I was wondering what if Alibaba & Sinbad actully switched places? Like Alibaba was king & Sinbad just beginning his adventure how different do you think magi would be?

That’s an interesting question :)

Mmm… in a way, I think that his role would be kind of similar to Rashid’s, though he’d of course see himself in Sinbad more than Rashid could. I am sure, however, that Alibaba would be a bit more outspoken regarding Sinbad’s ambitions.

My main doubts are around Aladdin’s role, though. For some reason, I can absolutely imagine Sinbad pushing Aladdin away little by little, until he becomes similar to Yunan.

“The image is this week’s frontispiece. 

Magi was on a break last week. In this week’s issue is the last of the battle at the sacred palace. A lot characters I haven’t drawn in years are going to appear, and working on them was tough, but the scene turned out quite lively. Look forward to it and brace yourself for the development that follows.”

I dont have any feelings about Sinbad and Alibaba, thats frightening, because when I try to actually care about one of them I realize that I cant. To me they seem boring . And Im saying that bc I wonder if someone has the same struggles as I.

Personally, I think it’s completely normal to not emphatize with every single character in the story. In the case of Sinbad and Alibaba, I wonder if it has to do with the fact they have both sort of “transcended” humanity (by the standards of the Magi universe, of course; I know we are talking about a world where magic is pretty well-known)? That could make them and their struggles less relatable for many people, even if some situations are “similar” to what they have experienced.

I hope you enjoy this week’s Magi. It took me some time drawing Alibaba in the last few pages. 

There was a development that took place in another dimension where the situation turned chaotic, but starting from the previous issue, we set foot again in the human world. Please, read while trying to detect the subtle changes in every character!”
