Eisner Award-Winning Artist Christian Ward Writes His First Comic in “Tommy Gun Wizards”
MILWAUKIE, Ore. (April 24, 2019)—Dark Horse Comics is excited to announce a new genre-bending comic series from acclaimed artist, now writer, Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom, ODY-C), and illustrator Sami Kivelä (Abbott, Beautiful Canvas) with colors by Christian Ward in collaboration with Dee Cunniffe (ODY-C, Redneck), about an alternate 1930s Chicago, where the contraband of choice isn’t booze—it’s magic! Tommy Gun Wizards marks Christian Ward’s first foray into writing, and features backup stories drawn and written by Ward with and an issue #1 variant cover by Declan Shalvey!
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 in Tommy Gun Wizards.
Tommy Gun Wizards #1 (of four) goes on sale August 28, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
