Netflix has released a short teaser trailer for The Magic Order by Mark Millar, the streaming company’s first foray into comic books.
The teaser for The Magic Order is brief but does an excellent job establishing a dark and sullen mood for the upcoming comic series. This is the first project to be born out of Netflix’s acquisition of Millarworld. From the looks of it, the new series looks to be on par with some of Millar’s most memorable recent works like Huck and Empress:
The end of the teaser also announces the coming of a full-length trailer for The Magic Order. Though we don’t know much about Millar’s book and Netflix’s plans for the property moving forward, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out as it hits shelves next month.
Here’s the synopsis for The Magic Order by Mark Millar:
We live in a world where we’ve never seen a monster and these people are the reason we sleep safely in our beds. Magic meets the mob in The Magic Order, as five families of magicians sworn to protect our world for generations must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness…unless the darkness gets them first.
The Magic Order will be available for sale in print format through comic stores and other retail outlets and will also be available for digital purchase on June 13, 2018.
10 Essential Superman Comics You Need To Read
Superman, the quintessential superhero, seems to get a lot of guff from fans. The world’s most powerful Boy Scout can be a boring character when he’s not handled properly, but when he’s being guided by someone who truly understands him and his emotional complexities, fans should expect an amazing story.
Yeah, Superman can punch his way out of simple problems, but when the audience gets to see him think or deal with personal vulnerabilities we develop a special bond with the character. To follow someone who has to be careful about sneezing in public in case they knock someone over or can’t help his friends move furniture in case it betrays his strength can be extremely interesting.
Superman represents hope and believing in yourself. While it might seem like Superman can do anything, his stories really teach audiences that if they believe in themselves their ability to do good is unlimited. Even the world’s most powerful person has emotional problems, and to see him try to overcome his pain serves as a nice reminder that all of us are strong, no matter how low we may feel in a particular moment.
