We are given a brief history of *The Ghost Who Walks*. The art is strong and it definitely focuses your attention to the page. This is how the Phantom should be. He is strong and imposing. The story moves along smoothly as the story unfolds before your eyes. The Phantom's character and the air of mystery about him become evident. Bangalla is home to the Phantom and he protects its people. When you see him sitting in the Skull Cave you will be impressed. This is a man and perhaps more that is not to be trifled with. The art is so imposing. The way the Phantom moves in the shadows adds mystery to his character. The action scenes of the previous Phantom, the father of the current Phantom in action are thrilling and hard hitting. The Phantom is a man to be feared by those with evil intent.

The Phantom aside Hero his horse is a magnificent sight. A proofreader was needed for this issue. To many grammar errors. The art is done in a classic retro style giving the Phantom a strong subdued presence. As the Phantom strikes it is hard and fast. When you see him hit a person you can almost feel how much it hurts. The Phantom is not easy to defeat. He is written and drawn with an intensity that you rarely see. The Phantom fights for his family and to protect his jungle. Those who cross him feel his wrath. The Phantom is a timeless character and treated beautifully by Lou Manna here.
