It's magic and mayhem in Manhattan, as Gutter Magic follows the story of Cinder Byrnes, who should be heir to a magical legacy, but can't cast a spell to save his life. When he finally tracks down a spell that can help him, he must figure out how to cast it before the necromantic crime lord he stole it from tracks him down. An epic, gritty urban fantasy adventure that takes place in an alternate-history New York, where long ago, World War II was fought with magic.
Rich Douek became infatuated with comics at a young age, using his allowance and whatever spare change he could find to buy them off the rack at the candy store near his home in NYC. Years later, after building a successful career in copywriting (and filling up quite a few long boxes), he was able to realize a lifelong dream by publishing Gutter Magic, his first original comic, through IDW and Comics Experience. Since then, he has been pursuing further writing opportunities in the world of comic books, and beyond.
