Announcing PHANTOM ROAD!
A new ongoing series by Jeff Lemire, Gabriel Walta and Jordie Bellaire in March!
JEFF LEMIRE & GABRIEL WALTA GO FULL THROTTLE IN UPCOMING GRINDHOUSE SCI-FI SERIES—PHANTOM ROAD—THIS MARCH
Eisner Award winning creators Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Gideon Falls) and Gabriel Hernández Walta (The Vision) 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. 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 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.”
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.
