by Vincent Salera 13 Jun 2018

Last year’s big industry news happened in August when Netflix acquired Millarworld, today marks another milestone and history in the making with the launch of The Magic Order, the first comic book published by Netflix.

The comic is written by Mark Millar and illustrated by artist Oliver Coipel, and is described as “Harry Potter meets The Sopranos”. The first issues will have four different covers using augmented reality (AR) codes. When you scan them with your phone, the artwork will come to life and also reveal new images.
