‘ Tyrant’ blends fic­tion with, ul­ti­mately, fact

Journal Pioneer - - Entertainment -

PHILADEL­PHIA — He’s a tyrant, born and bred, and Fabrizio Boc­cardi is happy with that.

The en­tre­pre­neur is tout­ing the fic­tional Michael Ti­ranno as a kind of an­ti­hero for the ages, span­ning not just graphic nov­els and books, but ul­ti­mately films and real life, too.

With Las Ve­gas as his base, Boc­cardi said this week that the Tyrant — whose ad­ven­tures were de­tailed in the novel “The Seven Sins: The Tyrant As­cend­ing” by Jon Land — will be ex­pand­ing into comics, games and other me­dia, too, with a blend of fan­tasy, true crime, lux­ury and, of course, se­crets. DC En­ter­tain­ment is de­vel­op­ing the char­ac­ter’s growth in comics, while Boc­cardi, chief ex­ec­u­tive of King Mi­das World, hopes to one day meld fic­tion with fact and de­velop the casino in the story, dubbed “Seven Sins.”
