''Tales of Illuminatus' announced


Bobby Campbell has announced Tales of Illuminatus, "The official comic adaptation of Robert Anton Wilson & Robert Shea's Illuminatus! Trilogy."

Read an introductory section here.  The webcomic adaptation will be continued on July 23, i.e. "Maybe Day." 

That's all I know at this point, although I suspect more information will become available.

Thank you so much, Tom!

This is the secret project that's been burning a hole in my pocket since October.

The details will indeed fill in as we go, but I couldn't do anymore hints about "Harbingers" or "Hidden Lights," and figured I shd just cannonball into the deep end :)))

In broad strokes, we're going to do a weekly webcomic series, broken down into 8-12 week seasons, which will be collected into print issues, with pre-orders run through kickstarter.

The first season/issue is called "THE HIDDEN LIGHT" and covers the first half of "The First Trip, or Kether."

I've got the great Todd Purse along with me, with more co-conspirators to be announced as we proceed.

This is all made possible via Fuzz Buddy Productions and their partnership with the Wilson & Shea estates.

We will be sticking closer to the original text than the opening salvo suggests, but humbly request SLACK to zig and zag as needed!

More soon!

Quite the undertaking, looking very much forward to read this on a weekly basis.
All the best to you and your co-conspirators, Bobby!

Many thanks, Spookah!
Psyched for you to see what we've got cooking up :)))
