Goddess Gambit

Front cover for Goddess Gambit by Verne Andru, 2012

Published in 2012; main webpage is here; ordering lynx are here

Circa the Year of Dome 2000, Anvil the Artificer, a then otherwise unnamed, highborn Lazaremist later called Tvasitar Smithmonger, dedicated the first three devic talismans, or power foci, that he forged out of molten Brainrock to the Trigregos Sisters.

The long lost, possibly even dead, simultaneous mothers of devakind hated their offspring for abandoning them on the far-off planetary Utopia of New Weir. Not surprisingly, their fearsome talismans could be used to kill Master Devas (devils).

For most of twenty-five hundred years, they belonged to the recurring deviant, Chrysaor Attis, time after time proven a devaslayer. On Thrygragon, Mithramas Day 4376 YD, he turned them over to his Great God of a half-father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, to use against his two brothers, Unmoving Byron and Little Star Lazareme, in hopes of usurping their adherents and claiming them as his own.

Hundreds of years later, these selfsame thrice-cursed Godly Glories helped turn the devil-worshippers of Sedon's Head against their seemingly immortal, if not necessarily undying gods. Now, five hundred years after the 1000 Days of Disbelief, they've been relocated.

The highest born, surviving devic goddesses want them for themselves; want to thereby become incarnations of the Trigregos Sisters on the Hidden Continent. An Outer Earthling, one who has literally fallen out of the sky after the launching of the Cosmic Express, gets to them first ...

In the Year of the Dome 4825, Morgan Abyss, the Melusine Master of the Utopian Weirdom of Cabalarkon, seizes control of Primeval Lilith, the ageless, seemingly unkillable Demon Queen of the Night. The eldritch earthborn is the real half-mother of the invariably mortal Sed-sons but, once she has hold of her, aka Lethal Lily, Master Morgan proceeds to trap the Moloch Sedon Himself.

In the midst of the bitter, century-long expansion of the Lathakran Empire, the Hidden Headworld's three tribes of devil-gods are forced to unite in an effort to release their All-Father. Unfortunately for them, they're initially unaware Master Morg, the Death's Head Hellion herself, has also got hold of the Trigregos Talismans, devic power foci that can actually kill devils, and Sedon's thought-father Cabalarkon, the Undying Utopian she'll happily slay if they dare attack her Weirdom.

Utopians from Weir have never given up seeking to wipe devils off not just the face of the Inner Earth, but off the planet itself. Their techno and biomages, under the direction of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon's extremely long-lived High Illuminary, Quoits Tethys, have determined there is only one sure way to do that -- namely, to infect the devils' Inner Earth worshippers with fatal plagues brought in from the Outer Earth.

Come All-Death Day there are more Dead Things Walking than Living Beings Talking. Believe it or not, that's the good news.

Kadmon Heliopolis had one life. It ended in October 1968. The Male Entity has had many lives. In his fifth, he and his female counterpart, often known as Miracle Memory, engendered more so than created the Moloch Sedon. They believe him to be the Devil Incarnate. They've been attempting to kill him ever since. Too bad it's invariably he, Heliosophos (Helios called Sophos the Wise), who gets killed instead.

On the then still Whole Earth circa the Year 4000 BCE, one of their descendants, Xuthros Hor, the tenth patriarch of Golden Age Humanity, puts into action a thought-foolproof, albeit mass murderous, plan to succeed where the Dual Entities have always failed. He unleashes the Genesea. The Devil takes a bath.

Fifty-nine hundred and eighty years later, New Century Enterprises launches the Cosmic Express from Centauri Island. It never reaches Outer Space; not all of it anyhow. As a stunning consequence of its apparent destruction, ten extraordinary supranormals are reunited, bodies, souls and minds, after a quarter century in what they've come to consider Limbo. They name themselves the Damnation Brigade. And so it appears they are -- if perhaps not so much damned as doomed.

At least one person survives the launching of the Cosmic Express. He literally falls out of the sky -- on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head. An old lady saves him. Except this old lady lives in a golden pagoda, rides vultures and has a third eye. She also doesn't stay old long. He becomes her willing soldier, acquires the three Sacred Objects and goes on a rampage, against his own people, those that live.

Meanwhile, Centauri Island, the launch site of the Cosmic Express, comes under attack from Hell's Horsemen. Only it's not horses they ride. It's Atomic Firedrakes!

Phantacea Revisited 1: The Damnation Brigade

Front cover for DB graphic novel, artwork by Ian Bateson, 2012, with additions by Chris Chuckry, 2012

A rip-roaring outburst of creativity featuring Jim McPherson’s taut storytelling and spectacular artwork gleaned from the pages of Phantacea 1-5 (1977-1980), Phantacea Phase One #1 (1987) and #2 (unpublished), it presents the stirring saga of extraterrestrial devils and the doomed but unyielding Damnation Brigade.

Anheroic Fantasy Illustrated, with a wraparound cover by Phantacea’s master colourist Ian Bateson and 120 pages of interior artwork in glorious black and white by a wide variety of exceptional artists often at the very beginning of their careers, the two-part Phantacea Revisited series reveals how Jim McPherson’s ongoing Phantacea Mythos really got underway.

Artists featured in the graphic novel include Dave Sim (from just before he began to publish Cerebus the Aardvark), the aforementioned Ian Bateson, Verne Andru (creator of ‘420’), Vince Marchesano, various Day brothers and George Freeman (‘Captain Canuck’).

At present both printed copies of the pHRev1:DB graphic novel and an interactive PDF can be ordered from either the publisher or Drive Thru Comics; click here for instructions or here to order online. Dedicated webpage is here. Its press release is here.

Book Two of the Launch 1980 story cycle, "Nuclear Dragons" is based on storylines first started in the PHANTACEA comic book series in the late Seventies. It's also a much expanded version of the 'Centauri Island' web-serial, which was published in the late 1990s on pH-Webworld.

Print version contains 376 pages. Its Auctorial Preamble is here. Its Press Release is here. Excerpts from the novel link from here. The bonus chapter is taken from "Helios on the Moon", the final entry in the Launch 1980 story cycle.

Phantacea Revisited 2: Cataclysm Catalyst

Bw version of front cover for Cataclysm Catalyst; rt by Verne Andru, text by Jim McPherson

Cataclysm Catalyst, the second Phantacea Revisited graphic novel, collects the entire Soldier's Saga storyline, which began in Phantacea Two (1978) and concluded in Phantacea Six (1980). Most of the artwork in this sequence was by Verne Andrusiek (later Verne Andru). Verne redid and completely coloured a black and white drawing of a proposed cover for an issue of Phantacea Phase One specifically for this publication. It's quite splendid.

Of particular interest to Indy comics collectors in general and Phantacea aficionados in particular are the final six pages of the graphic novel. They were done by Phantacea stalwart Ian Bateson in 1980 for inclusion in Phantacea Seven, which was never published. Digitally re-lettered by Jim McPherson in the past year, this the first time they have seen print. Also included is a reprint of "Tail Teller", a short piece drawn by Ian Fry in the mid-1980s for the Phantacea Phase One project.

Print version contains 96 pages. Ordering lynx are here; an interactive PDF can also be ordered from the publisher and/or Drive Thru Comics. Dedicated webpage is here; lynx to excerpts are here;

Helios on the Moon

Cover adjusted by Jim McPherson, 2013; art by Ricardo Sandoval, 1978

Scientists first detect signals coming from somewhere out in space in early 1978. Their excitement is palpable. Finally they have proof humanity isn't alone in the cosmos. Then, about a month after their initial detection, the source is pinpointed. Elation immediately gives way to near-panic. The beams are coming from the Earth's moon!

In an extraordinary session of the Security Council, the United Nations agree to meet this off-worldly intrusion aggressively. The result, the UNES Liberty, is already in moon orbit when, on the Thirtieth of November 1980, the launching of the Cosmic Express takes place on Centauri Island.

At the same time, on the far off planetary Utopia of New Weir, three Great Goddesses preside over the latest session of the Courtroom of the Visionary.

Meanwhile, on the Inner Earth of Sedon's Head, the Hidden Continent's most revered Death Gods rededicate themselves to reuniting their fragmented family, devils almost to a one.

The Dual Entities have returned to their own timeline determined to make life for everyone not just vastly better but perfect. Oh, oh.

The climactic entry in the epic Launch 1980 story cycle, "Helios on the Moom" is based on storylines first started in the PHANTACEA comic book series in the late Seventies. It's also a much expanded version of a web-serial with the same title, which was published in the late 1990s on pH-Webworld.

Its Auctorial Preamble is here. Its Press Release is here. Excerpts from the novel link from here. The bonus chapter is taken from "Decimation Damnation", the start of the next Phantacea Mythos story cycle, which is now available.

Page background: The pyramids and even more famous He-Sphinx of the Giza Plateau in Egypt; he, rather than it, is called Andy the Androsphinx (as opposed to Ginny the Gynosphinx) in "Feeling Theocidal"; photo shot in 2000; image manipulation by Jim McPherson, circa 2002.
