When you’ve written about a thousand and a half of these things over 45 years, only a relative handful are likely to stand out in your memory. One of the standouts for me was the time I spent writing the Phantom Stranger, the supernatural hero created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino that first appeared in DC Comics’ The Phantom Stranger #1 (August-September 1952).

In 1986, I wrote a four-issue Phantom Stranger miniseries (October 1987 – January 1988), featuring art by Mike Mignola and P. Craig Russell, and followed that up with a series of short stories that appeared in the ill-fated Action Comics Weekly. The first was “Kenny and the Demon!” an eight-pager drawn by Kyle Baker, lettered by Bert Workman, colored by Petra Scotese, and edited by Mike Carlin.
