Peter David And Sal Velluto Bring Back The Phantom

Phantom poster promo WEBsm (1)Hermes Press, already bringing back Buck Rogers in comics form, are also looking to create new stories for another pulp hero of the past.

Peter David and Sal Velluto are creating a new six issue mini-series for Lee Falk's The Phantom starting in September and are, according to the publisher, expanding "the canon of one of comics' greatest legends by embracing the character and his history, and by building on it.  We want to create new stories that Lee Falk would be proud of!"

While Peter David describes the story as one that he has "literally been thinking about for a couple of decades."

The comic will have variant covers by Velluto, Alex Saviuk and Graham Nolan. A poster by Velluto, as seen above, will be released at San Diego Comic Con to promote the series.
