Some days after Buckaroo Banzai Origins comes… The First Phantom!!! Seriously, until now, this is my favorite work, and I want to say something about this comic novella format, as a books and comics lover I really like the idea to read this one-shots and in some way I remember Umberto Eco´s illustrated novel The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.
THE PHANTOM: GENERATIONS #1
A new maxi series of one shot comic novellas, with each issue (by a different creative team) telling a tale of one of the 21 Phantoms! Ben Raab and Pat Quinn (of The Phantom: Legacy) return to tell an untold tale of the first Phantom! A tale of intrigue and adventure torn from the very first Chronicle of the Ghost Who Walks! When his newborn son is abducted and his family threatened, the Phantom goes on the hunt to uncover the identity of the mysterious kidnapper and bring the blackguard to justice!
