Your First Look at Lev Grossman’s The Magicians: Alice’s Story

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at The Magicians: Alice’s Story, an all-new original graphic novel hardcover set in the world of the acclaimed book trilogy by Lev Grossman, from writer Lilah Sturges(, rising star artist Pius Bak and featuring a cover by Steve Morris.

The Magicians is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling adult fantasy novel series created by Lev Grossman, which has become a worldwide pop culture phenomenon and inspired a hit television series on Syfy, whose fourth season will premiere later this year. Originally published in 2009, The Magicians introduced readers to Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, which boasts a prestigious and dangerously difficult curriculum, famous and infamous alumni, and a record of only… a few deaths per graduating class.

Debuting in July 10, 2019, The Magicians: Alice’s Story expands the mythology of The Magicians, the first novel in the series trilogy, through the perspective of the character Alice Quinn before she joins Brakebills and embarks on an epic journey into the magical land of Fillory.

Alice is a brilliant and naturally talented magician who grew up fully aware of the hidden world of magic but whose well-versed parents refused to teach her how to make use of it. So what is an insanely gifted young genius with no guidance or encouragement to do except teach herself? Which is how she winds up a top student at Brakebills College. Alice is at first meek and cripplingly shy until she breaks out of her shell to face deadly magical creatures, devastating heartbreak, and the hard lessons of a magical world where even well-intentioned actions can have brutal and deadly consequences.

Eisner Award-nominated writer Lilah Sturges will be in attendance as a guest of BOOM! Studios at ALA Midwinter 2019 in Seattle, Washington. She will be available for signings both Saturday and Sunday, 1/26-1/28, as well as a guest on the BOOM! Studios: Discover Yours panel on Monday, 1/28, where she will join some of the most acclaimed voices in graphic fiction today for a discussion on the diverse, award-winning imprints of BOOM! Studios, Archaia, BOOM! Box and KaBOOM!.

The Magicians: Alice's Story

Lev Grossman’s The Magicians Comes To BOOM!

BOOM! Studios has announced it has acquired the comic book and graphic novel publishing license to The Magicians, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling adult fantasy novel series created by Lev Grossman, which has become a worldwide pop culture phenomenon and inspired a hit television series on Syfy, whose fourth season will premiere in 2019.

Originally published in 2009, The Magicians introduces readers to Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, which boasts a prestigious and dangerously difficult curriculum, famous and infamous alumni, and a record of only…a few deaths per graduating class.

The first release in this partnership will be The Magicians: Alice’s Story, an all-new original graphic novel hardcover set in the world of the book trilogy by Grossman, from acclaimed writer Lilah Sturges, rising star artist Pius Bak and featuring a cover by Steve Morris.

Debuting in July 2019, The Magicians: Alice’s Story expands the mythology of The Magicians, the first novel in the series trilogy, through the perspective of lead character Alice Quinn before she joins Brakebills and embarks on an  epic journey in the magical land of Fillory.

Alice is manifestly brilliant, and she’s always known that magic is real. During her years at Brakebills Alice rises to the top of her class, falls in love with Quentin Coldwater, and witnesses a horrifically powerful magical creature called the Beast invade their dimension. Soon after graduation, Alice and Quentin set their sights on the idyllic setting from their favorite children’s books, Fillory. In Fillory, magic flows like a river but even with talking animals, enchanted items, and the chance to become king and queen of a magical land in the offing, nothing is what it seems and something far darker lies in wait behind the spellbinding facade. Now fans will learn untold secrets of Alice’s journey, the world of The Magicians, and will find answers to some of their biggest questions.

Rob Bailey is acquiring another magical book with The Occultist Omnibus! In 2010, writer Tim Seeley brought his rare mix of humor, horror, and heroes to Dark Horse’s own Mike Richardson’s magical creation in a popular one-shot, which soon transformed into a popular ten issue, two volume series! Artists Victor Drujiniu, Mike Norton, and Jason Gorder brought Rob Bailey’s adventure to life while colorists Andrew Dalhouse and Allen Passalaqua provide their supernaturally gorgeous coloring skills to the series. The Occultist Omnibus cover is by artist Steve Morris.

A gang of hitman mages are sent by a sorcerer who wants the book for himself, and Rob has to learn the ropes of his new powers fast before they can get to him.

A Musical Celebration of Bestselling Author Chuck Palahniuk’s New Novella

Bestselling author Chuck Palahniuk has written 14 novels, sold more than 5 million books in the United States, written a New York Times bestselling graphic novel and an acclaimed coloring book and had multiple books adapted for film—and now Palahniuk‘s prose will be inspiring musical performances across the country. This fall, the Bushwick Book Club will present three shows in celebration of and inspired by Palahniuk’s latest book Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color. The novella, featuring colorable illustrations by Steve Morris and Mike Norton, is on sale from Dark Horse Books on November 7 and performances for Legacy will be held in Brooklyn, Portland and Los Angeles in November.

Founded in Brooklyn in 2009, the Bushwick Book Club meets every month and employs the talents of local songwriters and artists who plumb the depths of a chosen literary gem to create that rare and beautiful thing – a new song (or visual art, dance, film or snack).  All songs are then performed at a live show. The Bushwick Book Club now has several branches all over the world, including Portland, LA, Seattle, Malmo, Sweden, Santa Barbara, New Orleans and Toronto, Canada. The Bushwick Book Club Podcast was launched this year.

The New York show will feature performances by BBC Founder, Susan Hwang, Jessie Kilguss, Charlie Nieland, Juliet Garrett, Terry Radigan, Casey Holford, Timothy Dark, Joanna Kelly, Storm Garner, Jennifer Devore and Earl Maneein.

The Portland show will be hosted by Amy Faust of Mike and Amy in the Morning on the Wolf 99.5 and will feature NYC performers, Susan Hwang, Jessie Kilguss, Charlie Nieland, Larry Krone and Portland participants, Mike Danner, Alan Kanning, Ian MacKintosh, Jetty Swart, Matt Schulte and Don Rauf.

The LA show will feature BBC Founder, Susan Hwang and Charlie Nieland as Lusterlit from NYC, BBC L.A. founder, Stacy Rock, Nicole Tourtelot, Justin Remer, writer Deenah Vollmer, Dr. Sherri Canon, Molly White and others to be announced.

Legacy: An Off-Color Novella for You to Color is a hardcover book, accompanied by a cover illustrated and colored by Duncan Fegredo and designed by Nate Piekos. Two acclaimed artists provides colorable illustrations throughout the novella: Mike Norton, the creator of the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning webcomic Battlepug, and Steve Morris, who’s best known for his art for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic books.
