The ever-popular streaming service is moving beyond its core product by expanding into the world of publishing after purchasing Mark Millar's comic book company

Worldwide streaming service Netflix is extending its reach outside of the digital world with  its own comic book, for which it recently debuted a trailer. Called The Magic Order, the book is a six-part mini-series about five wizard families, and will be published by Image Comics. The head writer, Mark Millar, and illustrator, Olivier Coipel, are no strangers to the comic book world, having been on the teams for Civil War, Wolverine: Old Man Logan and Thor, respectively. 

The Magic Order is Netflix’s first foray into the comic book world after acquiring Millarworld, Mark Millar’s comic company. The streaming service is turning the comic book in to a hot commodity before it is even released by announcing that it will not have a second printing. Additionally, if the series is a hit, Netflix already has the rights to the story to turn it into their next binge-worthy series.

This venture into the physical world by Netflix is a step no other streaming service has taken before and is opening the entertainment industry up to a new story telling experience. The mini-series will be available for purchase on June 13th.
