"Stark contrasts of black on white artwork, heroes who might be worse than villains, Brown and D.N.S deliver with their latest offering, The Magician. Captivating art and prime writing keep the panels fresh and engaging though the story deals with the dark and rotten world of crime, mystery and violence. If you're new to the visual worlds of Brown and D.N.S., you're in for a treat. An intense, atmospheric, and intriguing one at that."   -Erica Crockett (author of Chemicals and The Ram: Cycle 1 of the Blood Zodiac)

"The Magician skillfully plunges you into the dark heart of a criminal...leaving you scarred and begging for more."   -Michelle Joy Gallagher (author of 'A New Mourning: Poetry for the Dead' and 'S=k log W'

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eugene Roberts is a force of nature...a legendary hit man. He's well known, well respected and well feared. When a blood thirsty mob boss hires him to recover a mysterious gym bag, Eugene delivers. However, disaster follows that bag around like a curse. A misunderstanding puts a target on Eugene and now a guy who takes life for a living finds his own on the line!

Fifth Dimension Comics is excited and proud to present this 60-page, hard-boiled trip through the savage streets of 1970's America! Full of dark humor, unflinching violence and beautiful art!
