After barely surviving a horrific train crash, and a shard of metal lodged in his brain, Ned Ellis wakes up with no memory. Who is he? Where did he come from? And whose side is he supposed to be on? The Sioux who find him and nurse him back to health, name him Magic Wind, the white shaman.
"History and legend, lead and horror. In Magic Wind we have a story poised between the ruthless iron law of the gun and the infinite and mysterious weapons of the spirit." - Corriere di Rimini
"Magic Wind is the perfect synthesis of Bonelli western. The episodes of the series combine the classic atmosphere of western adventure with its strong smells and flavors of the American frontier, and the dark atmosphere of horror with its tales of fantasy and surrealism. “ - La Rinascita
Epicenter Comics proudly brings you for the first time in English language, Italy’s best-selling, thrilling and unique graphic novel series, Magic Wind, from one of the world’s premiere comic book publishers, Sergio Bonelli Editore. Magic Wind masterfully combines the feel of the classic Western adventure with the spine-chilling atmosphere of gothic tales of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Alan Poe; where the old West confronts the one that is becoming obscure and macabre, and American Indian mysticism clashes with the ruthless, string pulling secret organizations hiding within Washington’s political system.
Creator Gianfranco Manfredi’s electrifying scripts are perfectly complimented by the artwork of Europe’s foremost talent: Frisenda, Parlov, Milazzo, Ortiz, Ramella, Perovic and others. They pull us into the world of prairies and American Indian way of life or the streets of late 19th century cities or the dark places and creatures that inhibit our worst nightmares. Fans of western, horror and magic get ready!
