Cast Away on the Letter A: A Philemon Adventure

Fred (A) & (W)

Release Date 9/9

Philemon Adventures were originally a french fantasy comic strip that appeared regularly in the magazine Pilote. Never before translated into English, this is the first introduction of the comic to English speaking audiences. The original strips were serialized into sixteen albums of content, so this should be the first of Philemon’s many adventures being re-released. It’s described as being “as original as Alice’s Wonderland, as richly imagined as Little Nemo’s Slumberland, and as exciting to explore as Oz.” Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this!
