Phantom Stranger Volume 2 Breach Of Faith (TP The &hellip by Gene Ha
Whilst still not being a fan of the changes they have made to the Phantom Stranger since the new 52 re-launch this volume is an improvement on the previous volume, it strays into much darker territory and really gets to grips with the character of the Stranger and also his penance as he wonders the earth betraying people for the greater good to atone for his act of betrayal.

Now that the Rotworld story has been concluded this volume deals with the fallout from the events of the conclusion of that series, I am about to spoil the end of Rotworld so please skip to the end of this review, following the death of his son Cliff and… Read more
