Phonogram is a brilliant six-part mini-series developed by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie and released by Image Comics in September ’06. With covers paying homage to some of the great britpop albums of the 90s ( Definitely Maybe, It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah, Suede, Elastica) , they’ve proven to be quite successful, with the first two issues selling out immediately (currently on their second printing). The premise of the story is as follows:

“PHONOGRAM traces the misadventures of Phonomancer David Kohl as he hunts for whoever is interfering with his old patron, the long-dead Goddess of Britpop, Britannia. If he fails, history itself will be rewritten – with him entirely out of it. ”

Issue #4 is out today.
