A Prohibition on Magic – Christian Ward’s Tommy Gun Wizards #1 Gets a Preview

Tommy Gun Wizards, the new series from Christian Ward and Sami Kivelä published by Dark Horse is going to Final Order Cut-Off today. This is Christian Ward’s first comic as writer, and Dark Horse Comics – who will be making the first two issues fully refundable.

Christian is also colouring the comic with Dee Cunniffe, lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou and edited by Daniel Chabon.

The comic will also have a back-up strip drawny by Christian Ward as well, which, as he puts it, ‘spins the story on its head and gives the book more of a cosmic/fantasy angle.’

And here’s how Christian is selling it…

Elevator pitch? 1930’s Prohibition but it’s not booze thats banned, it’s magic!

The blurb? Eliot Ness and his team of Untouchables work overtime taking on dangerous criminals that hide in the seedy underbelly of 1930s Chicago. Except in this world, Al Capone isn’t dealing in alcohol, but in magic. With Lick, a drug that grants magical powers to anyone who ingests it, mobsters become wizards, ordinary men become monsters, and darker secrets than Ness can imagine lie at the heart of it all.

Here’s a preview…
