As reported by ChronicleChamber last week, world renowned comic book artist and unofficial Phantom ambassador Sal Velluto will be appearing at Lucca Comics and Games Convention at the end of this month. In further exciting news, we can now reveal that he and colourist Eugenio Mattozzi have produced a folio of Phantom prints that will be available for sale at the event, Europe's largest comics convention.
There are eight exclusive prints in the collection, produced on high quality 200g Bristol paper. An appealing (11x17; A3) size, the images have been hand-selected by Sal from among the forty or more covers he has had published. The featured covers have previously illuminated books produced by Egmont (Fantomen) and Frew Publications.
The Phantom is coloured purple in seven of the eight prints, with one blue for colour consistency. Eugenio has also created a one-off design for the cardboard folio to house the prints, in a stunning black envelope with a white close up profile image. Each print will be signed by both artists.
A very limited number of these folios are being created, only available at Lucca from Sal and Eugenio. While he is primarily at the convention to promote his new Italian comic Zagor, Sal will of course do some Phantom promotion on the side, together with Massimo Gamberi.
ChronicleChamber is run by phans for phans and we know that very few of our readers will be able to attend Lucca to purchase these. So, in a non-convention exclusive and as a ChronicleChamber first, we have coordinated with Sal and Eugenio to bring 20 folios to Australia.
To order a copy of the Lucca Phantom folio (8 prints), please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The 20 sets will be allocated on a first in first served basis. We are only asking buyers to pay the cost price of $85 (covers sale price, import to Australia and postage within Australia). For purchasers outside of Australia, please contact us via email for a quote on international shipping. The artists have requested payment in full before they will ship the prints, so we do require payment (via PayPal) to hold your set.
Please note: For fairness to all and ease of time stamping, orders may ONLY be placed via email, NOT via social media or other messaging service. This post will be edited once all sets have been reserved and paid for.
Sal & Eugenio introduce the folio set on Facebook 23 October 2019 and a copy of the video can be found here
