The Magic Order marks the first comic that Millar will work on with Netflix since his company, Millarworld, was acquired by Netflix in August. Under the terms of the deal, Millar will develop properties for television and film, and publish new comics under the Netflix banner.
"We wanted to make a splash with our first book for Netflix, and this is it", Millar, who is president and creative officer of Millarworld, said in a statement.
With Disney removing its titles from Netflix (including Marvel and Lucasfilm) in 2019 and the recent demise of House of Cards, Millar's storytelling might just be what the network needs. Magic meets the mob in The Magic Order, as five families of magicians sworn to protect our world for generations must battle an enemy who's picking them off one by one.
"So my idea with The Magic Order was to take something that's essentially about a secret order of good wizards who got rid of all the bad things hundreds of years ago, but live quietly among us now with blue-collar jobs and ordinary domestic lives", Millar told Entertainment Weekly. "Something for the kids who grew up 10 or 20 years ago loving all-ages fantasy in cinema, but now wanting something a little tastier".
Described as "more like The Sopranos than Lord of the Rings", comicbook readers can expect a lot of great modern fantasy when they read The Magic Order. It will be made available in print and digital formats.
The Magic Order will manifest as a six-issue comic book series in spring 2018. "I've been after him for nearly ten years so to finally have our names in the same book is an absolute honor". Netflix has spent years filling their streaming service with original TV shows and movies, many of which adapt popular source material. I want to do as many comics as I possibly can but keep it all at this kind of level. It's actually a pretty flawless arrangement.
