Reviews - What do customers think about The Phantom: The Legacy?

False Legacy  Feb 11, 2007
I have to warn Phantom fans away from this one. Raab's writing is tedious and wearing. In order to mimic old English writing, he simply went for awkward syntax that made reading this poorly conceived tale a true chore. Raab also re-writes the true origin of the Phantom so that the Phantom does not create any of his signature icons himself, but simply flounders into a ready made situation. This is a truly forgettable effort...hopefully.
An interesting surprise  May 19, 2006
I'll admit I was a bit disappointed when I opened THE PHANTOM: LEGACY and found that it was not a standard comic, but rather a short story with accompanying illustrations. I had been hoping for something more in the form of the early Lee Falk strips, in this case telling the origin of the first Phantom. After settling into the story, my disappointment was relieved - THE PHANTOM: LEGACY is a neat little story, and definitely worth the time of any Phantom fan. What's more, the creators get kudos for their presentation of the material. Writer Ben Raab gives us a story that is modeled after the adventure tales of Daniel Defoe, Robert Louis Stevenson, or even Edgar Rice Burroughs. The text is in a longhand font that looks as if it were written with a quill pen. Artists Pat Quinn and Art Lyon Provide full and half-page ink illustrations that resemble woodcuts. This is all printed on a background that resembles aged paper, with the occasional blotches, marks, and fingerprints that would be expected on a document from the 16th century. It definitely adds a touch of realism to the story of Christopher Standish, aka "Kit Walker", and his transformation from a shipwrecked youth in Africa to the legendary Ghost Who Walks.
A Rip Off.  May 16, 2006
To say that I was disapointed with this book, would be a major understatement. If I had not ordered the book ahead of time, I would have left it at the store. It's attrocious. First of all be warned, it's not a graphic novel ( extended story with sequential art). It's more of a large formated novel with pictures. And not very nice pictures. And the font is very hard to read.

And the writing, never mind the fact that Raab is a lousy writer. The writing is in some pseudo 16th century literature (heck I don't even think it goes back that far) that's almost indecipherable. Here's a sample:

'Pon the docks was I reared. In the shadow of the merchant ships. Their tall sails a'billowing in the breeze, do I count among my earliest recollections. Oh the majesty! O the mystery! Oh, what strange and exhilarating sights their gallant crowns must have beheld! Oh what grand adventures!'

And that's how the rest of the 96 page book reads.

Unless you're a Phatom Phreak and want it for your collection. I wouldn't shell out money on this.
