My next “The Phantom: Vietnam” comic chapter is out next week (31st August), and in colour! A 12 page story (and story cover) I wrote and drew, with assistant editor Amanda Bacchi, edited by Glenn Ford, and published by Dudley Hogarth. The story will appear in colour, and is available now in newsagents and here:

Here's a black and white version of one of the story pages:
