Front cover for Goddess Gambit by Verne Andru, 2012

Published in 2012; main webpage is here; ordering lynx are here

Circa the Year of Dome 2000, Anvil the Artificer, a then otherwise unnamed, highborn Lazaremist later called Tvasitar Smithmonger, dedicated the first three devic talismans, or power foci, that he forged out of molten Brainrock to the Trigregos Sisters.

The long lost, possibly even dead, simultaneous mothers of devakind hated their offspring for abandoning them on the far-off planetary Utopia of New Weir. Not surprisingly, their fearsome talismans could be used to kill Master Devas (devils).

For most of twenty-five hundred years, they belonged to the recurring deviant, Chrysaor Attis, time after time proven a devaslayer. On Thrygragon, Mithramas Day 4376 YD, he turned them over to his Great God of a half-father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, to use against his two brothers, Unmoving Byron and Little Star Lazareme, in hopes of usurping their adherents and claiming them as his own.

Hundreds of years later, these selfsame thrice-cursed Godly Glories helped turn the devil-worshippers of Sedon's Head against their seemingly immortal, if not necessarily undying gods. Now, five hundred years after the 1000 Days of Disbelief, they've been relocated.

The highest born, surviving devic goddesses want them for themselves; want to thereby become incarnations of the Trigregos Sisters on the Hidden Continent. An Outer Earthling, one who has literally fallen out of the sky after the launching of the Cosmic Express, gets to them first ...

In the Year of the Dome 4825, Morgan Abyss, the Melusine Master of the Utopian Weirdom of Cabalarkon, seizes control of Primeval Lilith, the ageless, seemingly unkillable Demon Queen of the Night. The eldritch earthborn is the real half-mother of the invariably mortal Sed-sons but, once she has hold of her, aka Lethal Lily, Master Morgan proceeds to trap the Moloch Sedon Himself.

In the midst of the bitter, century-long expansion of the Lathakran Empire, the Hidden Headworld's three tribes of devil-gods are forced to unite in an effort to release their All-Father. Unfortunately for them, they're initially unaware Master Morg, the Death's Head Hellion herself, has also got hold of the Trigregos Talismans, devic power foci that can actually kill devils, and Sedon's thought-father Cabalarkon, the Undying Utopian she'll happily slay if they dare attack her Weirdom.

Utopians from Weir have never given up seeking to wipe devils off not just the face of the Inner Earth, but off the planet itself. Their techno and biomages, under the direction of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon's extremely long-lived High Illuminary, Quoits Tethys, have determined there is only one sure way to do that -- namely, to infect the devils' Inner Earth worshippers with fatal plagues brought in from the Outer Earth.

Come All-Death Day there are more Dead Things Walking than Living Beings Talking. Believe it or not, that's the good news.

Kadmon Heliopolis had one life. It ended in October 1968. The Male Entity has had many lives. In his fifth, he and his female counterpart, often known as Miracle Memory, engendered more so than created the Moloch Sedon. They believe him to be the Devil Incarnate. They've been attempting to kill him ever since. Too bad it's invariably he, Heliosophos (Helios called Sophos the Wise), who gets killed instead.

On the then still Whole Earth circa the Year 4000 BCE, one of their descendants, Xuthros Hor, the tenth patriarch of Golden Age Humanity, puts into action a thought-foolproof, albeit mass murderous, plan to succeed where the Dual Entities have always failed. He unleashes the Genesea. The Devil takes a bath.

Fifty-nine hundred and eighty years later, New Century Enterprises launches the Cosmic Express from Centauri Island. It never reaches Outer Space; not all of it anyhow. As a stunning consequence of its apparent destruction, ten extraordinary supranormals are reunited, bodies, souls and minds, after a quarter century in what they've come to consider Limbo. They name themselves the Damnation Brigade. And so it appears they are -- if perhaps not so much damned as doomed.

At least one person survives the launching of the Cosmic Express. He literally falls out of the sky -- on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head. An old lady saves him. Except this old lady lives in a golden pagoda, rides vultures and has a third eye. She also doesn't stay old long. He becomes her willing soldier, acquires the three Sacred Objects and goes on a rampage, against his own people, those that live.

Meanwhile, Centauri Island, the launch site of the Cosmic Express, comes under attack from Hell's Horsemen. Only it's not horses they ride. It's Atomic Firedrakes!

Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos chronicles their ongoing striving for a return to paramountcy.

Nothing less than the PHANTACEA version of the origin of the Devil himself highlights this 1990 collection of short featurettes drawn by Ian Fry and initially intended for the phantacea Phase One project.

(Secular Note 1: According to some faiths, fallen angels became devils. They had to have fallen from somewhere, which in Phantacea Mythos books makes them extraterrestrials. Are the heavens not outer space? Of course they are.)

(Pun Alert: As for why Hor looks Japanese on the cover of pH-4Ever, when Jim McPherson first heard about Japan's famous Noh theatre as a kid, he decided it had to be named after Noah. The notion never left whatever else is left of his peabrain.)

Foremost among the tales told is that of Thrygragon. For not just devazurkind in particular, Mithramas 4376 Year of the Dome (Christmas Day 376 AD) may yet prove perhaps the singly most important event in Whole Earth history since Xuthros Hor, the Biblical Noah, caused the Genesea.

Both Ginny the Gynosphinx and Andy the Androsphinx make their Phantacea print debuts. One or the other, while romping with whichever, pauses briefly to reintroduce, howsoever smellily, Demon King Daemonicus, to the pre-Genesea world.

To say the least, he and Demon Queen Lily, who also makes her print debut herein, prove extremely hard to get rid of hereafter.

Feel Theo also contains an afterword by the author. Albeit with the bonus of three or four contextually nifty photographs taken in Mexico City, it is reprinted, in colour, here.

A faun mask reminiscent of Dervish Furie, shot in Antigua Guatemala in 2001 by Jim McPhersonA John Sundown type, painting photographed in Merida, Mexico"The War of the Apocalyptics" brings the saga of these little gods, as well as what's left of their much bigger progenitors, into the final fifth of the Twentieth Century our time (the Sixtieth Century of the Dome).

Back cover bluster promises what War-Pox delivers:

"From the creator of the PHANTACEA Mythos and the writer of ‘Feeling Theocidal’ comes Fallen Angel Devils, comes unrelenting Action, comes the Damnation Brigade, comes the first book of the Launch 1980 cycle."

Set on both the Outer and Inner Earth in 19/5980, War-Pox additionally contains a foreword and an afterword by the author. Moreover, as a bonus it ends with the third (originally the first) chapter of 1000-Daze, the immediate sequel to Feeling Theocidal and the second book in ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ trilogy.

War-Pox's Author's Afterword, reprinted here, with colour shots, is not to be missed. In it, Jim McPherson relates a number of Phantacea-specific Serendipitous Sightings he's experienced over the years, including what he spotted in the amazing picture the Egyptian air force took in the late 20s or early 30s of the Giza Plateau. That can't just be a parking lot can it.

The War of the Apocalyptics

<< Double-click images in this row to enlarge in a separate window >>
| Top of Page Search Engine | Back to beginning of Page Proper | Page Contents | Top of Section | Upwards | Downwards | Bottom of Page Ordering Lynx|

"The 1000 Days of Disbelief" comprises three distinct, complete-unto-itself mini-novels. Each tells of potentially cataclysmic challenges facing Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities.

No doubt to the Devil's dismay, what begins, perhaps, as a Sedonplay begets a Sedon Plague that necessitates a Sedon Purge.

The highly idiosyncratic manner that the wildly wilful Lazaremists deal with each new threat to their persistent dream of Panharmonium has ramifications for just about everyone alive — and, yes, even dead — right up to the night before the launching of the Cosmic Express from the Outer Earth's Centauri Island on November 30, 1980.

The Death's Head Hellion

Cover for The Death's Head Hellion, art prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010Tura's Allegory of Spring reminds me of Morgan Abyss, the Master of Weir circa 4825 YDIn 4825 Year of the Dome, forces loyal to the Death Gods of Frozen Lathakra threaten to overwhelm the Utopian Weirdom of Cabalarkon. Its demoniacally-empowered Master counterattacks mercilessly.

In the nearly 5,000 years since the Moloch Sedon preserved it from the Great Flood of Genesis, the Hidden Continent has never experienced such approaching apocalyptic devastation.

Set in the Year of the Dome 4824/5, Hellion presents a terrifying dilemma that Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities, freewheeling anarchists the loathsome load of them, must resolve lest the post-Thrygragon Era of Empires results in a second Genesea.

As for Master Morgan Abyss, it isn't a matter of better the Devil you know. It's a matter of, when dealing with the Devil above, singular and capitalized, never forget the devils below, small case and plural.

It's a lesson she learns all too rapidly. Ah, but is it a lesson she also learns all too fatally?

Contagion Collectors

Despite often violent suppression by forces blinkered by monotheistic absolutism, at the height of the Renaissance seekers after secrets are determined to discover all there is to know about the universe.

Datong Harmonia, collage by Jim McPherson ,2009Cover for Contagion Collectors, artwork prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010Yet, right here on the earth beneath their feet, there is no bigger secret than that there is a Cathonic Dome. The second biggest secret beyond the Cathonic Dome is that a continent the size of Africa lies underneath it.

Two hundred years earlier, someone who knew all there was to know about the Hidden Headworld was none other than the infamous, panpipes-playing Rat Catcher of Hamelin. He's still around, or one like him is. Call him Tomcat Tattletail if you like. It doesn't matter to him. He'll smile regardless.

Three Outer Earthlings you may have heard of play howsoever-insignificant roles in Contagion. They are Twisted Tommy (Tomas de Torquemada, age 56), Bosco (Hieronymous Bosch, age 26), and Dire (Albrecht Durer, age 4).

Dire and Drang (a hound, not yet a dachshund) are having a wonderful boy/dog adventure until four already much feared riders on psychopomp-steeds burst into their hence no longer exclusive paradise, the Garden of Earthy Delights.

As for the god by then sitting high above them all, in a Brainrock throne planted atop a mushroom cloud, he's the deviant half-son of two of the terrifying riders, the one with the buzzsaw-scales and the one with the bow and already notched arrow, who just happens to be the three other riders' Great God of a father.

Janna Fangfingers

Contagion Collectors aimed to destroy the Inner Earth’s Shining Ones, their devil-gods, by killing off those who would worship them – virtually everyone alive beneath the Cathonic Dome that encloses the Hidden Continent of Sedon’s Head.

Deviant and Devils collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011Full cover for Janna Fanfingers, text and collage by Jim McPherson, 2011Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities (Harmony, Chaos and Order) thought them sorted after they stormed the Hoodoo Hamlet in 5476 as the four fearsome Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

And so they had … except, it wasn't just the bringers who needed sorting. It was the poxes and plagues they brought.

The Hidden Headworld needed purging. There could be no doubt of that. Yet the Moloch Sedon had disappeared from the night’s sky years earlier and evinced no signs of returning. Everyone knew what needed to be done yet no one, especially not Thrygragos Everyman, the Lord Laziest of Great Gods, was willing to command the purge begun.

Then someone, ostensibly in the name of love, played a Trigregos Gambit. The Head lost its Balance, capitalized and female. Her immediate brothers regarded each other balefully. No longer restrained, a continental catastrophe of unprecedented proportions ensued.

With calamitous rapidity, nearly 500 years of Panharmonium gave way to seemingly endless despair. The Inner Earth’s populace lost faith in its devil-gods as by far the mightiest of them went at each other unrelentingly, unmindful of those they trampled beneath their rendered-gargantuan feet.

The Dead didn't stay dead, though. They rose, disbelievers no longer. They battled on, their newly puissant goddess to exalt the higher. Came All-Death Day there were more Dead Things marching than Living Beings breathing, let alone fighting back.

Fecundity no longer, the Vampire Queen of the Dead looked to rule the world – both sides of it!

E-versions of "Feeling Theocidal" and the three mini-novels comprising 1000-Daze were released on the Kindle platform in late 2011. E-versions of "The War of the Apocalyptics" and "Goddess Gambit" came out a year later. Digital Dragons, the Kindle version of "Nuclear Dragons", finally arrived in 2014.
There are lists of lynx to extracts from the novels, mini-novels and graphic novels starting here. An illustrated, book-specific character companion for the first mini-novel, "The Death's Head Hellion", begins here.

As detailed at a breathtaking pace in "Goddess Gambit", the Launching of the Cosmic Express has ultimately horrific ramifications on both sides of the Cathonic Zone.Haunted Dustmound, based on artwork by Verne Andru 2012

Collage made of images representative of The Trigregos Titan, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2012Better known as the Sedon Sphere on the Inner Earth of Sedon's Head, none is more immediately disastrous than in Hadd, the Land of the Ambulatory Dead.

Forces of the Living are attempting to re-conquer it. But if Nergal Vetala, the Blood Queen of the Dead, has her way the only thing they'll successfully do is swell her ranks.

Should her champion, by now the Trigregos Titan, triumph over her other foes – including some of her godlike elders in Thrygragos Varuna Mithras as well as her seemingly forever-superior cousins in Thrygragos Everyman and Bodiless Byron – it's not just the Inner Earth she and her thus bloodily bolstered forces will soon overwhelm.

Faced with the viperous menace of Nergal Vetala and her slavish but potentially supremely powerful, devil-slaying soldier, even the usually never-remembered Smiling Fiend has no choice except to do his best imitation of a good guy — to no avail.

Loxus Abraham Ryne, the eighty year old head of SPACE  ('The Society for the Prevention of Alien Control of Earth')? A couple of middle-aged, newly-minted supranormals named Doc Defiance and Mr. No Name?

A twenty-seven year old who neither knows who his parents were nor what an Amoeba Man was? An obesity who knows far more than he should but is disinclined to share that knowledge with anyone, not even his own son? Or maybe, just maybe, a notorious little trickster who has been seven years old for something like sixty years!

Truth told: How can anyone stop Nuclear Dragons!

"Hear me, fascists, Helios is on the Moon destroying you!"

Scientists first detect signals coming from somewhere out in space in early 1978. Their excitement's palpable. Finally they've proof humanity isn't alone in the cosmos.

Then, about a month after their initial detection, the source is pinpointed. Elation immediately gives way to near-panic.

In an extraordinary session of the Security Council, the United Nations agrees to meet this off-worldly intrusion aggressively. The result, the UNES Liberty, is already in moon orbit when, on the Thirtieth of November 1980, the launching of the Cosmic Express takes place on Centauri Island.

At the same time, on the far off Utopia of New Weir, three Great Goddesses preside over the latest session of the Courtroom of the Visionary. Meanwhile, on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head, the Death Gods of Frozen Lathakra rededicate themselves to reuniting their fragmented family, devils almost to a one.

The Dual Entities have returned to their own timeline determined to make life for everyone not just vastly better, but perfect.

Oh, oh.

Wilderwitch and Blind Sundown likenesses, shots by Jim McPherson taken in Vienna and MeridaRollover featuring an adjusted cover for the Damnation Brigade graphic novel and Tariqartha with a mandroidAs told in "Goddess Gambit", before transporting himself, the Diver, Kronokronos Akbarartha, Wildman Dervish Furie, Blind Sundown and Raven's Head to Hadd, the Land of the Dead, Ringleader (Harry Zeross) left three members of the Damnation Brigade behind in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon to be tended by its Master, Saladin Devason, and his few, altogether functional Utopians.

One of these was Wilderwitch. Ringleader probably would have been appalled at how the Master looked after her. Assuming he survived the final battle for Dustmound, which in fact he didn't even see. Assuming, then, that he survived "Helios on the Moon".

The other two left behind were Radiant Rider (Gloriella D'Angelo Dark) and D-Brig's leader, Cyborg Cerebrus (David Ryne). Couldn't do much worse than the latter, who'd lost most of his headplate, what made him a cyborg in the first place. The good news about that was it turned out to be Utopian technology. The really bad news is that it's so damaged he has to be submerged in a tub of not so much life- as animation-suspending Cathonic Fluid.

Similarly submerged, in the crypt next door to his, is none other than Cabalarkon (Cabby the Daddy), the Undying Utopian who may well be the oldest, still (sort of) living mortal in the cosmos. That he's still around, and occasionally capable of Wayfaring in the Wild Weird, is entirely due to the the fact that the Moloch Sedon regards him as his father. And guess who visits the Weirdom every Mithramas?

Which in the Weirdom is now known as Zmas Day, after Harry himself.

The opening mini-novel in 'Wilderwitch's Babies', the latest epic fantasy featuring Jim McPherson's Phantacea Mythos, is entitled "Decimation Damnation".

Final full cover for Decimation Damnation, cover collage and text by Jim McPherson, 2016

DecDam is the first mini-novel extracted from the open-ended saga of 'Wilderwitch's Babies'. "Destination Damnation" and "Tsishah's Twilight" are scheduled to follow within the next year or so.

That may change of course. What won't change are the main characters. And, while the sunset in background may be suggestive of Blind Sundown, the book is not entitled 'Sunset for Sundown'.

He is, as per here, only one of the ten original members of the Damnation Brigade. In other words, like the face-dancing Witch and Raven's Head, who do appear on the final cover, he's due -- overdue, according to too many -- for decimation.

Daemonic Desperation

Promo collage entitled Daemonic Desperation

There's a reason Wilderwitch remains alive long enough to get pregnant. There's a reason her soul-self does too; making that two (pregnancies).

Has to do the hooded thought-widow the still-recovering Demios Sarpedon spots on what he subsequently should have started calling Demon Mound.

Raven's Head also counts as one of D-Brig's original members.

Preferred Frontispiece for digital edition

Probably Front Cover for digital edition

Wilderwitch is a face-dancer. That means she can alter her appearance by mentally manipulating her external aura; not that her face dances or that a skeletal revenant replaces her mouth.

She should have been killed in Temporis near the end of "The War of the Apocalyptics". She wasn't. She should have at least lost a leg. She didn't.

And that's about it for the good news.

Probable online image for digital edition of "Decimation Damnation"

Probable cover for digital edition of "Decimation Damnation"

Two of D-Brig's members have already been decimated, as in deducted from the original roll-call of ten strong. Appearances to the contrary, one of them is not Cyborg Cerebrus, their erstwhile leader and the fellow who so ill-advisedly named them thusly.

Neither are they the Untouchable Diver and Ringleader, an honourary member since rescuing what was left of D-Brig in Sisert and taking them to 'safety' in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon, aka Sedon's Eye-Land.

The already lost two, the Elemental Twins, reputedly have a distant sister, the Mirror Mentalist. She's an immortal azura. Rather, she thinks she is ... immortal, that is.

Babies' overall main page is here. Character Companion for the mini-novel is here. There are entries re Ringleader and the Weirdom of Cabalarkon on pH-Webworld. Cover proved unusable for print edition due to printing issues re degree of blackness.

 

Images for cover collages

Gif presenting images on front cover

Wilderwitch already has one child, Fey Woman. She's bodily older than her mother. Seems further that D-Brig weren't the only ones Demon Land brought back from Limbo on the 30th of November 1980 on D-Isle.

As per War-Pox and "Nuclear Dragons", that one is didn't come back whole, however. The Witch is his aunt. She's hardly the only one who reckons him long overdue for decimation.

One of those last isn't her daughter. Even more worryingly Fey can bodily traverse the Weird; can even get through the Cathonic Dome.

'Babies' promo using digital cover

Wilderwitch's Babies promo using digital front cover, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2016

A great deal, very little of it good, happens to Wilderwitch in DecDam besides
a) being preservatively demonized and
b) getting doubly pregnant almost immediately after Ringleader left her in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon under the care of its Master, Saladin Devason.

A round-up of most of the images that went into this promo can be found beginning here. The main entry on Saladin born Nauroz, who previously featured most notably in "Goddess Gambit", can be found on pH-Webworld.

Turns out it isn't the Conquering Christ either

Raven Rock promo, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2-16

In contrast to this promotional graphic, John Sundown should also be wearing a blindfold; the Moai isn't so much a between-space stone gnome as a Lemurian guard-body; Dand Tariqartha is a star in the night's sky above Sedon's Head; and, when last we saw him (in "Helios on the Moon"), the real Boulder Brain Conqueror had just lost his head on Lunar Trigon.

The Dual Entities are Heliosophos and Miracle Memory. More simply known as Helios and Mnemosyne, or Memory, they represent the Sun and the Moon not just in the Phantacea Mythos

The apparent friendship between them, albeit as Sol and Luna, and (Thrygragos Varuna) Mithras featured prominently in the rituals of Cave Mithraism, as performed more than two thousand years ago amongst Roman Legionnaires.

"Nuclear Dragons"

The 'Launch 1980' story cycle continued in "Nuclear Dragons". It was largely based on the Centauri Island sequences that began in Phantacea One and Two.

It, too, was supposed to come to an explosive conclusion in Phantacea Seven. Indeed, Ian Bateson's stunning cover was originally roughed out for just that, pH-7

Three from the back cover of "Helios on the Moon"

Yajur, Strife & All, artwork by Ricardo Sandoval, 2014

Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur, All of Incain (though acting nowhere near as tamely as she looks) and Miracle Memory all appear in Hel-Moon

Memory isn't always altogether Memory, however; she probably isn't occupying Night (the future Ereba Thanatos) at the start either

Heard of Strife, from "Nuclear Dragons" and before that many of the pH-Webworld web-serials? How about Primeval Lilith, most prominently from "The Death's Head Hellion"?

Memory seizes control of the Liberty

Among those on the UNES Liberty when the Mnemosyne Machine aspect of Miracle Memory remotely takes over its controls are Professor Romaine Kinesis and OJ 'Big Max' Maxwell from "Nuclear Dragons"

They don't stay Normie Normalmen for long. Their transformation has nothing to do with the Magellan Toe Brains they're served during their repast with the past, as hosted by the Dual Entities, though

It has, rather, everything to do with the Cosmic Express's secondary, not to mention teleportive, fuel, Gypsium Godstuff, aka Brainrock

Larger Defiance & No Name artwork by Gene Day, taken from pH-4, 1979; smaller Defiance and No Name figures, as well as Liberty, are by Ricardo Sandoval, 2014; collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

The Black Rose of Anarchy

Collage employing images from Phantacea comics, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

Rom Kinesis, Big Max Maxwell, Mik Starrus and Kadmon Heliopolis briefly come into play during "The War of the Apocalyptics", albeit only in a couple of flashback sequences;

However, Starrus, Kinesis and Max have been in phantacea since pH-1, 1977; as per here, Heliopolis as Helios on the Moon first appeared on the front cover of pH-3, 1978;

The Black Rose artwork, which features Mik Starrus and Lord Order, is by Peter Lynde, from pH-3, 1978; the larger versions of Doc Defiance and the Indescribable Mr No Name are by Gene Day, from pH-4, 1979;

Who's possessing Helios anyhow?

Shot and layout by Jim McPherson, Helios by Ricardo Sandoval, 2014

The Female Entity, often aka Miracle Memory, thinks it's Future Order (Lord Vajra, no longer Lord Yajur), from their 99th Lifetimes.

She may actually believe that's true, too. Then again she reckons Future Night (Erebe Thanatos) is humanizing her. Could be she's just as wrong about that.

In any case, her male counterpart, Helios called Sophos the Wise (Heliosophos), doesn't agree with her assertions. He doesn't think anyone's possessing him.

Being a time-tumbler, he might yet prove himself right in that regard. However, as per the graphic, certain indicators strongly argue otherwise.

Helio-Humour in 2014

Photo and meshing by Jim McPherson, 2014; Helios by Ricardo Sandoval, 2014

You too can stick your head in the hole and become for a shot ... probably the Sun King, since Jim McPherson, the creator/writer of the Phantacea Mythos, took this shot in Versailles, the onetime home of Louis XIV.

As the caption gives away, it wasn't in 1980, though.

The Dual Entities are time-tumblers, not time-travellers. They fall through time randomly so, even if the events described in the 'Launch 1980' story cycle occurred during Helios's 100th Lifetime, he could easily have spent part of an earlier one in France, ca 2014.

As rather strongly suggested in "Forever & Forty Days -- the Genesis of Phantacea", he was in Versailles during Louis's reign. Indeed, all due apologies to Alexander Dumas ("The Man in the Iron Mask"), he might even have been Louis.

The 'Launch 1980' Collage Collective

Collection of collages prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

Three full-length novels, as well as parts of both "Janna Fangfingers" and "Goddess Gambit" comprise the story cycle.

That makes it an ensemble piece, meaning a lot happens, to a lot of characters, in a lot of different places, over the course of roughly ten days. While nary a one might be considered a hero per se, there's plenty of derring-do.

The two seemingly collecting the collages are shown in the top corners. Some two thousand years ago, when their images were crafted, their generic names were Sol and Luna.

In the Phantacea Mythos, they're the Dual Entities. They're also both on the moon, the reason why everyone else goes there.

Have to say, though, "The Dual Entities on the Moon" doesn't have quite the ring you'd want in a book title.

Did anyone survive Gambit?

Background collage utilizing characters on the front cover of Cataclysm Catalyst, artwork by Verne Andru, 2013; prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

A valid question. Either everyone who hadn't died already in "Goddess Gambit" did, or something happened to all those still alive and left behind once the Godbadian air force reached Diminished Dustmound.

As for the fates of some of those in serious trouble at the end of "Nuclear Dragons", which wasn't set on Sedon's Head, well, conclusions made after reading either book are as valid as conclusions made after reading "The War of the Apocalyptics".

After All (capitalized), which is how it ends, "Helios on the Moon" isn't just set on the moon. More here

Daemonic Royalty

Lilith and Daemonicus, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010

Original Demon King Daemonicus and Primeval Lilith are back.

Well, speculatively, if not so much explicitly, in "Helios on the Moon" anyway. Daemons (or demons, if you prefer) can humanize Miracle Memory, too.

Indeed, as per 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' epic trilogy, it's only because they occupy debrained daemonic bodies that Master Devas can even become solid individuals

Kitty Dulled

Polarized version of background for Kitty Clysm

This sequence doesn't happen in any of the 'Launch 1980' mosaic novels; its aftermath does.

Which is to say, Harry Zeross and Freespirit Nihila make very significant contributions to "Helios on the Moon". There are some zombie leftovers, too.

Which in turn helps explain this remark and the query found in the last panel here

No escape from virtually all of their devic half-children. either; nor said kids' other set of half-parents. One guess where most of them turn up.

The epic 'Launch 1980' fantasy trilogy

Cover for pHz1 by Ian Bateson, 1985; collage by Jim McPherson, 2014

... starts with the launching of the Cosmic Express. But did you know that it wasn't just New Century Enterprises behind it?

You will, once you read Hel-Moon, which effectively marks the end of Phantacea Phase One.

"The War of the Apocalyptics" ensues; "Nuclear Dragons" explode; "Helios on the Moon" climaxes -- as does, as it happens, Mars Bellona, who's pictured in lower right corner of pHz1 cover.

Big Mistake, Maelstrom

DBrig graphic novel cover reversed for Launch 1980 promo by Jim McPherson, 2014

Now that you've got hold of the Elemental Twins' power foci and thereby thoroughly annoyed the newly re-solidified Damnation Brigade, you better flee.

Won't do you much good, though. Indeed, the launching of the Cosmic Express will prove a very bad day for you and yours.

And not just in War-Pox either. Your Thrygragos of an Unmoving father should have never have committed to building the Express.

(Who did you think was occupying the Fatman's Untouchables in, most notably, "Nuclear Dragons" anyhow?)

Waiting in the Wings

She-Sphinx, Nihila, King Cold, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

On the Hidden Continent: Freespirit Nihila, old Kind Cold and All of Incain, to name the three pictured.

The Phantom Freighter, Crystallion and Hell's Horsemen had to have come from somewhere. And if one of the Atomic Idiots (Mithras's Torchbearers) powers nuclear dragons, who do you think powers All while the Idiot's otherwise occupied?

No, it's not Nihila, but one of them is pictured. He's married to the other, Heat to his Cold. And they did have a bunch of children, fourth generation devils all. Guess where a half-dozen of them end up?

Whose face is All wearing? Rather, wearing before she got all Nemesis-like, again, on Sedon's Head after events told in Gambit. Any guesses where she gets to before Hel-Moon ends?

Where dwell the thrice-cursed Sisters

Starrus Yajur reach New Weir, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

They haven't been seen since "Forever & Forty Days -- the Genesis of Phantacea" but they, the three simultaneous mothers of devakind, have always been around.

They're just really, really faraway. Or were, until the Wandering SAG Gap gets itself relocated near the Moon. And who might have done that?

Hint: All of Incain doesn't just wear pre-Nihila's face.

Phantacea One

pH1 cover by Dave Sim, 1977

Artwork by Dave Sim, 1977

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: Most of Dave Sim's Launching of the Cosmic Express sequence reappeared in "Phantacea Revisited: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB). Four pages also appeared in "Phantacea Revisited 2: Cataclysm Catalyst" (Rv2:CC).

The Launch sequence was included as a bonus chapter in the Phantacea Mythos mosaic novel "Goddess Gambit". The complete sequence features in "Nuclear Dragons".

Phantacea Two

pH2 cover by Gordon Parker, 1978

Artwork by Gordon Parker, 1978

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: A couple of pages of Gordon Parker's depiction of the encounter between Rom Kinesis (pre Doc Defiance) and Devil Wind were reprinted in "Phantacea Revisited: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB). That entire sequence was novelized in "Nuclear Dragons".

Sean Newton's impressive opening installment of the Soldier's Saga reappears in "Phantacea Revisited 2: Cataclysm Catalyst" (Rv2:CC). The Uncle Universe sequence is retold in the Phantacea Mythos mosaic novel "Helios on the Moon".

Phantacea Three Obverse

pH3 front cover, artwork by Richard Sandoval, 1978

Artwork by Richard Sandoval, 1978

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: None of the Helios on the Moon sequences in this issue were reproduced in either "Phantacea Revisited: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB) or in "Phantacea Revisited 2: Cataclysm Catalyst" (Rv2:CC) due to the pHantacea-pHact it's a different storyline.

It is, however, retold in the Phantacea Mythos mosaic novel "Helios on the Moon". Its cover was also done by (nowadays) Ricardo Sandoval, albeit in 2014

Phantacea Three Verso

Back cover for pH3 by Ian Bateson, 1978

Artwork by Ian Bateson, 1978

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: Reproductions of virtually all of the sequences drawn by Verne Andrusiek, Carl Muecke and Ian Bateson for the flip side of this issue appear in "Phantacea Revisited: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB).

Exceptions are pages that have been digitally re-lettered by Jim McPherson.

Phantacea Four

pH4 front cover, artwork by Ian Bateson, 1979

Artwork by Ian Bateson, 1979

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: Only reproductions of the Byronic Nucleus sequences drawn by Ian Bateson appear in "Phantacea Revisited: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB).

Tim Hammell's map of Sedon's Head from pH-3 reappears after the Bateson sequence in the graphic novel. A couple of Verne Andrusiek's pages from this issue also appear in context. Like parts of the map page, Jim McPherson digitally re-lettered aspects of these pages for purposes of clarity.

Phantacea Five

pH5 cover by Ian Bateson over Verne Andrusiek's inks, 1979/80, 19

Inks largely by Verne Andrusiek, 1979/80; Cover coloured, typeset and partially redrawn by Ian Bateson, 1980

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: Reproductions of virtually all the sequences drawn by Ian Bateson, Vince Marchesano, various Day Brothers & unaccredited friends, Tim Hammell and George Freeman (with Verne Andrusiek) appear in "Phantacea Revisited: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB).

Phantacea Six

pH6 cover by Verne Andrusiek, 1980

Artwork by Verne Andrusiek, 1980

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: Verne Andrusiek drew this entire 32-page issue. It concludes the Soldier's Saga begun in pH-2 by Sean Newton and carried on in issues #4 & #5 by Verne Andrusiek.

Most of the material prepared for the Soldier's Saga reappear in "Phantacea Revisited 2: Cataclysm Catalyst" (Rv2:CC). This time, though, Jim McPherson has painstakingly corrected myriad typos as well as added some judicious updates digitally.

Phantacea Seven (unfinished)

Unfinished cover for pH7, artwork by Ian Bateson ca 1980

Artwork by Ian Bateson, 1980

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: This issue was supposed to conclude both the Launching of Cosmic Express and the Helios on the Moon story cycles. Unfortunately producing it proved a logistical nightmare and it was abandoned.

Only Ian Bateson's Hell's Horsemen sequence was drawn and lettered. Those pages as they were initially submitted can be seen here. The same pages, digitally re-lettered by Jim McPherson in 2014, have finally seen print in "Phantacea Revisited 2: Cataclysm Catalyst" (Rv2:CC).

Phantacea Phase One #1

Phase One cover by Ian Bateson, 1986

Artwork by Ian Bateson, 1987

Original web-presence preserved here

Note: Some the material Ian Bateson redid over Dave Sim's original appears in "Phantacea Revisited 1: The Damnation Brigade" (Rv1:DB).

All of the Devil Wind v/s Demon Land material that Ian Bateson drew for pHz1 #2 also finally sees print in Rv1:DB.

There may be no cure for aphantasia (defined as 'having a blind or absent mind's eye') but there certainly is for aphantacea ('a'='without', like the 'an' in 'anheroic')
