PORTLAND, Ore. 12/22/2022 — Eisner Award winning creator Jeff Lemire (The Bone Orchard Mythos, Little Monsters ) and Eisner Award winning artist Gabriel Hernández Walta (The Vision, Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: Old Man Whittier ) reunite after their Sentient success with a bold new series titled, Phantom Road. The grindhouse horror/fantasy mashup will hit shelves in March 2023 from Image Comics.

« As soon as I first worked with Gabriel on Sentient I knew he was a collaborator I needed to do more with. We began talking about a big creator-owned series at Image, » said Lemire in an exclusive on the announcement with ScreenRant. « Something massive in scope like all the books we loved when we were getting into comics. Something with the scope of Preacher and Sandman and The Walking Dead . We began putting ideas together and Phantom Road is the result. A sprawling mash-up of sci-fi, horror and character driven road movie. We can’t wait to share it with everyone. »

Walta added: « Working on Phantom Road is such a gift! Doing a creator-owned book with Jeff is something I’ve been wanting to do for many years and having the chance to collaborate with Jordie, Steve, and Greg is a real joy. Also… seeing the Image logo in our book is just a blast!! »

Phantom Road follows Dom, a long-haul truck driver attempting to stay ahead of his tragic past. When he stops one night to assist Birdie, who has been in a massive car crash, they pull an artifact from the wreckage that throws their lives into fifth gear. Suddenly, a typical midnight run has become a frantic journey through a surreal world where Dom and Birdie find themselves the quarry of strange and impossible monsters.

Mad Max: Fury Road meets The Sandman in this high-octane adventure wrapped in a dark fantasy aesthetic.

Phantom Road #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 8.

Phantom Road #1 will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.

Je suis pas fan de Lemire, mais la présence de Walta rend la chose intéressante.

J’ai lu les deux premiers, ça me fait penser à la saga de film Phantasm, avec cette ambiance monde parallèle et être chelou…

NEW STORY ARC ! JEFF LEMIRE and GABRIEL HERNÁNDEZ WALTA’s hit series returns!Birdie and Dom find themselves searching through an abandoned road-side circus when they discover hints of…life. Elsewhere, Agent Weaver enlists Deputy Donnie to help piece together the frantic clues they have amassed so far.

En ce qui me concerne, c’est une déception. Les planches de GHW sont superbes. Mais l’histoire est trop lente et chaque épisode ne révèle pas grand chose au lecteur. Je n’irai pas plus loin.
