Tommy Gun Wizards

One of the most impressive people I know is my good friend John Pyka aka Big Daddy Cool. Not only is he a great stage magician and a fantastic singer he’s certainly an expert on comics. Earlier this month he posted on his Facebook page about a new dieselpunk comic book from Dark Horse comics: Tommy Gun Wizards.

The official Dark Horse web site describes Tommy Gun Wizards as “Mobsters, magic, and mayhem in the Prohibition era!” It goes on to say:

“Eliot Ness and his team of Untouchables work overtime taking on dangerous criminals that hide in the seedy underbelly of 1930s Chicago. Except in this world, Al Capone isn't dealing in alcohol, but in magic. With Lick, a drug that grants magical powers to anyone who ingests it, mobsters become wizards, ordinary men become monsters, and darker secrets than Ness can imagine lie at the heart of it all.”

Tommy Gun Wizard was created by Christian Ward and Sami Kivela. Sami Kivela is credited with the art while Christian Ward was responsible for the cover art.

The artwork is excellent and the storyline and characters are interesting. It’s a lot of fun and I highly recommend Tommy Gun Wizards.

Issue #1 of Tommy Gun Wizards was released August 28, 2019.
