When Ella attends a sťance for a report in her local paper, she gets sucked into the world of Mysterius (the Unfathomable), a magician who's more than just a performer of flashy tricks. Sensing Ella is the perfect person to play the role of his assistant, Delfi (the latest in a long line), Mysterius hires her. Their cases drag them deep into the modern world of magic, at least one pocket dimension, and the wicker effigy about to be set alight at a Burning-Man-esque festival. Acclaimed creators Jeff Parker (X-Men: The First Class, Agents of Atlas) and Tom Fowler (GREEN ARROW, CAPER) make their WildStorm debut with this exciting, offbeat new miniseries!

From Booklist:
*Starred Review* Alternative-weekly reporter Ella Tamblyn has become the new Delfi, personal assistant to the Great Mysterius, a conjurer who’s the real deal. He’s many, many decades old. His astral body, or whatever, actually goes to hell, whose denizens sometimes return the favor, thanks to pesky Satanists. Ella was covering a high-society sťance led by Mysterius. The host became semicatatonic when a skeptic broke the circle of held hands. Since she saw what Mysterius saw in hell, he knows she’s his new girl Friday and, with a little sorcerous legerdemain, secures the arrangement. Right away they have two cases to resolve: the sťance host’s and that of a witch-cursed, whoremongering billionaire. By the end of the book, they, at least, are sitting pretty, and the trip has been one, indeed. Full of incident, wisecracks, tongue-in-cheek sentimental climaxes, and scary-silly ectoplasmic critters, Parker’s script may be better than those of the last yea-many fantasy FX flickers put together. Fowler draws as if he were channeling Al Capp and Jack Davis, making the women zaftig; giving any man who doesn’t have to be fit, including Mysterius, a big red nose and the gut to go with it; and souping up the action with a loopy hyperkineticism worthy of Sam Kieth (The Maxx) and Peter Bagge (The Bradleys). --Ray Olson
