Rich Douek has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Tales From the Gutter: A Gutter Magic, an exciting new chapter in the Gutter Magic story, that explores and expands upon the world featured in the 2016 IDW miniseries.
In the 2016 series, Gutter Magic explored the story of a man named Cinder Byrnes, in his quest to become a wizard. Born without powers to one of the most prestigious wizarding families in the city, he was determined to gain the powers of magic for himself, and turned half the city upside down to do it.
Tales From the Gutter: A Gutter Magic features three all new short stories that take place in the Gutter Magic universe. Joining Rich on this project are Brett Barkley, who returns from the main series, Eryk Donovan, of Quantum Teens Are Go, and Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon, of Legend of Wonder Woman.

In Free Spirits, Eryk Donovan will illustrate the world through the eyes of the various elementals and spirits that the wizards employ. Turns out that most of them don’t appreciate being bound.

“Gutter Magic is smart fantasy that’s well worth your time and treasure.”

“Gutter Magic is a fantasy-fueled caper that mixes gun-slinging and spell-slinging. Fun stuff!”
– Jim Zub
(WAYWARD, UNCANNY AVENGERS)
“ Weird and surprising, which is what this and are two of my favorite things in comics. And fun, which is the part that really matters. There’s not a lot of urban fantasy steampunk in comics, and Gutter Magic makes a good argument that we’ve been missing out.”
– Justin Jordan (SPREAD, LUTHER STRODE)
“GUTTER MAGIC is a smart, engaging, and original debut that cements Douek & Barkley as creators to watch. With great characters, wonderfully composed action scenes, and an effortless sense of world building, GUTTER MAGIC pulled me in from the first page and has me anxiously waiting for issue two!”
