Air Raid Robertson on May 28, 2009

I've decided to take some old comics from the 1940's and redo the inks and colors after my own fashion. (Sort of like Wendy Carlos doing those synthesizer versions of Beethoven and Back standards)

My first subject is Fantomah. She was created by the writer/artist Fletcher Hanks in 1940 and is arguably the first comic book superheroine.

Fantomah will be making an appearance in future installments of Air Raid Robertson, so redoing one of her old adventures seems pretty appropriate to me.

This is the original, unaltered page to Fantomah's appearance in Jungle Comics #15. (Cover date March, 1940) This is just to give you an idea of what I did with it.
