Great Wiz And The Ruckus GN – Boom! Studios tries to keep the Ruckus down. Red is a blind Wiz tasked with finding other Wiz’s of the realm that, when banded together, will become a being of light known as the Great Wiz. They are needed to destroy the growing evil darkness known as the Ruckus. On his journey Red meets with Bog Wiz, Sad Dad, and Feather Duster, but it’s going to take a young Wiz named Bean to bring them together. But Bean is too strong, too hot-headed, and too untested to be of any real help. With the fate of the world resting on the small Wiz’s shoulders, Red will do whatever it takes to get Bean ready and to make sure the Ruckus doesn’t win. Great Wiz and the Ruckus is an epic adventure of the battle between good and evil, with lovable heroes and great friends that tween will love.
