500+ pages of good, old-fashioned proper comic books! You’ve got some great artwork in this one, covering the first half of DC’s Phantom Stranger title. Mostly by industry legend Jim Aparo, who’s stuff looks amazing in black-and-white. The stories are a bit repetitive with their framework, but it’s hard to complain because you’ve always got a good payoff. Dr. 13 (a.k.a. Dr. Terrence Thirteen) appears in most, either trying to prove the Phantom Stranger is a charlatan or in his own stories of exposing supernatural frauds.
Definitely recommended. Don’t let the fact that it’s not cover jaundice you opinion of the content – it holds up well in this format, and today, as great comic literature!
