Mystik U #2

What if Zatanna went to Hogwarts? That's the basic premise behind the mini-series where Zatanna's past is altered allowing a younger version of the character to attend a magical university known as Mystik U. The first issue set up the basic concept of Zatanna needing to change her past in order to be prepared for a dark evil in the future. To that end we've seen Zatanna meet a group of new friends and attempt to fit into the magical collegiate community.

While still foreshadowing that one student will eventually go evil, Mystik U #2 features two major stories. In the first we see Zatanna earn the attention of a magical sorority. While her friends warn her about the group, Zatanna learns the hard way about dangers lurking on campus.

The second storyline is the will-they-won't-they back-and-fourth between Zatanna and bad boy Sebastian Faust which leads directly into a cliffhanger as their moment of passion has consequences. For fans.
