Piracy – to the Phantom – is like a red cape to a bull. For centuries – since the first Phantom’s father was killed by pirates – the Phantom has been the nemesis of pirates everywhere. Now, once more, the Phantom must meet that threat as he rallies to seek out and destroy the mysterious GOGGLE-EYED PIRATES.

Walt Kelly’s Peter Wheat: the Complete Series Volume 2 is coming soon!

For immediate release:
Walt Kelly’s Peter Wheat: the Complete Series Volume 2 is coming soon!

Coming Summer 2018, it's Peter Wheat!

Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume Two; ISBN 978-1-61345-155-7; $39.99; paperback 192 pages; all color; All art and script by Walt Kelly; reprints issues 15-25 of the Peter Wheat comic books; in-depth essay to introduce the book.  Special "by order only" Diamond edition, hardcover with endpapers, printed laminated cover and dustjacket, to fit into your library with Hermes Press' Walt Kelly's Pogo The Complete Dell Comics Collection; ISBN 978-1- 61345-156- 4;  $60.
 
Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat comics are renowned for their humor, artistic flair and appeal to both children and adults.  The Peter Wheat comic books are extremely rare and have never been collected as a series before, due to their scarcity and rarity.  Between 1948 and 1951, Kelly drew thirty-five issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, a sixteen page comic book given away to bakeries to promote Peter Wheat bread.  The stories were fairy tales starring Peter Wheat, an elf-sized boy who lived in a hollow tree on the edge of a wheat field where he and the Little Folk battle Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets, and later The Wizard.
 
Continuing in their quest to reprint the rare and never before collected Peter Wheat, Hermes Press is proud to announce Volume 2 is in the works! Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume Two picks up where Volume One left off, starting with Issue #15 and continuing to Issue #25! Dragonel and Peter Wheat have just escaped from the Hornets and are exiled from the castle – they must now survive in the forest until the Hornet Knights are defeated!

Frank Thorne's Ghita:
An Erotic Treasury Volume 1

In 1978, fresh off his run on Red Sonja, Frank Thorne went on to create the lusty warrior-goddess, Ghita. Imbued with the spirit of a mighty general, she would lead a rag-tag band against bloodthirsty armies, and along the way get in some tumbumping. This initial volume showcases some of Frank's earliest art of Ghita including her first appearance in the erotic epic "Ghita of Alizarr," early character designs, un-produced movie storyboards, the Wizard and Warrior Women portfolio, pin-ups, and covers. In this edition the artwork has been scanned from the original pages in color to ensure the closest reproduction!
