The Comic

Phineus is the epic long form graphic novel of magic, monsters and mayhem. Phineus Beam is Mage-Protector of Pittsburgh and Sara Beam is an ex-superhero. Together, the Beams fight evil, destroy monsters and save the world from the forces of darkness.

Phineus has been running for 24 years and counting.

The Creator

Barry Linck has been producing and publishing comic books for well over 2 decades. As writer, artist and creator, he has continued to produce his fan favorite Phineus: Magician for Hire and Gil: The Walking Dead (or Vampires Suck), a monthly comic strip. Barry served as artist on Khozyain Protocol, and contributed artwork for The Creators and Reverie. Barry collaborated with Brian Babyok on such titles as Pan, Phineus: The Glamour, and Dark Time. An avid fan of roleplaying games, Barry co-created Backwaters of Mysticism with John Burris. Barry did the art chores on the webcomic Weirdlings.

Barry continues working on his 24th year of Phineus: Magician for Hire, Bastard Who: The Gentleman’s Chronicles and Phineus: Teen Wizard as well as Creephunter with Mike Wood all while raising a family in Pittsburgh. I hope to someday sell out and have really bad Saturday morning cartoons of my stuff (they still do have Saturday Morning cartoons, yes?).
