Some people are lucky enough to debut a comic at MCM London Comic Con this coming weekend. Well, Alice Nuttall and Emily Brady of Footloose Comics have two. I know, get them…
So that’s the print debut of Black Market Magic, a tale of magical and mystical bigotry, that I’ve really been enjoying.
Life should be easy for Kim – she’s got a steady job, an amazing girlfriend, and can actually afford a halfway-decent flat in south London. But she’s also a non-registered magic user, and the state-sponsored Soldiers of Fortune aren’t happy about it. When local werewolves, Fey and other “undesirables” start disappearing, it’s up to Kim to make a stand. Black Market Magic is a story about a dystopia that hasn’t happened yet, but is on its way, its a story about resisting oppression.
And the second volume of their series Cherry.
Steve Lewis already thought his life was tough- but then he inherited the powers of a dead magical girl and was sent to train in a dojo full of faeries, werewolves, and some of the most unpleasant humans you could ever meet.
