Magic comes crashing down on reality this June in the pages of the ongoing CHARLATAN BALL with series writer, IRON MAN: ENTER THE MANDARIAN’s Joe Casey, and artist, STAR WARS: CLONE WARS’ Andy Suriano, at the helm.
“This series is meant to be a chaotic head trip from start to finish,” said Casey. “To me, creator-owned means total freedom. Andy and I feel like we’ve been let off the leash. It’s been a long time coming for us, and we can’t wait to mainline this book directly into the veins of the Direct Market… and beyond!”
CHARLATAN BALL follows C-level magician Chuck Amok and his pet rabbit, Caesar, as they’re unknowingly entangled in a multi-dimensional war they can’t even begin to comprehend, where magic is the main weapon of choice for all its combatants. The only one who knows the truth is the one who brought him here: the untrustworthy Demon Empty, and he’s not talking. The series follows the misadventures of Chuck and Caesar thrown headlong into a world of super-psychedelia.
CHARLATAN BALL #1 (APR082158), an ongoing 24-page comic book for $2.50, will be available in stores June 11th.
