Showcase Presents: Phantom Stranger - Volume 2 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This collection of Phantom Stranger stories begins well. Len Wein is the writer and Jim Arparo is the artist. Other excellent artists also contribute, and the Legion of Super-Heroes legendary writer, Paul Levitz, writes many of the later stories. Unfortunately, the artwork on these stores declines considerably, especially for the back up story of the Spawn of Frankenstein. Like a television with a cloudy picture, a good story simply can't survive bad artwork in a comic book. I enjoyed reading Phantom Stranger stories I had never seen as a boy, but I would recommend this book only for hard core fans or those who, like me, would like to make a trip down memory lane.
