Before The Phantom

I just wanted to share a memento of a fortuitous encounter between three members of Team Fantomen that happened way before, all three of them, got to draw The Phantom.
The year was 1997.
The artists were  Don Perlin, Dick Giordano and Sal Velluto.
The project was a limited lithograph, produced by Joe Petrilak, head of the Valiant Fan Club, as part of the "Acclaim Ink" fan club program.  The lithograph was titled "VH-1 Bloodshot meets the VH-2 Bloodshot" and depicted both the Valiant and Acclaim versions of Bloodshot drawn by the respective artist of each book, Don Perlin and Sal Velluto. Here's what the Lithograph looked like. (Thanks to Magnus Ramström for the scan) What do you think?

P.S. I still have a few original pages for sale, from my run on Bloodshot (But not this particular lithograph) If you're interested, check my Art For Sale page.

  1. What a good day to find this blog. I cherish this print. Great art and a symbol of what fandom can do together with great artists that care for the fans.
