    The art is odd. Its not bad, but its not hot. Its super detailed with a lot of good visual in the jungle. However, the hero looks like a villain and the action is not very kinetic. Read Full Review

    This book has a whopping four covers, all featuring The Phantom is various blood-soaked poses. The two Alex Ross covers are very much drawn by Alex Ross, so the chances are you know whether or not you'll like them, but I enjoy Ross' work and found his two covers to be well-drawn. I have no complaints with the other two covers, either, and they are indeed well-drawn in their own rights. My main problem with these covers is that they're all very similar and rather generic "" they don't really suggest what's going on in the book, other than the appearance of The Phantom. Phantom-fans will no doubt be intrigued as to why The Phantom is not wearing his traditional costume (a question unanswered in these pages, and I can only assume that he didn't have access to it despite carrying around his other Phantom possessions), but for newcomers these covers do little to pique one's interest.More Enjoyable For Fans Read Full Review

    So while the title of this comic may be promising -- "The LAST Phantom"? That means this will be the last time we have to read a comic this hideous?-- the "#1" on the cover, along with the announcement that this will be an ongoing series, promises that more of this kind of thing will come our way. Perhaps the series should be retitled: "The Last Phantom For Now, Sure, But It Will Make Your Eyes Bleed." Read Full Review
