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and spectacular artwork gleaned from the pages of Phantacea 1-5 (1977-1980), Phantacea Phase One #1 (1987) and #2 (unpublished), it presents the stirring saga of extraterrestrial Shining Ones and the doomed but unyielding Damnation Brigade.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.

  2. So it’s out. Great. Just googled up Phantacea Revisited. It shows on Google Books. Guess that’s the good news. No cover. Links don’t go anywhere either. Guess that’s just b/c and maintain a constant presence on site. Some of your other books link from there but the author refers to some politico in Alberta. The lack of cover and author lynx, to use your spelling, should be correctable.
    Good luck. I’m still a reader but I bet ancient comics collections sells way better than your books. Too bad.

    • I’ll look into updating Google Books info. Have to admit I’ve no idea how the link appeared in first place. Possibly because it has a CIP? Any other notions? Because I made mention of it on Google+, perhaps. But you’re right. pHRev1:DB does google. So does pHantBlog. Credit Google then.

      • This is proving more difficult than I thought it would. I managed to get them all listed but still can’t figure out how to add their covers to Google Books. I’ll get it eventually. Then, hey, you might even be able to read parts of the books online. Maybe even part of pHRev, though having only written it, not drawn it, I’m not sure how kosher that would be. Check back here another day, blog_me.
