The Phoenix and The Etheringtons UNITE! ... Round 1 ...

After much speculation we are proud to announce that The Etherington Brothers will be joining the remarkable ranks of talent assembling to bring the brand new kids comic - The Phoenix - to life!

Superstars such as Jamie Smart and Neill Cameron will be delivering individual doses of their own brand of excellence to a title that is very much the successor to the magnificent but shortlived DFC.

But I've a sneaky feeling this comic could be even better!

So let's get down to the good stuff! Our first project is a series both drawn AND written by Lorenzo (who wishes to thank you all for your 'get well' messages - he really appreciates the support!). I always dreaded the day when my talented bro realised he could tell stories entirely on his own ... and that day has finally come!
The Dangerous Adventures of Von Doogan will be an ongoing series of brain-squeezingly, melt-in-the-mouth-scrumptiously devious puzzles. Von Doogan is a daring explorer who will stop at nothing to uncover foul conspiracies and undo wrong-doing around the globe. He's a living clue-untangling legend ...  but he's still going to need your help to get to the bottom of the mystery!

Needless to say Lorenzo has outdone himself with this one. But don't take it from me - fire up Doogan's very own trailer below and watch (and listen) as the magic comes to life before your spellbound eyes!

The Phoenix will rise in January 2012 ... more news as it breaks!
