CA – Cloaks #1 Launch Party

cloaks

Creator/actor David Henrie and series writer Caleb Monroe (PLANET OF THE APES, STEED & MRS. PEEL, PEANUTS) appear at Collector’s Paradise Wednesday, September 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm to premiere CLOAKS #1 from Boom! Studios!

In the Big Apple, a highly skilled street illusionist named Adam blows the minds of crowds with logic-defying acts, while surreptitiously using his artistry to steal from corrupt Wall Street investment bankers and re-distribute their ill-begotten wealth to those in need. He’s a modern-day Robin Hood, but his travails garner the attention of the local authorities. While evading their pursuit, Adam is confronted by three suits and quickly ascertains that freedom has a cost—in order to maintain his liberty, he must join this clandestine Black Ops organization simply known as CLOAKS.
