Trumping Harry Potter to the ‘young boy wizard’ trope by a number of years The Journal of Luke Kirby is the story of a young British boy who becomes a powerful wizard. Cider With Rosie meets Harry Potter via John Wyndham and Alan Garner, The Journal of Luke Kirby is a coming-of-age story about power, magic, and family, set in an enchanted rural England. Sent to stay with his Uncle Elias in the countryside in 1962, Luke discovers he has the potential to be the greatest alchemist of all – but at what price? Never reprinted before, this is a lost gem from the second wave of 2000 AD; the idyllic setting undercut by the new world of magical danger Luke discovers hiding under the surface in a coming-of-age tale that deals with burgeoning maturity, fear, loss, grief, and the ending of innocence.
