Professor Richard Wiseman welcomes you into a totally new world unlike anything else the magic community has ever seen with Hocus Pocus.
This page-turning collection of five magic-themed comics interweaves incredible tales with amazing interactive magic tricks and stunning artwork that will keep your eyes glued to the page. And to create this perfect collection, Richard teamed up with a group of award-winning comic artists to bring this vision to life.
The result is a breathtaking, hardback collection of fifteen amazing, magical tales about the curious history and psychology of stage magic and the paranormal published right here at Vanishing Inc. Nominated for the prestigious Eisner award, this is one of the most original and captivating adventures through the history of our art ever published.
Each story explores a topic featuring strange-but-true tales of scientific discovery and exploration of the unknown, hosted by a cavalcade of real life charlatans, sorcerers and skeptics from history. You’ll delve deeply into the world of levitation, prophecy, mind reading, seance, and ghosts …
Discover how Nostradamus became the crown prince of prophecy, the story of the dreaded Borley Rectory, the most haunted house in England, and even how Alexander “The Man Who Knows” … actually knew.
With Hocus Pocus, you don’t just read the story, you become part of it. Along the way, you’ll uncover special mind-bending interactive elements and hidden secrets, including tests of your paranormal abilities, psychic readings and more. And you’ll almost certainly learn stories from magic’s history that you’ve never heard before.
This is the first time these amazing tales have been lovingly placed in one stunning hardbound collection and we’re delighted to let you know it’s available today.
