EVERYDAY MAGUS is Now Live on Kickstarter

Welcome to The Ominous-verse—where the magical meets the mundane…

The Great Resignation meets The Afterlife. Announcing Everyday Magus, a finalist in Negative Space Comics writing competition and its anything but banal supernatural storytelling, is now live on Kickstarter!

Written by Ominous Powers Ink co-founders Sean Murphy and Kelly La Croix, with art by comics newcomer Paik Abanilla, colors by Dan Jackson (Stranger Things, The Incredibles, Star Wars), with letters and design by award-winning art director and designer Keith Wood; Everyday Magus is perfect for fans of I Hate Fairyland, Happy!, and 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank.

On the day Chalk dies, he is captured by the supernatural corporation Ominous Powers Incorporated (OPI) and sent to “Newly Departed Processing”. There, the enslaved alien Octoped, Cyanea, is forced to tattoo him with the magical sigil of slavery, binding Chalk into OPI's service. Chalk and Cyanea bond over their shared trauma of child loss, and she inscribes a magic instruction on Chalk's soul, which are also his daughter's final words: “Save Me”.

“Boring sh*t matters. Your small town you think no one would ever relate to? SUPER WEIRD and SUPER INTERESTING,” said Sean Murphy. “Like every small town kid has a cast of crazy weirdo characters that could totally find themselves in some madcap universe. You just gotta create it. That’s Everyday Magus.”

“Though Sean and I have differing interests, likes, and styles, I've always felt our individual strengths fill in for each other's weaknesses,” said Kelly LaCroix. “Together, I hope Everyday Magus introduces readers to the groundwork for the larger story universe we've created—we have several more projects we're working on that feature the same characters and settings. I also hope readers enjoy a fun and bizarre ride!”

Help set the stage for a persistent narrative universe with huge potential. The Kickstarter for Everyday Magus won’t last forever, ends Friday, March 31.
