The critically acclaimed, best selling complete reprint of The Phantom continues!
Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the “granddaddy of all costumed superheroes,” The Phantom was created in 1936 by Lee Falk with artwork by Ray Moore. The strip hit the funny pages of newspapers well before the Dark Knight or Superman made their first appearances and has been acknowledged as an influence on every “masked man of mystery” since. The Phantom set the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books - it has frequently been copied but never equaled.
This exciting 17th volume begins the SY BARRY YEARS! Reprinted in all its black and white glory, journey with Hermes Press as we bring you four complete continuities drawn by Sy himself: “The Slave Market of Mucar,” “The Epidemic,” “The Wharf Rats,” and “The Mysterious Ambassador.” Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature’s proofs. Included in the volume is a comprehensive essay and documentary materials.

COMING SUMMER 2018
From Ron Goulart, writer of Good Girl Art, comes a second volume even more exciting than the first! Cover is by Frank Thorne.
International Cheesecake: Good Girl Comics Around the World by Ron Goulart; 9.25 x 12.25 inches; full color; hardcover book; printed laminated cover; endpapers; over 400 illustrations; July 2018; $60; 240 pages; ISBN 978-1-61345-151-9.
Internationally renowned comics historian Ron Goulart and publisher Hermes Press present International Cheesecake: Good Girl Comics Around the World! Goulart is known for his writings on the pulps, comics, newspaper strips as well as having written Good Girl Art, which specifically focused on artists in the United States. This all new art book takes the reader on a journey all throughout the world, from Argentina (Arturo & Louis Cazeneuve, The Flame, Aquaman) to Italy (Enzo Magi, The Blonde Panther). It features art by Rene Pellarin (Durga Rani: Reine des Jungles), a sexy “Queen of the Jungle” and as its title make clear surveys artists of the feminine form all over the world.
Beautiful women abound in this book— from the blatantly erotic to the traditional peek-a-boo that cheesecake is known for. Goulart covers it all including, for instance Italian artist Mile Manara, who drew Click, a comic about “a woman who transforms into a nymphomaniac when a button is pressed.”
Goulart discusses both the stylistic choices of many of the artists as well as including historical background of both the comics and the men (and women) behind the pencils and inks.
This tome explores artists from all over the world, and includes original art from a large selection of artists, as well as a striking cover of Ghita by Frank Thorne. Don’t miss out!
