ARCHIE COMICS HITS NYCC 2018 AHEAD OF RIVERDALE SEASON 3 PREMIERE, NETFLIX'S CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA LAUNCH, AND HISTORIC ARCHIE #70009/24/18 @ 10:49 am EST
BOOM! Studios today announced it has acquired the comic book and graphic novel publishing license to THE MAGICIANS
, the award-winning, New York Times
bestselling adult fantasy novel series created by Lev Grossman, which has become a worldwide pop culture phenomenon and inspired a hit television series on Syfy, whose fourth season will premiere in 2019.
Originally published in 2009, THE MAGICIANS
introduces readers to Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, which boasts a prestigious and dangerously difficult curriculum, famous and infamous alumni, and a record of only…a few deaths per graduating class.
The first release in this partnership will be THE MAGICIANS: ALICE’S STORY
, an all-new original graphic novel hardcover set in the world of the book trilogy by Grossman, from acclaimed writer Lilah Sturges (Lumberjanes: The Infernal Compass, Jack of Fables
), rising star artist Pius Bak and featuring a cover by Steve Morris (Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Debuting in July 2019, THE MAGICIANS: ALICE’S STORY
expands the mythology ofThe Magicians
, the first novel in the series trilogy, through the perspective of lead character Alice Quinn before she joins Brakebills and embarks on an epic journey in the magical land of Fillory.
Alice is manifestly brilliant, and she’s always known that magic is real. During her years at Brakebills Alice rises to the top of her class, falls in love with Quentin Coldwater, and witnesses a horrifically powerful magical creature called the Beast invade their dimension. Soon after graduation, Alice and Quentin set their sights on the idyllic setting from their favorite children’s books, Fillory. In Fillory, magic flows like a river but even with talking animals, enchanted items, and the chance to become king and queen of a magical land in the offing, nothing is what it seems and something far darker lies in wait behind the spellbinding facade. Now fans will learn untold secrets of Alice’s journey, the world of THE MAGICIANS
, and will find answers to some of their biggest questions.
"Usually when your work is being adapted, you just hope you'll end up with something reasonably faithful to your vision,” said novelist Lev Grossman. “You never expect to have that vision turned around and expanded to reveal incredible new things you never even knew were there. But that's what happened with ALICE’S STORY
“Working on THE MAGICIANS
has been a complete joy for me from beginning to end,” said writer Lilah Sturges. “The original novel is so good. It's just so good. Like, have you read this thing? And it really speaks to me, being as it is the emotional biography of basically every sensitive gifted-and-talented kid. The best part for me was getting to adapt it in a way that presents the events of the novel in an entirely new context, by focusing on Alice rather than Quentin. It's a change that, perhaps not coincidentally, makes it one of the most effortless jobs I've ever had; in real life I'm only a hair's breadth away from Alice personality-wise, for better or worse.”
“What I enjoy most about drawing is that it allows me to create things that are not real by building worlds and exploring them in my art. So I feel very lucky to get to be working onTHE MAGICIANS
, because drawing Fillory and the magical world surrounding it is so much fun!” said artist Pius Bak. “The original novel is incredible and Lilah’s adaptation of it . . . is just perfect. This feels like the best work of my career and I can’t wait for fans to see the final graphic novel in 2019.”THE MAGICIANS: ALICE’S STORY
is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Joss Whedon’s Firefly
and Buffy The Vampire Slayer
, Mech Cadet Yu
, Grass Kings
, and Bone Parish
challenges readers with its unflinching look at the nature of the world around us, the way we mature (or not) through our toughest moments, the beauty of those trials, and introduces us to a cast of nuanced, flawed characters – with perhaps none as fascinating as Alice Quinn,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Lev, Lilah, and Pius have created a new canonical vision of that the first novel in the series, digging deeper into Alice’s journey and exploring the depths – and heights – of her growth from fledgling magician to something even greater. First and longtime fans alike will discover something new in the heart of ALICE’S STORY
Print copies of THE MAGICIANS: ALICE’S STORY
will be available for sale in July 2019 at local comic book shops, bookstores or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

Image Comics is pleased to reveal a chilling preview excerpt from the forthcoming JOOK JOINT by Tee Franklin (BINGO LOVE) and Alitha E. Martinez (Black Panther: World of Wakanda)—a dark horror series, filled with blood and revenge, hitting stores this October. ADRIAN MARTINEZ JOINS THE CAST OF 'LADY AND THE TRAMP'09/24/18 @ 10:29 am EST
JOOK JOINT drops readers in the Deep South and introduces Mahalia, who runs the hottest spot in all of 1950s New Orleans—The Jook Joint. Here she keeps the jazz popping, people bopping… and the women? The women are to die for. There’s only one rule: “Keep your hands to yourself.” But some men think rules don’t apply to them, and Mahalia and her coven of slain women enjoy reminding them that they most certainly do…
Best described as American Horror Story meet Law & Order: SVU, JOOK JOINT is a comic unlike any other. When asked in an interview with The Hollywood Reporterabout her departure from BINGO LOVE’s romance and shifting to horror, Franklin described her long-time love of the genre.
“Stephen King’s It—the hardcover edition—was the first book I can remember checking out of the library; I was 10 years old. I could not put this book down. I would take It out of my backpack, on the 6 train or the No. 36 and 15 buses to Harlem, and read until it was my stop. I finished It in two days. Then it was on to Pet Sematary, Salem’s Lot, Misery, and after I finished a majority of his collection, I moved on to other horror writers,” said Franklin. “I wanted more, and I found Japanese horror—Takashi Miike is my favorite director. Four years ago was when I had found out about the existence of horror comics, and there was no going back. I love a good scare, creep-out, and, of course, anything bloody and full of gore. Don’t judge me when I say this, as I realize I sound rather serial killer-ish, but horror makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Horror is truly my happy place.”
The #1 issue will also feature a special Cover B showcasing Mike Hawthorne's artwork, the proceeds for which will be donated to Joyful Heart Foundation, a non-profit founded by celebrity Mariska Hargitay, which stands to transform society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, support survivors’ healing.
JOOK JOINT #1 hits comic shops on Wednesday, October 3rd and Franklin is set to make appearances at New York Comic Con and Midtown Comics the week of launch. Visit Midtown Comics, Downtown location (64 Fulton St, New York, NY 10038) on Thursday, October 4th from 8-10 PM where she will be signing alongside Gerry Duggan, John McCrea, David O'Sullivan, Mirka Andolfo, and Joe Casey.
