PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The entire Damnation Brigade storyline compiled at long last
VANCOUVER, BC: Phantacea Publications is delighted to announce the release of its second full-length graphic novel: “Phantacea Revisited 1: The Damnation Brigade”.
A rip-roaring outburst of creativity featuring Jim McPherson’s taut storytelling and spectacular artwork gleaned from the pages of Phantacea 1-5 (1977-1980), Phantacea Phase One #1 (1987) and #2 (unpublished), it presents the stirring saga of extraterrestrial Shining Ones and the doomed but unyielding Damnation Brigade.
Anheroic Fantasy Illustrated, with a wraparound cover by Phantacea’s master colourist Ian Bateson and 120 pages of interior artwork in glorious black and white by a wide variety of exceptional artists often at the very beginning of their careers, the two-part Phantacea Revisited series reveals how Jim McPherson’s ongoing Phantacea Mythos really got underway.
Artists featured in the graphic novel include Dave Sim (from just before he began to publish Cerebus the Aardvark), the aforementioned Ian Bateson, Verne Andru (creator of ‘420’), Vince Marchesano, various Day brothers and George Freeman (‘Captain Canuck’). Ordering information is here.
