The comic that communes with the dead!
Richard Wiseman's best-selling Hocus Pocus is back and this time we delve into the strange world of spirit communication! Join Houdini’s chief investigator, Rose Mackenberg, as she uncovers the secrets of the seance room. Travel through time to discover the trickery used by Fox sisters and the Davenport brothers to fool the world. Uncover the scientists and scoundrels behind the strange history of the Ouija Board. Beautifully illustrated, printed in full colour on heavy card stock, and limited edition.
Illustrated by Jordan Collver, written by Rik Worth and coloured by Owen Watts.
The issue also contains a surprise treat for me personally. Artist Jordan Collver has drawn me in as a cameo getting punched by Houdini during his Washington, D.C. melee. I love it!

Congrats on the cameo, John. If I was to be slugged by anyone, I would want it to be by Houdini! Just wondering, what role do you play in the comic?ReplyDelete
Oh, I don't play any role. It's just this cameo. I'm assuming I'm a crooked medium. :)Delete
What a great - surprising - and well-deserved compliment!ReplyDelete
And I especially like how your speech-balloon comment winks at us, your friends and fans!ReplyDelete
Yes, I love that too! Jordan had given me an early look at the art, but it was before the lettering, so this was a surprise to me.Delete
John, Congratulations to you on the cameo! Magic comic collector Mark Horowitz has a cameo in one of the issues, too. I wonder about other? So disappointed that the site says that they are only shipping within the UK. :(ReplyDelete
Looks like you can get it here (issue 2, also), and they do say they ship internationally. (I have no connection with this site; I just found it by searching.) https://www.propdog.co.uk/hocus-pocus-richard-wiseman-issue-1Delete
Hello, I'm the artist! Thanks Christine - yes, PropDog ships internationally, and you can also download PDFs of each issue here: https://gumroad.com/hocuspocuscomicDelete
We've had fun sneaking in lots of cameos... I made a Twitter thread of everyone so far here: https://twitter.com/jordancollver/status/1327927332804366338
