Sorry, couch potatoes—Netflix’s latest offering can’t be streamed on TV.
The digital entertainment company dropped a trailer on Wednesday for the debut issue of “The Magic Order,” its first ever comic book. Created by longtime Marvel artist Olivier Coipel and bestselling author Mark Millar, the six-issue series hits shelves next month.
The trailer for “The Magic Order” (above) features animations of Coipel’s art and teases the storyline of the comic, following a group of modern-day magicians tasked with saving the world from existential and sometimes supernatural threats.
Netflix has in recent years expanded its repertoire to include all types of movie and TV offerings, including original films, TV dramas, documentaries, talk shows, and comedy specials. Last August, the digital juggernaut signaled its first foray into the world of comic books after acquiring Millarworld, the publisher behind many of Millar's most popular comic titles, including “Kick-Ass,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” and “Wanted.”
Issue No. 1 of “The Magic Order” is available June 13. Watch the trailer (above).
