Houdini joins the ROUGH RIDERS

Today we have news of a new graphic novel featuring Houdini and some other familiar faces. ROUGH RIDERS #1 is written by well-known television producer Adam Glass (whom I happen to know is a Houdini buff) with artwork by Pat Olliffe. Here's a look at the cover art and a plot description from Aftershock Comics.

Led by a young Theodore Roosevelt, a motley crew of soon-to-be American legends must work together to solve a mystery that threatens all of existence. Harry Houdini – street magician and master of misdirection. Annie Oakley – a washed-up entertainer, eager for a chance to prove herself in a real war. Jack Johnson – an undefeated brawler and the son of ex-slaves, determined to get his shot at the heavyweight championship… When a terrifying alien technology destroys the USS Maine, these unlikely allies set sail for bloody Cuba, into the heart of a brewing conflict, to wage a shadow war against the greatest threat mankind has ever known. Before they were famous, they were… ROUGH RIDERS.

ROUGH RIDERS #1 will be released on April 6, 2016 (yes, on Houdini's sorta birthday).
