Mike Friedrich comic
After confronting Yyrkoon at the throne room, Elric escapes with Cymoril to spend an evening together. There, Elric reflects about his past and his role as the emperor of Melniboné.
Sixteen years after he faded into obscurity, the Phantom Stranger rematerialized in Showcase #80 before making his way back into his own series. Yet this dark traveler, whose true name, origins and mission remain unknown was very different to the one who disappeared in 1953. The original stranger was a debunker of the supernatural, but this one was drawn towards it, and possessed formidable powers of his own to combat it - on the occasions when he chose to involve himself in such affairs.The first issue of his own series, likeShowcase #80, contained a new story that framed around reprint tales from both the Stranger's original series and Star Spangled Comics featuring Dr. Terrence Thirteen, also known as the Ghost - Breaker. The Ghost Breaker made a career out of disproving arcane activity and spent many issues of the series trying to reveal the Phantom Stranger as a charlatan. Although he never succeeded, he proved proficient at unraveling other unknown mysteries - albeit, ironically with the help of the Phantom Stranger.
Accounts Settled...Accounts Due: While in the City Punisher tells his mysterious date of how he came to become the Punisher, and how he avenges his families death. But will avenging what was taken from him be enough or will he continue down the road of vengeance?
