“The best ever graphic novel dealing with the subject of magic.”
– Michael Uslan, originator and executive producer of BATMAN film franchise
“Not an illusion – this graphic novel is engaging and breathtakingly real.”
– Chip Kidd, Penguin Random House Book Cover Designer
“What Steve Cohen does is flatly impossible. Don’t believe me? Well, read this – and don’t believe him yourself.”
– Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s WAIT WAIT DON’T TELL ME
Steve Cohen has made his name as an exclusive act for society’s elite. He has been featured on the Late Show With David Letterman, and for nearly two decades held a residency at the Waldorf Astoria New York. His show Chamber Magic now plays every weekend at the Lotte New York Palace.
Following Cohen’s sensational career comes The Millionaires’ Magician, a not-quite-biographical graphic novel retelling of Cohen’s life and rise to fame.
Steve finds his very life swept up in a dark scandal when he discovers a powerful businessman’s dooming secret and must “disappear” to avoid a deadly fate. He spends years hiding in Japan and training in martial arts before returning to New York to save the businessman’s innocent victims and enact his revenge. Using the skills of a magician, Steve devises a methodical plan to take down the criminal mastermind… from the inside.
Today’s top comic artists have collaborated with magician Steve Cohen to capture his tantalizing origin story, in a 110-page, full color graphic novel published by Brick Hat Press.
