The Magic Order, Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel's debut comic book series through Netflix adds another superstar artist to its roster for one of the third issue's variants.
Tommy Lee Edwards provides a haunting new cover showcasing a spellbinding duel between two magicians in an empty theater. Edwards' cover provides an ephemeral look at the secret war between wizards and the forces of darkness as the five families of magicians sworn to protect the world from evil are being picked off one by one.
Debuting in June, The Magic Order is the first comic book series published under the Netflix banner through Millar's creator-founded Millarworld. The imprint was purchased by Netflix in August of last year, with Millar developing new intellectual property for the streaming service while continuing to publish new and returning comics as part of the acquisition agreement.
Since the new series's launch, The Magic Order has become the bestselling Millarworld title to date outperforming the imprint's previous bestseller, Millar and Frank Quitely's Jupiter's Legacy. The solicitation information for next month's third issue is below:
With each wizard brutally murdered, Madame Albany comes another step closer to seizing the dark power of the Orichalcum as her own. The next kill on her list: Leonard Moonstone. Is her gruesome assassin powerful enough to destroy the leader of The Magic Order?
The Magic Order #3 is written by Mark Millar with art by Olivier Coipel. It is scheduled to go on sale on August 15.
