Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie And Matt Wilson Announced At Image Expo

As suspected a few days ago, a new Phonogram series, called The Immaterial Girl, by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie And Matt Wilson has just been announced at Image Expo. Here's the teaser:

Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie And Matt Wilson Announced At Image Expo

In addition to the above teaser, Gillen had this to say about The Immaterial Girl on his blog:

THE IMMATERIAL GIRL will be six issues. We've talked a little about what a hypothetical third Phonogram would be about in interviews, and almost all of that is in here. It's primarily about the war between coven queen witch Emily Aster and the half of her personality she sold to whatever lies on the other side of the screen. It's about identity, eighties music videos and further explorations of Phonogram's core "Music = Magic" thesis. There is horror. There are jokes. There are emotions. There may even be a fight sequence. It also takes A-ha's Take On Me with far too much seriousness – which, for us, is the correct amount of seriousness.

Thirdly, for those who don't know about Phonogram, don't worry. While part of a larger sequence, all Phonograms stand alone and can be consumed in any order. For example, we normally recommend people start with our second volume, THE SINGLE CLUB. What we're saying is "You should feel free to start here." Of course, if you want to run out and buy all the fine Phonogram product, we're not going to try and talk you out of it.

Fourthly, we're not talking about single-issue format yet. In fact, we may not talk about it at all and have it a surprise what you find inside each time. We hate to repeat ourselves.

More info coming from Rich on this matter in a few hours, I believe.
