Sponsored.  Delving into the world of magic and mystery, Red 5 Comics introduces the strange world of Leo Bloom this summer in The Box #1.  Leo is a private detective.  His partner is a Box.  A Magic Box from which he can take whatever he can imagine... some of the time.  But when he's framed for the kidnapping of a prominent scholar Leo suspects a plot to take his prized possession from him.  Can he find out before either the police or the Mafia find him?

A classical noir story in the vein of The Maltese Falcon and The Long Goodbye, but with a magical twist, The Box was developed by writer Joshua Starnes (Spook) for several years, looking for just the right mix of the occult and the classic detective story.

A perfect fit for fans of The Black Monday Murders or Black MagicThe Box introduces us to a world of monsters and murder right next door to our everyday lives.  Starnes is joined by exciting newcomer Raymond Estrada (Cult Heroes) to create a world of tiger headed mobsters, immortal bagmen and crotchety homicide lieutenants.

The Box #1 is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ June 2021 Previews catalog and slated for release in August 2021.  Comic fans can preorder copies now from their local comic book store.  The Box #1 will also be available digitally through comiXology, Kindle Unlimted, Global Comix, hoopla and other platforms.  Red 5 Comics will release the four-issue series monthly from August to November, 2021.
