Gutter Magic Trade Paperback Now in Stores!


If you were waiting until this Wednesday to pick up your Gutter Magic trade paperback… don’t. The limited series by Creators Workshop’s Rich Douek, with art by Brett Barkley, color by Jules Rivera, and letters by Creators Workshop member Nic J. Shaw, had its drop date moved up a week early. It’s already out!

Gutter Magic #1, which debuted on January 13, 2016 from Comics Experience and IDW, was among the top 300 comics sold in January 2016. The monthly Top 300 list is assembled by ICv2, the leading source of trade news and analysis for pop culture products and retailers.

Gutter Magic’s Top 300 presence marked the first time that a Comics Experience series has appeared on the list since we launched our partnership with IDW Publishing in July 2014.

The series chronicles the adventures of struggling wizard Cinder Byrnes, set in a New York City where World War II was fought with magic. The title has enjoyed consistently strong reviews since its launch in January.
