Phantom Road Comic Series from Jeff Lemire and Gabriel Walta Launches in March

Phantom Road

Eisner Award-winning creator Jeff Lemire (The Bone Orchard Mythos, Little Monsters) teams up with Eisner Award-winning artist Gabriel Hernádez Walta (The Vision, Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: Old Man Whittier) for a new grindhouse horror series Phantom Road from Image Comics.

The pair reunites after their success with Sentient.

“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,” said Lemire in an interview with ScreenRant. “Something massive in scope like all the books we loved when we were getting into comics. Something with the scope of Preacher, Sandman, and The 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 a character named Dom, a long-haul truck driver trying to escape his tragic past. One night, he stopped to assist Birdie, who had been in a massive car crash. They pulled a strange artifact from the wreckage that thrusts their lives into fifth gear. Suddenly, it becomes a midnight run through a surreal world where Dom and Birdie find themselves in the quarry of strange and impossible monsters.

“Working on Phantom Road is such a gift! Doing a creator-owned book with Jeff is something I’ve been wanting to do for many years and having the chance to collaborate with Jordie, Steve, and Great is a real joy. Also, seeing the Image logo in our book is just a blast!!” added Walta.

Phantom Road #1 is available in comic book shops on Wednesday, March 8. Also, the issue is available on many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
