Finished The Phantom: Generations, #3 written by Mel Odom (Oklahoma’s well-known author) and illustrated by Michael Stribling. Published by Moonstone.
The comic is written in the narrative style, no balloon bubble dialog boxes. The story is about evil pirates, a damsel in distress and our hero The Phantom, coming to the rescue. Mel Odom always writes a good tale. This is 15th century Phantom, a student of Will S. himself. The art is a collage of realistic photos with artistic overlay. I’m sure that’s not a very clear description, but suffice to say, the art is terrific.
This was a good introduction to Moonstone comics, hope Mel will be doing some more for them.
Looking for a pirate tale, try this one on for size. My only complaint was the printing type, I kept thinking the periods were commas and wondering why the sentences were so long. I know I’m aging. The NewsOk Nerdage guys have a short video review on their podcast site.
