Kit Walker is preparing his revenge against the people that have killed his family and are trying to take over his country. He fakes his identity and goes straight to the mercenaries that were hired to carry their previous attacks. But can Kit Walker carry on the legacy of the Phantom?
The story is good, but unfortunately, there aren’t enough threats opposing the Phantom. Everything seems so easy for him. I understand the character is highly trained and good at what he does, but without a compelling opponent, it’s just a slaughter. Every time he faces off against someone, that person dies. In essence, the story just goes through the motions and shows us a mean tough guy that some stupid villains should not have crossed.
Ferigato’s work is solid. He’s the kind of artist that doesn’t get as much work anymore because their style is not popular, although he is a solid storyteller. His work is completely competent. Every character has a different face. His sets are lush and filled. His inks are beautiful and contrast elements in his composition quite well. Coupled with the great colouring, this is a visual feat. This story has much potential. If you haven’t a Phantom story in years, this one may be for you.
