WHACK! Phantom punchline.
The Power House Gang story nears its conclusion with a round-house punch from the Phantom. Today's strip is shown above. Below is a small shot of the blue line prelim for the page direct from the Manga Studio program I use for pencils and lettering. For inking, I knock down the blue quite a bit -- printing it at about 50% of the intensity shown here.
Last image on the page is my reference photo of the punch. Since I'm my cheapest, most readily available model, the characters in the strip are often posed by me -- using my MacBook's "Photo Booth" program (image reversed). Plastic replica gun in hand -- and yes, that's a Superman watch.
