The tale of The Power House Gang continues. Here is this week's Phantom Sunday page, script by Tony DePaul -- everything else by me. Circumstances have led me to take over the coloring of the strip with this week's installment -- and I hope the readers will like my approach in this and future episodes.
Below the final print version, you'll find this week's "extras" -- two stages of the preliminary pencils -- one very rough and another close to finished. You can see I made some changes between the first rough pencil layout and the final version. I'm so glad the current format allows for these large vertical panels (when needed) -- it really lets me do a more dramatic page.
The original black and white ink art for this page will be up for auction on eBay soon. In the meantime, the previous page is still up for bid (see my previous blog post for a link).
See you in the "funny papers!"
