THE LAST BROADCAST - Bringing Urban Magic to Life with BOOM! Studios


In May 2014, BOOM! Studios launches a new series called The Last Broadcast. The story is said to mix urban exploration with vaudevillian magic, featuring a gorgeous pencil style by Gabriel Iumazark.

Rather than just a standard preview, Newsarama is teaming with BOOM! to give you a look at the full process, featuring six pages from script to pencil to colors to letters, showing you how Sirangelo and Iumazark make the story come to life.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Ever wonder what’s behind that “No Trespassing” sign? Co-creators André Sirangelo and Gabriel Iumazark take us deep into the renegade world of urbEx (urban exploration). Throw in a decades-old conspiracy involving vaudeville magicians and occult spiritualists and you’ve got us hooked.  
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: The cunning, daredevil urbEx members of Backbone will win you over as the ragtag, Ocean’s Eleven-style crew of the sewers and abandoned warehouses. Iumazark’s Brazilian/Japanese-fusion indie art style brings edgy energy to every dark corner. And fans of THIEF OF THIEVES and the film NOW YOU SEE ME will find a lot that entices them.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: An urban spelunking group in San Francisco discovers a secret bunker belonging to the long-vanished 1930s stage magician Blackhall the Incredible at the same time as young, out-of-work magician Ivan receives a mysterious package that points him toward a possible conspiracy involving Blackhall’s death in 1934. Both groups dive into the mystery, not yet realizing that it’s about the change their lives forever.
