Netflix’s First Comic Book From Mark Millar Revealed: ‘The Magic Order’

Comic-book creator Mark Millar’s first franchise for Netflix will be “The Magic Order,” set to be published in the spring of 2018.

“The Magic Order” will be a six-issue comic book written by Millar with Marvel’s Olivier Coipel (“Thor,” “The Avengers,” “The Amazing Spider-Man”) on board as artist for the first volume. The comic will be available for sale in print format through comic stores and other retail outlets and will also be available for digital purchase.

Netflix acquired Millarworld, run by Mark and Lucy Millar, in August. In addition to continuing to publish comics from Millarworld, Netflix plans develop films, TV shows and kids’ series based on its portfolio of character and comic book franchises. Millarworld’s titles include “Kick-Ass, “Kingsman,” “Wanted,” “Reborn,” “Empress,” and “Jupiter’s Legacy.”

In “The Magic Order,” five families of magicians sworn to protect our world must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness — unless the darkness gets them first.

“We wanted to make a splash with our first book for Netflix, and this is it,” Millar, who is president and creative officer of Millarworld, said in a statement. “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.”

Scotland-native Mark Millar previously spent eight years at Marvel, where he developed the comic books and story arcs that inspired the first Avengers movie, “Captain America: Civil War,” and “Logan.” His 2002 comic book “The Ultimates” was named best comic book of the decade by Time’s Techland.com. Millar also worked at DC Comics, where he created the graphic novel “Superman: Red Son.”
