The Collected Adventures of Phil and Dixie #1
Phil Foglio attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and started in comics in the 1970s, as a Hugo Award winning fan artist. He became an illustrator and comic artist, working mainly in the science-fiction genre. Starting in 1980, Foglio wrote and illustrated the monthly comic strip 'What's New with Phil & Dixie' for Dragon Magazine (TSR Games) for a period of three years.
Foglio has illustrated the work of science-fiction author Robert Lynn Asprin, and also adapted the first 'MythAdventures' novel to a comic book series for WaRP Graphics ('Another Fine Myth'). He then illustrated comic books for DC Comics ('Angel and the Ape', 'Plastic Man', 'Stanley and His Monster'), Marvel and First Comics ('GrimJack', 'Dynamo Joe'). Foglio created his long-running character 'Buck Godot' for Just Imagine.
Together with his wife Kaja he founded Studio Foglio, where he publishes his comics 'Girl Genius' and 'XXXenophile'. In 2005, they cancelled their publishing activities and presented 'Girl Genius' as a webcomic.
