Aaron "Pat " Boyette was a classic illustrator from the Milton Caniff school who deserves much wider recognition. Boyette used a clean spartan style with large splotches of black ink similar to that first employed by Noel Sickles and championed by Milton Caniff, Frank Robbins and Alex Toth.

Pat Boyette who worked almost exclusively for the small publisher Charlton Comics. Charlton had probably the worst quality printing and reproduction in the entire comic industry in 1960's and 1970's. During this era DC, Marvel, Harvey and Archie all had all their comics published by the same plant in Sparta,Illinois. Charlton Comics were all published in house by Charlton. In fact Chatton started their comic line just so that they would have some thing else to print on their press when their magazines were not being published. Even as a kid I knew their was something "funky" about their comics. Colors were always printed out of the lines and off key. The paper itself was rough and uneven and looked like it was trimmed with an ax.

To say the Hermes Press books are an upgrade is a vast understatement. The reproduction and restoration are excellent and Pat Boyette's art finally gets the treatment it deserves.

This is volume #3 of the Charlton run of The Phantom, but is also volume #5 out of #7 of the complete The Phantom silver age comics that Hermes Press is printing. It reprints The Phantom #48 through #56 and The Pat Boyete covers for each. The small non-Phantom stories and text pages are not included. The art is 100% Pat Boyette.

The Phantom #48 features one 19 page story. Starting with #49 all The Phantom's had three 7 page stories each.

This is the ONLY way to enjoy the Charlton Comics adventures of the Phantom. The low-budget production values used in printing the original comics did a great disservice to Pat Boyette's already-quirky artwork, although it was easily as good as that of Wilson McCoy in the comic strips. This bodes well for the rest of the series, which will feature "Phan" favorites Jim Aparo and Don Newton, who also brought high-quality artwork to the Batman line of comics. The great price on Amazon lured me in, but the quality of Hermes Press editions will keep me coming back for more!

Well worth the price [$15} for a great fun time. The art is okay and the stories are short . You get about 9 comics so this is a good value.

Amazon lists this item as out of stock, while this item has not yet been even published. Hermes press, as always, is sloppy with publications dates unlike IDW and Fantagraphics who are almost always on time. But Amazon should inquire this publisher and try to get a fairly accurate date for the availability of the item.

Jul 30, 2014:

Now that the Book is published, here are the Publication facts for the book:

1. The books was first advertised on Amazon as early as March 2013. The publication date at that time was Jun 2013.
2. The book didn't get published in Jun 2013. After past the publication date, Amazon SW started showing "in 2 to 4 months" delivery status which changed to "out of stock" after 3 months.
3. There was no update (either from Amazon or from the publisher) for until about 2 months after I wrote the review.
4. The new publication date was updated to Jun 2014.
5. It was published in June 2014, although a little late.
