A little while ago we had the opportunity to ask Six Quick Questions of the crew at Hermes Press. Their answers were so effusive we just knew that there was a number of slower questions to ask in a recorded podcast!
In a wide-ranging and thought-provoking interview, the ChronicleChamber team picks the brains of the American publishers of The Phantom: Dan Herman and Sabrina Herman of Hermes Press.
It's a long chat for sure, so it's worth tuning in and spending the time to get a full understanding of Hermes Press and who they are. To begin with, Dan details his history as a publisher and the origin of the company.
Dan also takes through the publishing process in great detail, including the difficulty in getting print-worthy material gathered together. He is also good enough to answer the hard questions around delays in publications, pre-orders and the like.
What we should have realised but is perhaps not widely known is that Dan is a massive collector are well as being a publisher, so we also get a fascinating insight into his collection of Phantom art.
So all in all a fascinating conversation and one we will reflect on many times over the next few weeks and months,
