Ben & Kit: Tag-team OF JUSTICE!
"He has the strength of ten tigers.
You never find him, he finds you.
He has a thousand eyes and a thousand ears.
His voice turns blood into ice.
He who sees the his face, dies a horrible death.
He is the Ghost who Walks. The Phantom. The Man Who Cannot Die."
He also sometimes team up with America's Coolest Founding Father. Like in this story.
This is taken from Fantomen Krönika #4 2009. Fantomen Krönika is a reprint publication and the story was originally published in Fantomen #8 2002. Story by Claes Reimerthi, art by Carlos Cruz.
For those poor fools who do not know The Phantom, here's the traditional recap page!
These are my scans and my translation, they could probably be done better but I just wanted to get the gist across. These are 6 pages of a 27-page story in a reprint collection that has three stories of the same length.
So, the 11th Phantom is in London for some reason, and gets involved in a murder case...
Then plot happens, it's not really important but it turns out a former cuban slave-hunter wants revenge on some plantation owners because they told they'd pay him to kill his employer but then refused to pay. So he's using musk smeared on the boots to have his dog track his victims and kill them (also like in The Hound of the Baskervilles he's smearing the dog's teeth with luminescent stuff) The important thing is that they're out to get the dog, so Ben builds Kit a weapon.
Yes, Benjamin Franklin built The Phantom an ELECTRIC DEATH STICK!
Then they catch the villain, he exposits a bit and the Phantom clobbers him, like he always does.
Next story: Kit & Ben Vs... THE LOCH NESS MONSTER!
