Phantom Captain Action #2 Review from comicsbulletin...

Reviewed by Ray Tate...

"Reno Maniquis, Keith Williams and Bob Pedroza contribute illustrations that lends visual impact to Lady Action's burst of color on the scene. Their Captain Action is a stalwart figure but one prone to youthful body language, especially when faced with defeat.

Maniquis, Williams and Pedroza present the Phantom as larger than life. The Ghost Who Walks moves as quick lightning, and his footfalls are powered by thunder. He tumbles. He leaps. He vaults. The artists display a lifetime of training in every one of the Phantom's moves. It's what you expect. It's what you get.

The Phantom & Captain Action really surprised me. The Phantom wasn't denigrated. I came away liking Captain Action more than I did. Bullock is Moonstone's Phantom writer, and when he draws the Phantom out of the shadows, this book sings."

I agree with that review and would add you drew an excellent Lady Action as well - very sexy and realistic looking!

Overall, the issue was an excellent read with the characters coming across as serious but not grim and gritty. Bullock's Phantom was especially interesting as he was more of a strong silent type.

Fantastic Job!

Thanks, Jim! I just wish I would've had more opportunities to draw the Phantom.

Watch out for Season 2 of Captain Action, I draw Lady Action a lot in that book. :)
