Gutter Magic by Rich Douek and Brett Barkley was originally published in 2012 at New York Comic Con exclusive from Sixgun Comics. In 2015, it was published by IDW as part of an alliance with Comics Experience, an online comics education resource and creative community, which would focus on publishing creator-owned titles by new writers. In 2017, they Kickstartered a spinoff anthology, Tales From The Gutter. And now the series is returning with Source Point Press and Comics Experience in September.
