The Phantom: Danger in the Forbidden City (Hard Cover and Trade Paperback) are now available for pre-order. (Click here to pre-order) The book collects the 6 issue mini series, written by Peter David and illustrated by yours truly. (With colors by Eugenio Mattozzi) Both editions will be presented at the San Diego Comic Con ( July 21-24, 2016)
For the occasion, I would like to offer a creator’s perspective on the making of this critically acclaimed comic book miniseries. It’s a story of a long journey through peaks of enthusiasm and valleys of disappointment. I decided to entitle it “The Agony and the Ecstasy” since it sounded more elegant than “Comics are Lke Sausages: It’s Better not to See Them Being Made.”
So, if you don’t mind eating sausage while on a journey through agony and ecstasy, claim aboard, fasten your seat belts and hang on tight, for the next few weeks. See you soon!
