Merry Mithramas Bonus … Boxed on Boxing Day

Perhaps not surprisingly the Mithramas update of Serendipity and … isn’t so much about devils and their devilments in the Phantacea Mythos, though it is that. Its main purpose is to show off some nifty optical diableries from the 1870s and tell pHantaJIm‘s true story re receiving an email from Mephistopheles in the mid to late 1990s.

Also contains reiterations of a couple of Dave Sim pages from pH-1 (1977) and a cut-out of a Frank Frazetta so obscure it didn’t google up online. Ended up having to scan it in from a picture book that precedes Phantacea.

Oh yes, entry contains some actual diablerie stereoscope shots as well. Have some sample artwork
