Comics – Black & White/Color
May 1, 2017
In the first issue, the current Phantom, 21st in the line, is shown as a young boy growing up in the Deep Woods, playing with his pygmy Bandar friends and training with his father, the 20th Phantom. It is quickly established that his education is sadly lacking, and that he also needs to start developing his own set of values and learn some humility along the way, so it is decided to send him to the United States to begin his schooling.
Kid Phantom is written by Gabriel Henriquez and illustrated by Queensland comic artist Paul Mason. It will be published quarterly in 'digest size' and this first issue contains a double page of stickers in the centre.
Although aimed at a younger audience, a lot of regular Phantom readers will find it a fun read as well.
