 THE WORLD'S FIRST COMIC SERIES PRINTED ON A DECK OF PLAYING CARDS - UNIQUE, INNOVATIVE, AND A NEW COMIC EXPERIENCE!

Magicians Must Die is the world's first comic series printed on a deck of playing cards.  The brain child of underground playing card legend De'vo, this comic series is unlike any other comic in the world, both in story and how you read it.  This Limited Edition mini-series consists of 5 issues(decks.)  The beautiful artwork is created by comic artist Jay Peteranetz.  We have self funded the first 4 issues, but need your help to fund the final issue and complete our mini series.

WHAT IS THIS EXACTLY? - This is a comic book, but instead of being printed in a book format, we printed on the backs of playing cards.  You layout the cards and form a poster sized comic.  Each deck is an issue that continues from where the previous left off.  You could even lay out all 5 decks and get one massive work of art that tells our story from start to finish!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ORIGINAL IDEAS AND ART!  - Thank you so much for checking out our Kickstarter and supporting original ideas! We love you!

Risks and challenges

The first 4 issues are already completed. Issue #5 is being drawn and inked now.

We have already coordinated with the United States Playing Card Company to have a smaller print run should we need to print less than the usual 2,500 amount. We have also padded our July shipping date in hope that we will ship earlier.

We have already created and printed 25 decks of playing cards over the past several years and have shipped over 100,000 decks around the world. Our customer service and shipping personnel are second to none and will ensure everyone receives their rewards.
