WHY WE LOVE IT: Ever wonder what's behind that "No Trespassing" sign? We do!
Co-creators André Sirangelo and Gabriel Iumazark takes 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/Japanesefusion 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
comparisons to entice 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.
