Inspired by The Lost 100-Pagers and Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues, I've decided to create my own take on comic book covers. These will be all-original art illustrated by myself. Thank you and a good afternoon. Excelsior!

The Ghost Who (Cat)Walks

This is obviously a riff on Sheldon Moldoff's cover for Detective Comics 241, featuring "The Rainbow Batman." It's kind of appropriate for the Phantom, since his costume is colored differently across several countries. The most famous one is the iconic purple, but in other countries it's either red or blue, mostly in Europe. I think I've read somewhere that creator Lee Falk intended it to be gray, like how it looks in the daily newspaper strips.


  1. Reno: I just want to say how much I love your PHANTOM Detective Comics #241 homage ... as both a lifelong Phantom phan and a longtime DC Comics employee/freelancer. Brilliant idea superbly executed!

  2. Do you own the copyright of this cover? I would like to run this as a cover of my magazine, Comics Revue. You can get in touch with me at

  3. I like the cover. Hope to see you in a regular gig. This Ogie Cruz btw. Using my phone

  4. Thanks, Anthony. I grew up with your work on DC Comics. Glad you loved it!

    Thank you, too, Ross, Ogie and Glaucio!

    Rick, I'll email you. :)
