THE PHANTOM: HERMES PRESS COMIC SERIES

Dan and the folks at Hermes Press have been busy putting together new publications that are sure to excite Spy Vibers. Hermes is committed to celebrating classic comic and pop culture with archival editions printed with high-quality papers, color, and resolution. They have already made a big splash with their re-prints of Gold Key comic book classics like Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Time Tunnel, Land of the Giants, and Dark Shadows. Today Hermes Press released the first in a new series of comic book reprints of the ghost who walks, The Phantom! Hermes has been releasing beautiful collections of the original Phantom comic strips and these new volumes add the many comic book editions to their catalog. More info at the Hermes Press website.

Amazon lists a number of Phantom titles from Hermes, including today's release of
The Phantom The Complete Series: The Gold Key Years Volume One. I encourage Spy Vibers to take advantage of the low Amazon prices, by the way. These books traditionally have high cover prices (they're worth it!) and, like those rare Cinema Retro issues (see last post), they become quite collectible once they are out of print.


From Amazon: The 1960s comic book adventures of
The Phantom return in full, glorious color! This series of collections, which consists of eight volumes, spans 15 years and starts by assembling all 17 Gold Key The Phantom comic books into two volumes. Featuring cover art by famed painter George Wilson with interior artwork by Bill Lignante and stories by Bill Harris, the Gold Key comic book version of the grand-daddy of costumed heroes, the Ghost Who Walks, is now available, digitally remastered! The Phantom The Complete Series: The Gold Key Years Volume One reprints issues #1-8.

Hermes Press will follow up with additional Phantom re-prints this winter. On January 10th, they will release
The Phantom The Complete Series: The Charlton Years Volume One.


From Amazon: The late 1960s comic book adventures of The Phantom return in full, glorious color! Hermes Press is collecting, all 74 issues of The Phantom comic books which ran from 1962-1977, and this volume begins the Charlton years. Volume One of The Charlton Years picks up with The Phantom #30, the first Charlton issue, and features all The Phantom stories from issues #30-#40. Volume One of The Chartlon years features cover art by Frank Mclaughlin and Jim Aparo; interior art by Don Perlin, Jim Aparo, and Bill Lignante; and stories by Dick Wood and Jim Aparo. The Charlton comic book version of the grand-daddy of costumed heroes, the Ghost Who Walks, is available again, digitally remastered to look better than the original books.

And on February 14th, Hermes will release The Phantom The Complete Series: The King Years.


From Amazon: The mid-1960s comic book adventures of The Phantom return in full, glorious color! Hermes Press is collecting all 74 issues of The Phantom comic books which ran from 1962-1977, and this volume features the King years. This volume picks up with The Phantom #18, the first King issue, and features all The Phantom stories from issues #18-28. Featuring cover and interior art by Bill Lignante, the King comic book version of the grand-daddy of costumed heroes, the Ghost Who Walks, is available again, digitally remastered to look better than the original books.
