Phantom Stranger #1 title splash for "When Dead Men Walk", art by Carmine Infantino, DC Comics 1952.
But the short-lived Phantom Stranger titled that debuted in 1952 can more properly be seen as an editorial reaction to the rise of horror comics, rather than just as another one of the pack There's a copy of this man of mystery's debut in Phantom Stranger #1 CGC 4.0 available in this week's session of[...]
“Swamp Thing”: “The Anatomy Lesson” Fails Alan Moore’s Original Comic Story
The Phantom Stranger sends Daniel Cassidy to prevent Abby and Liz Tremayne from getting murdered by mercenaries at the lab – which help complete Cassidy's Blue Devil origin story in the process. With all that happening, by the time Woodrue reveals the truth about Swamp Thing, it feels like an afterthought It's a major revelation in[...]
Nightmare Nurse
I won't talk much about what the character does in the animated series other than how she makes her entrance, but if you want absolutely no spoilers, then move on to another story. The image above is how she first appeared in Phantom Stranger Vol 4 #8, which credits her creation to Dan DiDio, J.M DeMatteis,[...]
Every Justice League Member Ever
Now I think I'm pretty up on my comic history, but there were some characters I didn't realize where Leaguers, like The Phantom Stranger, Dr Light and Starfire And they let Ambush Bug in How did that happen? [youtube][/youtube] DC has put together a video showcasing all of the members of the Justice League… ever[...]
Here Is Your Jetpack – The Five Years Later Future Of DC Comics Today, From Futures End, Action Comics, Aquaman, Detective Comics, Batwing, Green Lantern, Grayson, Green Arrow, Phantom Stranger, Swamp Thing and Earth 2
And not one willing to use his superbreath to bring rain, or whatnot. Aquaman went to war with Earth 2 in Aquaman: Futures End, though at odds with his isolationist Atlantenas, things didn't go well… Batman has also been in the wars, from Detective Comics: Futures End #1,   Is he man or is he cyborg now? As to[...]
DC Comics Replace Pandora And The Phantom Stranger With New Trinity Team Series
DC Comics has been publishing Trinity Of Sin: Pandora and Trinity Of Sin: Phantom Stranger for a little while now, (but no Trinity Of Sin: The Question) but they were recently cancelled by the publisher. DC have now told Newsarama that in October they'll be publishing Trinity Of Sin, a new series with all three characters, Jim[...]

Though it may not be working… Dunno, Madame Xanadu in Trinity Of Sin: Phantom Stranger, um, the future? What's so special? He's Howard Porter, he is currently DC Comics' best superhero artist and he is having a whale of a time on Justice League 3000. An Icthyosaur shows us it has a fine sense of irony in Turok, Dinosaur[...]
Forty-Three Thoughts About Forty-Three  Comics – Veil, Darkness, New Warriors, Nova, Tales Of Honor, Action Comics, Uncanny X-Men, Phantom Stranger, Moon Knight, Wolverine & The X-Men, Wild Blue Yonder, Sinister Dexter, Gate-Way, Rogue Trooper, She-Hulk, Loki, The Movement, Arkham War, Earth 2, Batwing, Green Lantern, Adventure Time, Evil Empire, Wild Blue Yonder, Suicide Risk, Garfield, Day Men, Shadow Now, Twilight Zone, Bad Blood, Terminator, Lobster Johnson, Grindhouse, Victories, Catalyst Comix, Apocalypse Al, Drumhellar, Clone, Evil Empire, Revival, Saviors, Velvet And Secret
Things like this keep happening. Even the Apocalypse in Apocalyse Al #2 gets a panty shot. Phantom Stranger, stand up comedian That would suck all the joy out of the room quickly enough "I flew here from Jerusalem and boy are my alms tired." See, it just doesn't work But when you need a lawyer in comics,[...]

she dies seem to be a little… hands on. Swamp Thing turns John Constantine into Brian Exposition in Trinity Of Sin: Phantom Stranger. Gambit takes a position on Pat Robertson and Hurricane Katrina in the All-New X-Factor I wonder what he kinetically charged up… a peanut? A coaster? Pat's brain? Something small and potentially explosive, perhaps? Aphrodite IX[...]

Bringing you the biggest sound effects in comics, relative to a character's size. See, in comparison, The Phantom Stranger has got nothing Seriously John Constantine, why the reaction, the 'O's are only just bigger than your head. Frankie, do you remember her, Frankie, do you remember? Fearless Defenders, its last issue, goes out with a blast. It's[...]
DC Asks Retailers To Hold Stormwatch, Phantom Stranger And Catwoman This Week
Bleeding Cool understands that comic retailers have been asked to hold any copies of Stormwatch #24, Phantom Stranger #12 and Catwoman #23 Second Print (the one debuting Joker's Daughter) from going on sale this week. Apparently many retailers will not receive these comics this week but will only get them next week, so DC wants to[...]
The Phantom Stranger Shows A Very Shaky Grasp Of Legal Matters (Spoilers)
From today's rather splendid Trinity Of Sin: The Phantom Stranger Our mysterious supernatural fellow takes Batman, Katana and Deadman to Heaven And we get, for the first time, the new rules of DC heaven And they seem to be along the lines of the Savage Dragon. And along the way, they meet the late, nice, non-rapist[...]
Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen Of Today's Comics – Batwing, Shadowman, Avengers, Deadpool Kills Deadpool, Ten Grand, Dexter, Pandora, Phantom Stranger, Transformers, GI Joe, Victories, Emily And The Strangers, Abe Sapien, Batman Inc, 47 Ronin And Dark Skullkickers
Which means any punishment enacted by superheroes beyon restraint is morally unjustifiable… While in Trinity Of Sin: The Phantom Stranger we discover that God spelled backwards is Dog. Transformers: Robots in Disguise #19 gives us a a return to the Cybertronian personality of Optimus Prime, as dockworker Orion Pax… a pacifist now? A little Paul Gulacy action there[...]
Two New DC Characters And A Threesome – Nightmare Nurse And Open-Window Man
Phantom Stranger and Dial H And today, giving us new characters to entertain and delight. Dial H is always bringing in new characters, it's the nature of the book, our hero constantly reinventing himself as something brand new They began with their best, Boy Chimney, but today have slightly revisited that character and his crew to[...]
Thirteen Thoughts About Ten Comics – All New X-Men, Superior Spider-Man, Dial H, Age Of Ultron, Phantom Stranger, Thanos Rising, Savage Dragon, Uber, Action Comics And Snow Angel
The clues are all there, look to the Vision… And while Phantom Stranger begins with the return of DiDio's reality star Challengers Of The Unknown, now a music beat combo, it's not all about the media… …it's also about the politics with the one percenter creed getting an airing , the big pink monster as some kind[...]
So What's Happening With The Question Then?
The Phantom Stranger is being renamed Trinity Of Sin: The Phantom Stranger. Now we have Trinity Of Sin: Pandora. Can Trinity Of Sin: The Question be far behind? After all, two Trinity books without a third does seem rather lacking… and there was a little bit of a potential tiny tease at the DC ECCC panel that just[...]
Twenty Thoughts About Twenty Comics – Ultimate Spider-Man, Phantom Stranger, Archer & Armstrong, Action Comics, Invincible Iron Man, Hawkeye, The Boys, Thief Of Thieves, Epic Kill, Detective Comics, Thor, Before Watchmen, Think Tank, Green Lantern, Amazing Spider-Man, World's Finest, Earth Two, Green Arrow, Batwing And Action Comics,
But Ultimate Gwen Stacy saves the day by doing her best 616 Kitty Pryde impersonation. Phantom Stranger #0 emphasises that this is Judas Iscariot, if we were in any doubt, but again manages not to name him And while emphasising that Judas himself does not believe his is a bad man, but accepting his expected judgement,[...]
A New Phantom Stranger Comic From Dan DiDio And Brent Anderson?
We know Scott Lobdell is writing Superman #0, we know Scott Kolins is drawing Legion Of Superheroes #0, he've heard vague rumours that Dave Finch may be drawing covers for a new Katana series, we've speculated that maybe, just maybe, JLI will be replaced by a Justice League Of America #0.. But now I've been told[...]
Breaking Pandora's Code – Raven, Zealot And Shazam!
NO one knows the date of his return no one including the angels in Heaven. Behold for he shall come as a thief in the night and in the blink of a eye. Nothing shall stop the end times or the rapture or the tribulation that WILL follow the rapture. THat said Pandora have a nice day. Not sure[...]
