The Illuminati Ball

The Mysterious & Provocative Illuminati Ball Comes to Comics!

Titan Comics are pleased to announce The Illuminati Ball – myth meets mystery in an unforgettable graphic novel about power, cruelty, deceit, betrayal, and an insatiable hunger for freedom.

This October, author and visual artist Cynthia von Buhler – a collaborator on projects with Steven Spielberg, Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker, and the creative talent behind Titan’s Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini – brings her hit immersive theater production The Illuminati Ball to the page in an all-new hardback graphic novel!

Described as Eyes Wide Shut crossed with The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Illuminati Ball candidates crave power, love, money, respect, fame – that which eludes them. Their enigmatic host, known only as Pig King, craves something more basic: salvation for his kind. But an Illuminati Ball requires a sacrifice…

Inspired by leaked photos from the Baron and Baroness de Rothschild’s legendary 1972 fete, which drew elaborately masked guests such as Salvador Dali and Audrey Hepburn to the powerful couple’s mansion in France, von Buhler’s graphic novel merges elements of the iconic party with science to create a world filled with myth, mystery and animal-human hybrids.

The Illuminati Ball graphic novel (HC, FC, 88pp, $29.99) by Cynthia von Buhler is set to debut at this year’s New York Comic Con and then hit comic shops and bookstores on October 16, 2019.
