Front Cover
DC Comics, 2005 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 128 pages
Tim Hunter, the celebrated boy magician created by Neil Gaiman, returns in a new series plotted by Neil Gaiman himself! Taking place ten minutes into the future, in alternate universes where battles on Earth and Faerie overlap, this new take on the Hunter is loaded with dystopian undercurrents and psychological horror, set against a background of contemporary global politics. As a war rages in one universe, trapping John Constantine and Zatanna in a deadly siege, their only hope, Hunter, seems happily ensconced in another universe where not even a hint of magic exists. But can Tim truly escape his destiny as the most powerful magician in existence? And if so, what will the consequences be? Suggested For Mature Readers.
