THREE Phantoms for the price of one....

UPDATED/REVISED POST:  It's just been pointed out to me that I missed posting the 7/1/12 Phantom page!  So I've added it to this post to keep the continuity correct.  Oops!!!

******** 
It's a double dose of The Phantom this time -- as I neglected to post the strip last week.  The Power House Gang story moves along -- while back in the real world, I'm starting to draw the new adventure that begins in October.

Many thanks to those who responded to my Phantom art sale.  The funds from that sale not only helped me purchase a much needed new MacBook (on which I pencil, letter and color the comic strip!) -- but also helped with the purchase of a new furnace.  Our HVAC system conked out on us in the middle of a 100 degree-plus heatwave, and we unexpectedly had to pay to install a new furnace!  Add in replacing my glasses, which had gotten badly chipped, and we had quite a shock to our household budget -- but with the help of Phantom fans worldwide, all is good again. 

The first batch of that art has been shipped -- with pieces going all over the US, and to Sweden and Australia as well!  

A extra big thank you to Jim Cavanaugh of Kansas City's Clint's Comics for purchasing several pages directly from my portfolio (most unpublished at the time) -- putting our fund raising efforts over the top.  Thanks also to Jim for putting up with my three year old son's antics, as the boy tore around the shop,being the nutty three year old that he is.

The "Good Mark" is hereby conferred on all my art buyers.  May The Ghost Who Walks watch over you all!

In the last panel, the Phantom is coolly hitting the baddies with both fists, wearing rings.. it appears that some of the goons gonna get goodmarks on their jaws. While in the previous panels, the rings are absent from both his fists.. You will have to pull up your act, buddy.. Phantom Phans are sensitive about these issues :)

Script calls for him to double punch the baddies -- and yes, I neglected to draw the rings in a previous panel. These things happen....

No sweat. It happens :)

C'mon, he slipped the rings on just before throwing the punches. Surely that purple outfit has some utility pockets to hold the Phantom's stuff?
