Description

The exciting second volume of the After Houdini saga explores the origins of the elusive master of magic, the man who would become...Houdini. London, 1888. A shadowy killer stalks the streets of London, his appetite for blood unleashed upon the city's lower classes. To defeat him, MI6 turns to its most top-secret team: four teenage agents with extraordinary gifts--including a young American immigrant with a talent for illusion . . . After Houdini began the story of Josef Houdini, son of the famous Harry Houdini--brillian illusionist, acclaimed escape artist, and top-secret covert operative. Now we turn back the clock and meet Ehrich Weiss, a young man whose skill at picking locks is about to land him the adventure of his dreams, and pull him into a war that will affect his life--and his son's--for years to come. This is the story of Ehrich's strange beginnings, from before he was a world-famous magician. Before he was a master of espionage. Before he was...Houdini.

Review quote

"Before Houdini is a well thought-out read with smart pacing and a clear narrative arc. It's a fun Victorian murder mystery, complete with supernatural warfare. Ehrich is a compelling character, and his diverse team of co-agents Raj, Elenora, and Atsuko are well-designed. The writing flows very well from panel to panel, and it's the kind of dialogue where you can *hear* the voices..."--Rogues Portal
