So after last months Gold Key story that had the Phantom facing off against some aliens, I wanted to take a look at another Phantom story with a sci-fi twist. I found a couple possibilities, but this one won out...in fact I think I can make this a two-parter! 1986 saw the debut of the animated series "Defenders of the Earth" which teamed the Ghost Who Walks with fellow King Features heroes Flash Gordon, Mandrake the Magician and Lothar. Marvel Comics, through its imprint Star Comics, even produced a short lived comic series based on the cartoon. So today I bring you the story "Family Honor", written by Michael Higgins, and with art by Alex Saviuk and Fred Fredericks.
