The Phantom Stranger gets no respect. First Madame Xanadu won’t let him protect Jack “The Creeper” Ryder from Man-Bat…


… and then Blue Devil and Etrigan have the gall to fight while he’s trying to soliloquize!

Sunday Soliloquy

Today’s soliloquy gets a bit more into exposition than I normally like, but that’s OK. It’s the Phantom Stranger, and that’s what he does.

I can’t say no to a guy who’s so devoted to his catchphrase.
