The Phantom: The Ghost Who Walks
Okay, obviously I was just kidding with that "no more comics" crack. There's always room for more awesome. Like Moonstone's Phantom comics, which are soon rebooting. According to the press release I got, they're leaning towards "edgier stories" that are "torn from today’s headlines of modern day Africa." I'm not sure that's the direction I'm most interested in, but I loves me some Phantom, so I'll give it a shot.
They also promise "new issues more often," which will also be nice.
The Phantom: The Ghost Who Walks #1 will be written by David Michelinie and Mike Bullock, illustrated by Silvestre Szilagyi, and will have a variant cover by legendary Phantom artist Sy Barry.
