Hermes Press have announced that the second volume in their DC Phantom comics series is now available for pre-order.
Titled ‘The Phantom – The Complete DC Comic’s Volume Two‘, the hardcover book follows the first volume released in the series in May 2021. A total of 3 volumes are due for release in this series.
Below we see volume 1 on the left and the newly announced volume 2 on the right.
The book is currently listed on the Hermes Press website, however the exact specifications of the publication have not yet been updated.
Volume 2 will likely contain a reprint of a portion of the second series of DC Phantom comics, which was released in the USA in 1989 containing 13 editions. The series was originally published in full color on gloss pages.
Interestingly, Hermes Press have decided to publish their hardcover book with the cover containing the image which originally appeared on the cover of edition number 8 back in 1989.
This DC series which contains 13 editions when originally published, is likely to be split by Hermes Press across 2 volumes, with the third and final book containing the balance of the series not found in volume 2.
The Phantom comic covers of the original series released by DC back in 1989 can be seen below.
As seen with volume 1 released by Hermes Press, volume 2 is likely to contain additional material, above and beyond just the reprint of the comic strips. Keep an eye on the Hermes Press website, as I’m sure additional information will be provided within due time.
Pre-orders are currently open for this new edition on the Hermes Press website, with a delivery date of 2022 currently being provided.
