It's only a couple of weeks now until Sy Barry makes his appearance at the New York Comic Con, on October 6th 2018. As we reported exclusively earlier this month, Sy will have available a brand new limited edition print, and he has sent us a preview copy of the image to unveil for phans!
The below proof of the final print shows a dramatic action scene, with The Phantom being 'rough with a roughneck' in a typical wharf-side setting. It's an exciting picture that may be a bit of a departure from much of Sy's other recent Phantom work - often depicting a happy, family friendly - but it certainly evokes memories of fights with pirates and typical battles with bad guys.
The prints will measure 11 x 14 inches (approx 28 x 36 cm) with a white border making them easy to frame - about an A3 size frame will do the trick! The high GSM paper stock will show the vibrant colours - this will by a print that phans around the world will want to add to their collections.
Only a lucky and dedicated few can pick up a copy of the print, however. They are truly limited edition, with only 100 created. Each will be hand numbered and signed by Sy.
As one of Sy's favourite phans Duncan Munro has told us: "It's a great action scene which belongs on a cover and instead will grace the Skull Cave of a lucky few."
To purchase a print, the best way is to attend the Con and meet the man in person! However while the print has been created especially for the New York Con, Sy's son David has agreed to send a bulk order down under directly to Duncan to save Aussie phans on shipping. The price works out at $120AUD (to match the USD$85 price at the con), plus a share of shipping costs. Any Australians interested in this should contact Duncan privately.
Phans in other areas of the world should contact David by following this link as soon as possible to reserve a copy.
