Phantom Artist Profile- Sy Barry
Sy Barry: 1928-
Mr. Barry attended the School of Industrial Art in New York City in 1943. After he completed his schooling, he went to work assisting his brother Dan Barry on the adventure strip Flash Gordon. Sy inked Flash Gordon and occasionally ghosted for Dan. He also did freelance ink work for DC, Marvel and Gleason.
After working on both Flash Gordon and Tarzan, Barry was hired to do The Phantom in 1962. His run on the series lasted until 1994, making his the longest run (as artist) on The Phantom ever (so far).
