“Guitar Phantasy” created by FOUR CE alums & Workshop members

guitar-phantasy-panelsA new comic from Moonrise Comics, called Guitar Phantasy, was created by an entire team of Comics Experience alums and Creators Workshop members! The book made its recent debut at St. Louis’s Project Comic Con.

Guitar Phantasy is written by CE alum Tim Bach (Gargoyle By Moonlight), illustrated by CE art alum Carl Peterson (MAD Magazine), with colors by CE alum Robt Snyder, and letters by CE Workshop member E.T. Dollman. It also features a cover by Silvio dB.

The 11-page full color comic book has been called a rock and roll fairy tale mash-up of Scott Pilgrim and Tolkien, by way of Zeppelin.

Guided by the odd little shopkeeper of a second-hand music store, Kev discovers an incredible guitar and uncovers the power of music and the untapped force inside of himself. But when the devourer of all things, a wicked-looking, music-hating demon appears, can Kev play fast enough, hard enough to defeat the demon?

You can check out a preview of the book right here.

You can also purchase a print copy at Indy Planet or a digital copy at Drive-Thru Comics!

Congrats to Tim, Carl, Robt, and E.T.!
