Still no sign of Psycho — except on the Simpsons

Well, it worked last time up, so let’s try another …

Haven’t watched anything on Fox, not even football, for decades. Still this really is Psycho. Which is also the name of a Phantacea Mythos character, albeit as a brain in a box, last seen in “Nuclear Dragons“.

Having, thanks to his sister, Aranyani Nightingale, who first appeared nearly forty years ago in Phantacea 1 (September 1977, see back cover shot of Aran and a few others as drawn by Dave Sim way back then) avoided becoming a light snack, he’ll be back in quest of the rest of his body whenever “Destination Damnation” gets published.

“Hidden Headgames” will come out before it, though, later in year.

Seems there isn’t a handy shot of Psycho Saul Ryne from the PHANTACEA comic book series readily available. Remind with a comment below and there soon will be.

That’s Europa Heliopolis, not the continent or Jupiter’s moon, at least not entirely

Graphic reads "Annuling Nihila", prepared by Jim McPherson

2012 composite graphic prepared by Jim McPherson utilizing artwork for Verne Andru and Pacheco, as spotted and shot in Merida ca 2010. Nihila will be reappearing in “Hidden Headgames” this year (2017)

Lower insert taken from pHantacea on pHacebook using the embed feature. Something of an announcement to note herein. More once “Hidden Headgames” gets nearer to its release date.

In the meantime have another graphic ==> and a different set of lynx connecting the one below.

Freespirit Nihila appears in the sequence promised below, which marks the return of Europa Heliopolis to the Phantacea Mythos after a fifteen to twenty year absence.

Hit here for a couple of mentions of Europa during the “Aspects of Amoebaman” web-serial and here for a 5980 spoiler that may or may not have made it to “Decimation Damnation“.

Something like it will certainly make it to “Hidden Headgames”, however.

Cathead Coming

Kind of nifty. Like the three eyes. Not so sure about the cat’s head, though there is a Cathead in the Phantacea Mythos, hence why it’s on pHantaBlog.

Goes by the Illuminary given name of Cathune Bubastis. She’s the Apocalyptic of Drought and, yes, she does have three eyes. She’s also the brood sister of Pyrame Silverstar and the devil child Tralalorn, who might actually be a self-determinedly never-aging demon child.

Based on an Egyptian Goddess from the second millennia BC, if not earlier, Drought¬† has a linchpin role in “The Forgotten Fiend”. (Hit here if you’ve forgotten who he is,) Or does she? Hmm …

Fiend’s a story sequence originally written to lead into “The War of the Apocalyptics“.
It’s one of the three now interlinked ‘preludes’ or extended vignettes that conspired to form “Hidden Headgames”. In its case that’s mostly because it got tired hunkering down inside PHANTACEA computers with nowhere else to go since the early 90s.

BTW, the other two sequences are “Pyrame’s Progress” and “Acquiring Nihila”. The latter’s titular character appeared throughout “Goddess Gambit“. Plus, somewhat less pivotally, showed up ‘bigly’ in “Helios on the Moon“.

The titular character in the former mainly features in “Feeling Theocidal“, where Tralalorn also struts her stuff. And her Chimera.¬† Pyrame also has fairly significant roles in both “The Death’s Head Hellion” and “Contagion Collectors“.

Headgames is coming in late Spring, early Summer 2017 from Phantacea Publications.

Not sure how well this will work if you’re not also on Facebook, but hit the play button and see for yourself. If it doesn’t click into psychedelic action immediately, the ‘https’ link beneath image should get you to the ‘woo’ animation.
