Kick-Ass, Wanted, and Kingsman creator Mark Millar has announced his first comic book project for Netflix will be THE MAGIC ORDER. The series will follow five families of magicians as they attempt to keep the world safe from unknown threats while trying to lead a normal life. Olivier Coipel (House of M, Legion of Superheroes) will be illustrating the series.
Millar stated, “We wanted to make a splash with our first book for Netflix and this is it. I love dark fantasy and there’s an enormous gap in the market for something like this. Netflix hiring Olivier has also made me the happiest guy alive. I’ve been after him for almost ten years so to finally have our names in the same book is an absolute honor.”
This will serve as the first comic book project to be produced by Netflix, running six issues beginning in Spring 2018. Netflix will be releasing the series in both print and digital formats. Now that Millar is on staff at Netflix following the company’s purchase of Millarworld imprint in August he plans on creating around 20 comic book issues annually for the company.
