With a foreword by David Copperfield and art by today’s top comic artists, this unparalleled 110-page full color original graphic novel brings readers on a journey of magic, martial arts, and international intrigue.
From one of the world’s most recognized magicians comes this thrilling origin story of The Millionaires’ Magician. Steve Cohen is the star of the long-running hit New York show, Chamber Magic. Together with a dream team of top talents in today’s comic book industry, Cohen steps off the stage and into the world of graphic novels, sharing his path to redemption through magic.
The story by Keith Champagne, whose recent work includes Stranger Things and Justice League, coupled with artwork by Peter Krause (Daredevil, Superman and Shazam) creates an exhilarating world of sleight of hand and deception that weaves together magic, danger, mystery, and martial arts. The power team of artists also includes two-time Eisner award-winning colorist, Jordie Bellaire, well known for her work on Batman, Deadpool, Doctor Strange and Hulk, and expert cover artist, Tara Phillips.
In the Foreword, legendary illusionist David Copperfield writes, “The behind-the-scenes story is as engaging as the magic he performs. Like any good fable, it weaves fact with fiction, truth with a tall tale, into a memorable read.”
Michael Uslan, executive producer of the Batman film franchise, calls this “the best ever graphic novel dealing with the subject of magic.”
Legendary graphic designer Chip Kidd says, “Not an illusion – this graphic novel is engaging and breathtakingly real.”
In The Millionaires’ Magician, Steve Cohen finds his very life swept up in a dark scandal when he discovers a powerful businessman’s dooming secret and must “disappear” to avoid a deadly fate. After years hiding in Japan and training in martial arts, he returns to New York to save the businessman’s innocent victims and enact his revenge. Using the skills of a magician, Steve devises a methodical plan to take down the criminal mastermind… from the inside.
