My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is another very fun-to-read Showcase Presents volume, finishing the reprints of the original Phantom Stranger series.There are also a few issues of The Brave and the Bold, the issue of Justice League of America in which the Stranger was voted onto the team, and a few follow up stories from DC Super Stars and House of Secrets. Also featured are the Spawn of Frankenstein tales that were the back-up for a while, and Deadman features prominently in the last five or six issues.

There’s some excellent art here by Jim Aparo, along with Mike Kaluta providing the pencils on the first few chapters of the Spawn of Frankenstein stories. Arnold Drake (creator of the Doom Patrol) provides about half the scripts. The stories are very fast paced and will draw you in! Recommended for the horror comic book fan.
