Before Houdini From Jeremy Holt & John Lucas



Written by Jeremy Holt

Illustrated by John Lucas | Colors by Adrian Crossa

London, 1888. A shadowy killer stalks the streets of London, his appetite for blood unleashed upon the city’s lower classes. To defeat him, MI6 turns to its most top-secret team: four teenage agents with extraordinary gifts—including a young American immigrant with a talent for escapism. . .

After Houdini (2018) began the story of Josef Houdini, son of the famous Harry Houdini—brilliant illusionist, acclaimed escape artist, and top-secret covert operative. Before Houdini (Insight Comics; July 16, 2019; $16.99), turns back the clock and introduces Ehrich Weiss, a young man whose talent for picking locks is about to land him the adventure of his dreams and pull him into a war that will affect his life—and his son’s—for years to come. This is the story of Ehrich’s strange beginnings, from before he was a world-famous magician. Before he was a master of espionage. 

Before he was Houdini.
