I read that Tommy is coming out with a Halloween effect called the Comeback Spider. Does anyone know anything about this effect? I am looking for something different for Halloween.

Ok! By popular demand, here is the scoop!

I PROMISE this is going to be a highly entertaining trick for your
Halloween shows and I will prove it after getting the routine on video
this Saturday evening and putting it on YouTube.

With full agreement and permission from Trevor Lewis to use his handling I
present to you:

The Comeback Spider (A Halloween Homing Card Effect)

Magician shows the backs of five cards each with a spider web. State that
there are no spiders because one thing you hate are SPIDERS.

Turn the cards around and tell the children you have pictures of five
different jack-o-lanterns. As you spread the cards the kids see a big
spider and they will LET YOU KNOW!(A nice FURRY Spider) Magician sees the
spider, acts startled and puts the spider aside.

Spread the cards again showing four jack-o-lanterns. Tell the kids one of
the jack-o-lanterns will disappear when you say "Happy" and THEY say
"Halloween!" Once again, another spider appears! This happens three more
times until the kids are in a frenzy. You finally pick up all the cards
and turn around to put them away and there is a spider hanging on your
back! The kids go wild!

Cards measure 5 1/2" by 4 1/4". Printed on quality stock with a beautiful
protective finish.

The cards have arrived and they are beautiful. I cannot ship these til
next week as I am awaiting for the holders to arrive. You will keep the
cards in a vinyl holder during transport to keep them in good shape.

If you are unsure about this effect, PLEASE and I urge you PLEASE check
out the video next Monday.The reason I KNOW it will be entertaining
is that I have been using Trevor's Homing card for 5 years in my act and I
already know how the kids respond.

With the addition of the spider and the spider ending up on your
back will make it even more entertaining. The kids really do get into a
frenzy trying to tell you about the odd card that keeps coming back. (Look
no see)



I promise if you perform this trick, you will NOT be disappointed!

Have to watch the video still, but I love the idea/presentation.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

A MILLION thanks to everyone that has ordered one so far Smile

They were released last week. Wait til you perform it in your kid shows and listen to the reaction from the kids. (priceless)

Ohhhh! Thanks for asking!!! I am revising the Christmas version. It will not be the same effect but similar. A graphics image company is already in gear helping me with this new effect. More on this as it gets closer.

Finally took the time to watch the video, from the description, I got the impression that when you turned around you had a spider on your back, not a card with a spider on it, ala The Web, only probably much bigger.
