Latest News:

Well, first of all, I'd like to thank Jungle Patrol member O.Sollis for sending us another great piece of Phan Art. To see the the new addition, or any of the previous pieces, just click on the link at the top right of the page.

Secondly, unless a whole lot of people vote in the next 15 hours that they DON'T want me to cover Mandrake the Magician from time-to-time, it looks like the pro-Mandrake camp won by a landslide. Therefore, tomorrow will be the first official "Mandrake Monday".

So, a tip of the top hat to those who voted, and to those who wanted no Mandrake, I can only say that I give you my word I didn't hypnotize anyone into voting for it.


  1. O Solis did an awesome job~ top notch~! We could cast a younger, taller Telly Savalis to play his version of the Phantom.

    Mandrake Monday~! Love it~!

  2. That cover image: I have that comic book somewhere in my collection.

    I did cast my vote, for a bit of Mandrake to be included. He and The Phantom, if not friends, are professional colleagues of some sort... After all, Mandrake was a guest at the wedding of The Phantom and Diana.

  3. I've seen that cover image used 3 or 4 different times for various publishers' versions of Mandrake. I believe The Ghost who walks was also a guest at the wedding of Mandrake and Princess Narda.

  4. Aaron- Thanks for posting the drawing.

    Lysdexicuss- Thanks for the kind words. I didn't see the Telly resembance when I was drawing it, but, hmmm, now that you mention it. It's got me thinking, though. I'm starting work on my next Phantom drawing and I think if I were to base the features (what can be seen of them) on an actor, it might be Rory Calhoun, who has (had?) a great facial structure.

  5. Oscar: I just looked up Rory Calhoun for a reminder. He DOES have great features, nice cleft chin. He'd make a good Magnus, Robot Fighter as well.
