Steve Perrin’s Black Phantom #1
Before Black Panther, Luke Cage, or Black Lightning… there was The Black Phantom!
In 1964, in the pages of Mask and Cape #4, Steve Perrin and Ronn Foss created the world’s first Black superhero: The Black Phantom (two years before the Black Panther)! In 1966, they expanded the text story to a 13-page strip in Fantasy Illustrated #6. Recently, John Jennings, a Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at the University of California at Riverside and a Hugo Award Winner, was working with Steve Perrin on a revival of The Black Phantom at the time of Steve’s death.
Jennings and editor Jim Burrows have worked with Steve Perrin’s widow and the children of the late Ronn Foss to bring us this piece of comic history—in color for the first time—colored by G-Man Comic’s own David Ellis Leary. For purists, we also produced a black & white edition. The remastered Black Phantom is just the first project that the team will be publishing under the Sankofa Comics label.
Story: Steve Perrin | Art: Ronn Foss | Color: David Ellis Leary | 24 pages
A 28 page comic
