For a change,have this special Phantom strip which appeared in India only as Diamond Digest#11 (as again due to some controversial scripting,ToI preferred to omit it in Indrajal!).
Now,there's a very "interesting" incident associated wid this colored strip .When I received it from Andreas months ago,I was carrying this notion that this fabulous coloring was done by Sy Barry himself,as without a professional,such quality(which you'll see soon) is nearly unattainable!!
So,during mailing,I once told 'some' friend about this amazing coloring n sent him the d/l link! I thought 'he' would be amazed...but holla,he replied back as "well,this strip was definitely not inked by Barry,in fact it was done by ME few years back."!!!
ohh...I was shocked like a hell...I asked whether he just jokin' but no..he was not & when I asked Andreas about it ...he confirmed,it was originally a B/W Daily(as usual) and indeed inked by this man:Ivan Pederson of Norway!!!All thanks for his such a talented show-case! :o))
WOW!!! I simply loved this coloring....he also done inking in some others strips which I'll put in future asap!!(Wid this quality,one will simply label the DC coloring as rubbish!!..what a pity,DC used pretty poor & 'art-destroying' coloring in BOTH Phantom & Mandrake strips!!!! :-(( )
Now,lets enjoy his creation wid the thrilling script of Falk & supported by equally brilliant art-work of Barry ..between,it's a 1965 Phantom Daily!
This is a 45-page strip.Have a look in some these amazing inking ....more to come! :-)
