The Ghost Who Walks... Walks Again!

Dynamite Comics -- the clever folks behind many successful revivals of classic adventure characters including The Lone Ranger, Zorro, Red Sonja, Buck Rogers and the Green Hornet -- have added a new Golden Age titan to their pantheon!

The Phantom
-- long the mythical scourge of pirates in and around the jungle country of Bangalla -- is undoubtedly one of the most popular superhero characters ever created. With almost 80 years' worth of daily newspaper strips, multiple comic book series, an animated series, a video game, a theatrical film and a TV movie on his resume, The Phantom has rewarded legions of fans with decades of adventure. Now, Dynamite Comics teams up with superstar creator Alex Ross, writer Scott Beatty and artist Eduardo Ferigato to bring us the next chapter in the Phantom's history... the ominously-named The Last Phantom! Even though we've only seen two preview images it already looks like an impressive overhaul of the Ghost Who Walks.

Scheduled to launch in August, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for further announcements on this one -- it looks guaranteed to get people talking!
