Illustrated by Gervasio & Carlos Aon

2nd Print Coming Soon/ Coming Soon to Comixology
New MAGIC IF stories coming in 2018

"It's been a while since publisher Headless Shakespeare Press has produced a new book, so this was certainly a good way to return to the medium...[.] Most magic may be smoke and mirrors, but when you strip away the illusions here you're left with a solid core with real substance."
Greg McElhatton, icomics Reviews

"This reminds me of early Mike Allred for all sorts of good reasons. Lots of good art and story."
Jeff Mason, Alternative Comics


"It takes you on a great little journey with two very real people and manages to be sweet and romantic without being saccharine."
Charles "Zan" Christensen, Northwest Press


"It's one of the best one-off stories I've read in a while...[.] There's a lovely subtlety to McKenney's writing...[.] Like McKenney, I'd be surprised if we don't see more of Gervasio in the future."
Randy Lander, The Fourth Rail


"Don't be fooled by the metaphorical cover: there's no devil in The Magic If, no supernatural happenings. Only very human urges and passions. Writer Craig McKenney and artist Gervasio have crafted a moving portrait."
Francois Peneaud, The Gay Comics List

"McKenney's sweet tale belies the kind of serious questions about art, life and magic that both Houdini and David Blaine have inspired."
Suzette Chan, Sequential Tart

Don MacPherson, The Fourth Rail

"Blanche's previous adventures have charmed the heck out of me and I'm looking forward to reading this one."
Tony Isabella

"Geary's art is its usual wonderful work with plenty of intricate line work and attention to detail…It is so rare that work of this nature is realized and it should be applauded no matter how many times the creator manages to hit that high spot."
Sam Gafford, Pop Matters

"Rick Geary is one of the very best around, in the same league with classic craftsmen like Gluyas Williams and Edward Gorey."
Howard Cruse, Stuck Rubber Baby
