‘The Magic Order 2’ #2 Variant Cover Sneaks In 25 Horror Movie References. Can You Get Them All?
by Olly MacNamee
What do they say about magicians and only showing a trick the once? Well, it would seem Mark Millar doesn’t play by the rules. But then, when has he ever?
Much like the recent variant cover for Millar’s Jupiter’s Legacy: Requiem #1 by Ozgur Yildirim, which referenced 101 superheroes on its cover, The Magic Order 2 #2 comes with another reference laden variant. And again, illustrated by Yildirim. This time though you can get to guess which 25 classic and cult horror films appear on the cover. But this time, someone’s already posted the answers over on Twitter. Here’s the cover and after the synopsis, we’ll post the answers too. So, spoiler alert, I suppose…

“The next chapter in MARK MILLAR’s critically acclaimed THE MAGIC ORDER series takes the Moonstone family to England where Kevin Mitchell, the leader of the London chapter, is under attack by dark forces living in the world’s underbelly. The Magic Order made all the monsters disappear five hundred years ago, but now they’ve had enough—and they want to rule the world again.”
The Magic Order 2 #2 is out Wednesday 24th November from Image Comics
