise that it appears that the character PLOP is now added to the mainstream DCU! That means my one issue of PLOP! from the 70's (can't recall # OTTOMH) might go up in value! Yay.

BTW, can someone remind me how Zatara died in the various main DCU reality (over the years)?
