That's a much better value proposition, both for your wallet, and trees.
Cambiaria una cosa: el tamaño de las viñetas,las haria mas grandes para apreciar mejor el dibujo del artista.FUNDAMENTAL !!!!!.
Please also republish all the other volumes and the king,Gold key and Charlton Comics...
For the time period these strips ran, the art captures the style of the 1930s wonderfully. Best of all, there is very minimal racial caricature in the drawing of various indigenous tribes compared to most strips of this age. Yes, the natives are depicted in jungle attire and living in huts, but in no way are they portrayed as less than normal intelligence or capability.
This brings me to the writing of Lee Falk. While the Phantom indeed uses superstition and fear to his advantage, the conversations held by the indigenous people are literate and rational. This makes all characters add value to the plot.
This series is a nice change from most comics in that there are no two pane story resolutions. The artists weren't in a huge hurry to shift to the next episode and instead continue story threads at a smooth pace.
This volume uses bright paper of good quality to contrast with the gray tones and inks. I look forward to the next volume and Sunday volumes by Moore. One early April 1937 strip is missing which has an important scene. Maybe Hermes Press will make it available to book owners (I have a 30 year old book of the Sky Band series which I was able to refer to.) Don't let that cause you to miss out on this.
