Darkness on the Edge of Town

John Barrowman, who many of you will know from Doctor Who, Torchwood, and of course Arrow, is now to set to help bring a comic book story to life for a mini-series event.

The 49th Key is actually a backup story in the Heavy Metal Comic by Erika Lewis, the story:

“49th Key is based on the 16th century legend of Enochian magic, which tells of a secret language of angels.

The first chapter in an expansive fantasy series tells of a rogue archeologist and a young autistic and mute boy on a treacherous journey through England to bring the boy home. The boy turns out to be the key to a gateway between our world and that of Enochia, a magical society that exists below the Earth’s surface, filled with fantasy creatures and highly advanced humans.”

Barrowman is also set to star in the mini-series.
