The Return Of Phonogram By Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie And Matt Wilson

Man, oh man, oh man.

It is one of my favourite comic books ever.

Not enough people bought it to make it a going concern at Image Comics, but for those who did, it was  life changing, or life affirming, or just a really really good comic book that they wanted to tell everyone about.

And at Image Comics Expo this week, it looks like we will be seeing the return of Phonogram, by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson. The story of a bunch of young phonomancers, music magicians, in and around the Britpop and club scene.

Since the end of the second series, and possibly the comics highlight of the noughties, Kieron Gillen has gone on to write Marvel's best selling comic, Uncanny X-Men. Jamie has drawn some of it. Matt has coloured some as well. Their profiles are far higher than they ever were. And they still keep getting asked when they're bringing back Phonogram. Often it's me asking.

And, courtesy of this flyer from iFanboy, it looks like it's coming back. One more time. Daft Punk reference there, obviously.
