BOOM! Studios has announced a new limited series that “combines the thrills of a good magic trick with a Black Ops twist.” Created by David Henrie (actor, Disney Channel Original Series Wizards of Waverly Place) with Caleb Monroe (writer, STEED AND MRS. PEEL, Batman) and Mariano Navarro (artist, Protocol: ORPHANS).
Seems the series revolves around “the Robin Hood of Wall Street, tricking the rich out of their money and inadvertently winding up on the radar of a covert Black Ops organization.”
Here’s the rest of the press release from BOOM! Studios:
“CLOAKS combines two of our favorite story elements: magic and spies,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Both partially involve deceit in order to be successful and that’s just one of the reasons this combo created the beginnings of a great story. David, Caleb, and Mariano introduce us to a likable rogue with a penchant for stealing from the rich to give to the poor—with a decidedly modern spin. Stay sharp to catch the misdirections in CLOAKS, and prepare to have a lot of fun.”
In the Big Apple, a highly skilled street illusionist named Adam blows the minds of crowds with logic-defying acts, while surreptitiously using his artistry to steal from corrupt Wall Street investment bankers and re-distribute their ill-begotten wealth to those in need. He’s a modern-day Robin Hood, but his travails garner the attention of the local authorities. While evading their pursuit, Adam is confronted by three Suits and quickly ascertains that freedom has a cost—in order to maintain his liberty, he must join this clandestine Black Ops organization simply known as CLOAKS.
